Worlds of Webber by David Webber (short stories)

  1. A certain Talent– I recognise the AKKA device from a story I have read somewhere? Is it Williamson? or an early Heinlain? I might even own it. It was about a space cadet set to watch the guardian (a girl) of the device from aliens. This one is a prequel as they talk about the inventor might die and his now 6 year old daughter might be used by the ones stealing the secret (its in a box that have been stolen).
  2. In the Navy – A story from the Ring of Fire universe (Eric Flints) about building ironclad ships in the thirty year war. I liked the story so now I have to go read 1632 by Eric Flint before continuing.

I will finish this book later.
