Japan cover Edit
It seems Honor Harrington is great manga character :) --dotz 15:27, October 21, 2010 (UTC)
Agree - the Japanese covers are great. Silent Hunter UK 22:12, July 13, 2012 (UTC)
"Original" US CoversEdit
The On Basilisk Station cover File:HH1_Original_cover.jpg labeled US (original) is the cover for the first hardcover printing, something like 6 years after the book was first published as a paperback.
The Honor of the Queen cover File:HH2_alternate_US_cover_01.jpg 'labeled US (original)' is the cover for the first hardcover printing and the cover File:HH2_alternate_US_cover_02.jpg labeled US (alternate) was the first paperback cover and again predated the first hardcover publication.
The Short Victorious War cover File:HH3_Original_Cover.jpg labeled Original US cover is the original paperback cover published before the first hardcover printing.
The Flag in Exile cover File:HH5_Original_Cover.jpg labeled US (original) is the cover for the first hardcover printing, some years after the first paperback edition.
I just wanted to point this out because "Original/First Cover" and "Original/First Hardcover" are not always the same. And of course all of this is IIRC because I don't have copies of those books in my hands. I also seem to remember that the first hardcover editions of those first few books, done after they were published as paperbacks, were special/limited editions and had the art printed directly on the binding not on the dust jacket. 188.8.131.52 16:25, March 10, 2012 (UTC)
Is it just me or does Honor's depiction on some of the French covers remind you of Napoleon? Silent Hunter UK 22:15, July 13, 2012 (UTC)
- Not really. Which one in particular? There are now quite a few French ones.--Samanda (talk) 20:47, August 28, 2012 (UTC)
- The original one for The Honor of the Queen mostly and those whee she has short hair. Silent Hunter UK (talk) 21:25, August 28, 2012 (UTC)
Why no TOC? Edit
Might be worth noting where the title is altered on translation; this is common for titles with idioms in when they get translated (the James Bond film The Living Daylights is a notable example)
Some examples from my rusty French and German:
On Basilisk Station
- French: Mission Basilisk
- German: A Lost Cause?
- Russian: Commander of Station Basilisk?
The Honor of the Queen
- French: For the Honor of the Queen
Field of Dishonour
- German: With Cursing and Shame
Flag in Exile
- French: Pavilion of Exile
- German: In Exile
Honor Among Exiles
- French: Silesian Masquerade
Mission of Honor
- French: In mission?
Changer of Worlds
- German: The Space Cadet of Sphinx
