The Stories

Ms. Midshipwoman Harrington” (also in Worlds of Weber) is Honor’s snotty cruise on board War Maiden with Captain Bachfiisch where she first encounters Elvis Santino.

Changer of Worlds” provides background on Nimitz and Samantha’s visit to his Bright Water clan on Sphinx which sets in motion the emigration of the treecats. The action occurs after the kits are born and before they all head back to Grayson.

From the Highlands” provides the background on young Helen Zilwicki’s kidnapping in Chicago, the adoption of Berry and Lars, and Anton Zilwicki’s taking up with Cathy, the Countess of Tor, and the Anti-Slavery League after providing both Cathy and Jeremy X with proof of Manticoran involvement in Manpower.

Victor Cachat hooks up with Kevin and Ginny Usher. And Admiral Parnell, late of the prison break engineered by Honor, is arriving in Sol to testify against the Peeps.

Nightfall” is a non-essential story that summarizes what has been written elsewhere in which Esther McQueen attempts her coup, gets Rob Pierre killed, and the Octagon blown up with Saint-Just left in charge.
