David Weber


USA flag (b.1952)

David Mark Weber is an American science fiction and fantasy author. He was born in Cleveland, Ohio and now lives in South Carolina.
Many of his stories have military, particularly naval, themes, and fit into the military science fiction genre. He frequently places female leading characters in what have been traditionally male roles.
One of his most popular and enduring characters is Honor Harrington whose alliterated name is an homage to C. S. Forester's character Horatio Hornblower and her last name from a fleet doctor in Patrick O'Brian's Master and Commander. Her story, together with the "Honorverse" she inhabits, has been developed through 13 novels and four shared-universe anthologies
