|In this issue: honor’s high cost; a hero must kill a god, and a small band of soldiers stand against a looming threat. Plus, a new short story by Marisa Wolf!
THE HIGH PRICE OF HONOR
Lieutenant Brandy Bolgeo has come home from the Battle of Hancock station to find that her wounds, her ship’s brutal damage, the deaths of so many friends, were the fault of Lord Pavel Young, an arrogant, aristocratic coward who broke and ran in the face of the enemy. Who left her ship to pay the price for his craven desertion under fire. And whose powerful political allies are determined to protect and preserve him at any price.
Now Young is free to seek vengeance on the people he feels have “wronged” him. People like Paul Tankersley and Honor Harrington. But Captain Harrington can look after herself, and Pavel Young is about to face the fury of the woman the newsies call the “Salamander.”

THE END IS NIGH
It has been nearly two hundred years since Hadrian Marlowe assaulted the person of the Emperor and walked away from his Empire. Now, a messenger has come to Jadd, bearing a summons from the Sollan Emperor for the one-time hero. HAPSIS, the Emperor’s secret first-contact intelligence organization, has located one of the dreadful Watchers, the immense, powerful beings worshipped by the Pale Cielcin.
Called out of retirement and exile, the old hero—accompanied by his daughter, Cassandra—must race across the galaxy and against time to accomplish one last, impossible task:
To kill a god.

MURPHY’S LAW ON THE LAWLESS FRONTIER
It has been 15 Terran months since Colonel Rodger Murphy and his Lost Soldiers were dropped in the 55 Tauri binary system. Since then, they have forged an uneasy alliance with space-dwelling descendants of the Ktor, liberated the earlier human inhabitants of the planet R’bak, and driven their oppressors from the neighboring system back into a few fortified cities.
But there’s another pivotal battle looming before them: intercepting the Harvester fleet sent by those same oppressors, the Kulsians. Soon the Kulsians will descend on R’Bak to strip it of its rare biological resources and destroy any powers that might pose a challenge to future Harvesters. As the enemy draws near, time runs short for Murphy and his Lost Soldiers.

“NEXT RIGHT ACTION” BY MARISA WOLF
Pirra Derale, fully graduated Specialist, Interstellar Defense Corps. Guarantor of her family’s prosperity. Defender of the civilized planets against the overreach of the United Colonial Forces.
So what if she were so far from home she couldn’t spot it in the sky with a telescope? It was there. She was here. And her being here would make them safer there. Facts.
Pirra was a soldier. She was recruited, and she was trained, and she’d been found worthy enough to send to an active front for her first assignment. She wasn’t going to worry about why only two of them were left in the holding bay of the Kanamede. She wasn’t going to throw up on her uniform, or her one remaining friend, or the spotless metal floor of the ship . . .
