The stories are "A Certain Talent" (aka "The Williamson Effect")
"In the Navy"
"The Captian from Kirkbean"
"Sir george and the Dragon"
"A beautiful Friendship"
"Ms. Midshipwoman Harrington"
"Miles to Go" (aka "Bolos 3: The Triumphant")
"The Traitor" (Aka "Bolos 4: The Last Stand")
So as you can see it is a wide showing of his talent.
If you are a Weber fan it is a great book to get to hand out to people to "sample" him. If you are a new reader it is a nice jumping off point for diving into his works. If you are an experienced reader, you may wish to consider if you already have these works on your shelf. Of all these, the only one I haven't read was Sir George and the Dragon.
He gets points taken off for not producing much original work this time, but it is still a well presented book.
Aside from the duplication problem, I did enjoy the new stories and the familiar ones were also enjoyable.
This is just absolutely brilliant!! Even if only two of the stories are Harrington-related, LOL.
"A Certain Talent" (Legion of Space, 0.5; originally published in The Williamson Effect)

"Miles to Go" (Originally published in The Triumphant (Bolos, #3; Bolo, #6))

I particularly like the early Honor story, but all are great. Without these anthologies you just don't get the whole story.Published on July 9, 2013 by TRAVIS R ALLEY
