REPORTS OF MY DEATH HAVE BEEN GREATLY EXAGGERATED . . .
The People's Republic of Haven made a tiny mistake when it announced the execution of Honor Harrington. It seemed safe enough. After all, they knew she was already dead.
Unfortunately, they were wrong. Now Honor has escaped from the prison planet called Hell and returned to the Manticoran Alliance with a few friends. Almost half a million of them, to be precise . . . including some who know what really happened when the Committee of Public Safety seized power in the PRH.
Honor's return from the dead comes at a critical time, providing a huge, much-needed lift for the Allies' morale, for the war is rapidly entering a decisive phase. Both sides believe that victory lies within their grasp at last, but dangers no one could foresee await them both.
New weapons, new strategies, new tactics, spies, diplomacy, and assassination. ... All are coming into deadly focus, and Honor Harrington, the woman the newsies call "the Salamander," once more finds herself at the heart of them all.
But this time, the furnace may be too furious for even a salamander to survive.
In just a few short years, David Weber has shot to the forefront of science fiction! The core of his work is Honor Harrington, the toughest, smartest starship captain in the galaxy. Now Weber invites you to join him and his invitees as they explore Honor's universe.

First Time in Hardcover!
It can no longer be denied: David Weber is The Next Big Name. Hordes of fans have been bombarding our website and your stores with demands for more! more! more! David Weber. And then they started complaining about the first five Honor Harrington novels being available only in paperback. It seems that after the ninth or tenth time they reread the books, they start falling apart. The customer is always right, at least about Honor Harrington, and in February 1999 we offered a special limited collector's hardcover edition of On Basilisk Station. The response was successful, to say the least, and we followed up with a hardcover edition of Field of Dishonor, and now present Honor of the Queen, again in a special hardcover edition with a pictorial binding, and at a special paperback-sized price.
