she takes a licking but keeps on ticking

Have you seen our weblog or our monthly book review?

Weber is the author of some of the more interesting space opera I've read in the last few years. He's not top-tier -- Lois McMaster Bujold, for example, is much better -- but he's consistent.

He's best known for his Honor Harrington series, which can partially (but inadequately) be described as "Horatio Hornblower in Space". Honor Harrington is a Captain in the Royal Navy of the Star Kingdom of Manticore, which is involved in occasional wars and skirmishes with another federation of star systems vaguely reminiscent of France. The reviews listed below have considerably more information, so I won't repeat it again here.

He has another, shorter, series which begins with the book Mutineers' Moon. The reviews have quite a lot in them, so I'll only say that it's the most outrageous display of super-science I've seen since I read E.E. Smith's Skylark series.
