David Weber is the science fiction phenomenon of the decade, a New York Times best-selling author who receives critical praise worthy of a Heinlein or an Asimov. He is often compared to C.S. Forester (celebrated creator of Captain Horatio Hornblower) for his novels of the exploits of starship commander Honor Harrington, the most recent of which was the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Publishers Weekly, and Amazon.com bestseller, War of Honor. Weber's work ranges from epic fantasy (Oath of Swords, The War God's Own) to breath-taking space opera (Path of the Fury, The Armageddon Inheritance) to military science fiction with in-depth characterization (the awesomely popular Honor Harrington novels). Weber lives in South Carolina with his wife Sharon and their three children. John Ringo had visited 23 countries and attended 14 schools by the time he graduated high school. This left him with a wonderful appreciation of the oneness of humanity and a permanent aversion to foreign food. A veteran of the 82nd Airborne, he later studied marine biology, but the pay was for beans, so he turned to quality control database management (much higher-paying). Then Fate took a hand, and he now is in the early stages of becoming fabulously wealthy, which his publisher has Assured him is the common lot of science fiction writers who write for Baen Books. With his bachelor years spent in the Airborne, cave diving, rock-climbing, rappelling, hunting, spear-fishing, and sailing, the author is now happy to let other people risk their necks. He prefers to read (and of course write) science fiction, raise Arabian horses, dandle his kids and watch the grass grow. No grass is growing under either his feet or his computer, since in just a few years, he has written the New York Times best-selling military SF series so far comprising A Hymn Before Battle, Gust Front, When the Devil Dances, and Hell's Faire, as well as co-written two novels connected to the series, The Hero (with Michael Z. Williamson) and Cally's War (with Julie Cochrane), which was yet another New York Times best seller.Weber, David is the author of 'We Few', published 2005 under ISBN 9780743498814 and ISBN 074349881X.
