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

Time Trials (2023)
(Time Trials, book 1)
D J Butler and M A Rothman
"Time Trials takes an eclectic band of 21st century adventurers - led by brilliant, unorthodox Chinese-Jewish Egyptologist Marty Cohen - back in time to the earliest pre-history of Egypt to battle demons, hobnob with the ancient king who first united Egypt, and discover things about themselves they never knew. Oh, and along the way, prevent the total extermination of the human race. It's a nonstop action story that mingles strains of Indiana Jones and Stargate in a blend that's all its own."

Murphy's Lawless (2020)
(Murphy's Lawless)
Griffin Barber, Kacey Ezell, Charles E Gannon, Kevin Ikenberry, Chris Kennedy, Mike Massa and Mark Wandrey
"(B)lends ruthless political pragmatism, advanced aliens with subtle and dangerous agendas, and human courage, determination, and sacrifice into an action-filled story that keeps readers up late. Very late, in my case. You should already have Chuck Gannon on your shelves. If you don't have him there, rectify your oversight immediately!"

Common Source (2020)
(John Simon, book 3)
Bryan Thomas Schmidt
"If Ed McBain had written science fiction, the John Simon series would be it. It's that good."
