* ''Literature/TheWarGods'': Fantasy novel set in an original world created by David Weber for gaming purposes. Uses the 5 Races of Man with the equivalent Orcs as the 5th race. Notable as being set AfterTheEnd of a Magitek empire. Has 4 novels and a novella, with another novel and novella to tie up the current generation eventually. A 7 book MagnumOpus is coming out with book one being currently edited, and per WordOfGod its the work he's really wanted to do for years. There's more random WordOfGod as its his private TabletopGame.

* HappilyMarried: Weber likes to put his characters through many, many types of hell -- but this does not usually include an unhappy marriage. {{Perfectly Arranged Marriage}}s are all over the ''Literature/{{Safehold}}'' series, and in ''Literature/HonorHarrington'', those characters who do settle down with someone long-term tend to be very happy. Even the BigBad of a series (see: [[spoiler:Albrecht Detweiler]]) can be happily married, in this case with [[spoiler:his wife Evelina]]. Exceptions occur, of course, but they are far more rare than a happy pairing.

* TrollingCreator: As the fans visiting his forums can attest, to the point when "whatever we think, RFC[[note]]Runs For Celery, Weber's nickname on the forums[[/note]] will surprise us" and its variations are a common theme in many posts. A case worthy of mention is when in one of replies to ''Hell's Foundations Quiver'' snippet he posted another, short snippet which (apparently) presents the death of one of major characters (but cuts just before anything is made clear). When congratulated on making a good joke, stated that this is from the middle of the book.

** ...With contemptuous ease...

** ...** "...With contemptuous ease..."



** People never hold their hand (or hands) "palm up". It's ''always'' "palm uppermost".



** Anything that's really difficult or grueling has a tendency to be a "copperplated bitch". Even in Safehold, though at first only Merlin used it. After Charis actually started sheathing their ships in copper (and people who saw Merlin frequently started using the phrase) it has cropped up once or twice from people who aren't in the "inner circle".
** "Unmitigated bastard" (or unmitigated similar-epithet) also crops up fairly regularly.

** So far almost every star nation[[labelnote:*]]Erewhon is an exception[[/labelnote]] in the Honorverse firmly supports and uses the death penalty where it comes up, while more specifically, the method of execution is ''hanging''. No character or government, not even from the [[StrawmanPolitical quarters]] you'd expect, is shown to question or oppose it.

* RealPersonCameo: One of David Weber's fans asked (and got) permission to include Sharon in [[FanFic/TheInstituteSaga a non-Weber fanfic story]]. Apparently the request amused them.
