info, some criticism about some of David Weber's novels:
David Weber is a prolific author of science fiction and fantasy series with no less than a half dozen active novelized serials. The serials are either building up to spectacular endings or are setting groundwork for epic confrontations. Unfortunately some serials have been idle for years. As much as I like that he's taking on other author's series in addition to starting new ones of his own, I am worried that he won't get a chance to complete the pre-existing serials anytime in the near future. Nonetheless, I still read whatever new he is putting out at anytime with Baen books(I like webscriptions) and Tor.
      I find David Weber's novels to be very readable. His stories are  populated with likeable characters as well as entertaining villains. Even though he does a lot of exposition in his stories, I think he does it well and I find the details interesting and entertaining, especially when his worlds and characters are so rich with fascinating histories. My main concern with David Weber's numerous serials is that as many of the series are building up to an increasingly spectacular climax and with few of his series complete, making his track record in this regard unknown, I worry whether or not if expectations are being driven to unrealistic heights. Having said that, I thought that the Prince Rogers series ended satisfactorily and the Honor Harrington series itself has gone through several story mini-arcs well too, but then again it's the one leading to the biggest climax.
