Adaptation Watch: David Weber’s HONOR HARRINGTON Being Adapted to Film, TV and Games is reporting that Evergreen Studios is adapting David Weber’s Honor Harrington…and not just to film, but also in comic book, digital game, webisode, and television series formats.

Tales of Honor is what they’re calling their multi-platform adaptation, and no word yet on which part of the Honorverse — which includes dozens of novels and anthologies — will be adapted.

The Honor Harrington military science fiction series is named after its principal protagonist, Honor Harrington. She’s an intelligent, genetically engineered officer in the Royal Manticoran Navy of an interstellar monarchy, and she see lots of action and makes lots of enemies. Through a series of adventurous missions, Honor advances through the ranks, playing the roles of military heroine and later, an influential politician. The series, intentionally re-imagined as “Horatio Hornblower in space”, is set 2,000 years in the future when hyperspace travel allows humanity to colonize deep space.

    Hate that stupid catlike alien or whatever it is on her shoulder.And why is she always looking in the same direction?

  2. Steve, it’s a treecat (Nimitz, in this case)! Native to the planet Sphinx. I’ve never seen a Baen artist draw a treecat in a way that didn’t look stupid, but they’re supercool in the books.

    She always looks to her right because her left side is her good side. 😉
