David Weber

David Weber is an American science fiction and fantasy author. In his stories, he create a consistent and rationally explained technology and society. Even when dealing with fantasy themes, the magical powers are treated like another technology with supporting rational laws and principles. Many of his stories have militaristic, particularly naval, themes. He challenges current gender roles in the military by assuming that a gender-neutal military service will exist in his futures. As he often places female leading characters in what have previously been seen as traditionally male roles, he is able to explore the challenges faced by women in the military and politics.

His most enduring character is Honor Harrington[?], who, together with the universe she populates, has been developed over 10 (so far) novels, as well as several short stories.

His novels include:
