Queen's Brother and Honor Jun 11, 2011
This book contains a novella by Weber, two short stories by other authors and a 'article' on Starship Armor Design which I assume was written by Weber. The novella "Let's Dance" has a young Honor Harrington commanding a destroyer and getting involved in a diplomatic incident. It's a good story and is somewhat of a back story. "Ruthless" by Jane Linkskold is an exciting read though starting somewhat slow it rapidly gains your attention. Manticorean(sic) Queen Elizabeth's only brother is the main male character. He is also part of a political incident with diplomatic repercussions. Timothy Zahn's story "An Act of War" is good but slow and somewhat tedious. The article "An Introduction to Modern Starship Armor Design" is a slog for those of us who are not really technically minded.
