Book of the Week: Torch of Freedom.

Another one on the can’t-wait list: Torch of Freedom is Eric Flint and David Weber’s sequel to Crown of Slaves, which is itself one of the books of Weber’s Honorverse space opera series. Sort of Hornblower, only with starships. Suffice it to say that I buy these in hardcover, when I can.

So, it being Sunday, we replace the previous sequel (Imager’s Challenge: The Second Book of the Imager Portfolio) with this sequel.

    Yah, this one’s good, I read it a couple of weeks ago. Weber needs to write faster, he’s got a bunch of series I’m anxiously awaiting the next book in…

    Weber seems to have caught Tom Clancy syndrome and caught it bad. I’m kind of glad I can’t afford the hardbacks, because no shelving sold at Ikea or Walmart could hold a shelf full of those books. 🙁

    I read them electronically. Baen has a service where every month you get the new releases (usually 4) and 2-3 back catalog rereleases in ebook form for $15. And they release them in quarters, as a serial, so the first quarter of Torch of Freedom went up in late July, and the last quarter went up about October 15 or so. Each month’s stuff shows up usually between the 15th and the 20th of the prior month, so most of the time you get it 2-3 weeks before the hardback hits the shelves.

    Oh, and if you don’t want the entire month’s books, individual books are usually $6, so it’s a great deal. And they’re entirely unencumbered with DRM so no worries about losing your library when you switch devices.
