The Books Forthcoming list in the June 2022 issue of _Locus_ has the 7th Honorverse anthology, _What Price Victory?_ as a February 2023 release from Baen.

I'm guessing we'll hear the backstory for Alfred Harrington after all :)

Thanks for the notice!

That's the story of how he met Allison, but it's after he got mustanged to officer. He was on Beowulf because of that.

We're missing the story of what happened to him as an enlisted and why he got the Osterman Cross. That's what I expect is coming in this new anthology.

Could we be getting a Shannon Foraker story?

What do you think will show up?

After all, with the title, it makes sense for a story like that...

I'd love to get a Shannon story, but the title could apply to Alfred's story. He got the Osterman Cross, which meant he must have done something incredibly important (a victory) but at great personal sacrifice (a price).

Or we could get a new Charles story. Maybe he was selling victory but for too high a price?

MWW said awhile ago that story would be a standalone novel but could be?

Did he? The only "standalone" novel we've seen was House of Steel; everything else is either serial (and as of today, at a minimum 4 books in the series) or in an anthology.

Oh, oh! He was repeating his gambit with HMS Ellipse by trying to sell victory to the SLN. But said victory was a trojan horse: GNS Francis Mueller. Which made the price he had too pay too high.

I don't think the Graysons are going to let Francis Mueller get too far from Yeltsin's Star, was a matter of self-preservation. She's liable to inadvertently start a war with somebody.
