Publisher's Summary

Lady Dame Honor Harrington - starship captain, admiral, Steadholder, and Duchess - has spent decades defending the Star Kingdom of Manticore against all comers. Along the way, she has become the legend known as "the Salamander" from her habit of always being where the fire is hottest... and also from being a national best seller (Ashes of Victory).
But it's a big universe, and Honor's actions affect a lot of lives, not all of them human. And their actions affect her - a lesson "Ms. Midshipwoman Harrington" learns years before rising to command rank, when a desperate battle against "pirates" who aren't quite what they seem begins her brilliant career. Closer to home, in "Changer of Worlds" a secret that the alien treecats have kept from their human friends for hundreds of years is about to come out... and completely change the relationship between the two species forever.
Meanwhile, Eric Flint weighs in with "From the Highlands". Honor can't be everywhere, so when the People's Republic of Haven tries to stage a political assassination on Earth, Anton Zilwicki - husband of one of the Star Kingdom's most revered military martyrs, and father of a young woman who is clearly a chip off the old block - steps into the breach... and takes the opportunity to settle some old scores along the way. And finally, Esther McQueen and Oscar Saint-Just square off for their final confrontation in Noveau Paris in "Nightfall".

Great to learn more about Honor Harrington

This is a collection of short stories that fill in some of the gaps in the Honor Harrington series. You must have read the series or else you will be lost. The first book in the HH series starts with Honor as captain of her own ship. This story tells of Honors "snotty" cruise as a Midshipman. We can see the beginnings of her development into a great naval officer. Glad that they kept Allyson Johnson narrating the story of Midshipman Harrington. Johnson is the voice of Honor Harrington. The short story about the tree cats tells about when Harrington returns to Sphinx and Nimitz takes Samantha to meet his clan and encourage some of them to follow him and his kittens to Grayson. In the series it never explained how they got the other tree cats to come with them.
"From the Highlands" tells the early story of Anton Zilwicki and daughter Helen. In the series we saw the death of Anton's wife Captain Helen Zilwicki who is escorting a convoy of Manticor ships (one carries her husband and child) when the PEEP hit the convoy.
Helen (daughter) is kidnapped in this story (often referred to in the series) and the Countess or Tor, Anton, Jeremy X and Victor Cachat rescue her. We are introduced to Berry and Lars who was featured in another sub-series.
The last short story is about Admiral McQueen"s over throw of Oscar St Just's PEEP government.
All stories fill in information to the main series and also leave room for lots more stories.
All the narrators did a good job.

Good science fiction

I personally like the Honor Harrington series. It is military science fiction. This is not usually my favorite genre, but this series is well written. This book contains great short stories that fill in Honor's background or flesh out that universe. Good stuff.
