The books have made The New York Times Best Seller list.
The series follows Honor Harrington, military heroine and later, influential politician, during a time of extreme interstellar change and tension.
Justyna Mielnikiewicz received the grant for 2016 to complete her project , in which she looks at life in the former Soviet states, 25 years after the fall of the Soviet Union, and the role ethnicity plays in the political development of these countries.
She will return to New York in October and give a Smith talk on Monday evening, October 16th, 2017. She will also be a presenter at the Smith Fund Annual Ceremony on October 18th.
Most of the more than 20 novels and anthology collections cover events between 40 AD with "PD" (Post-Diaspora) dating beginning with a dispersal to the stars from our sun ("Sol") in 2103 AD.
The main series novels are set primarily in a timeline beginning 40 years after Harrington's birth on October 1, 3962 AD (1859 PD), and some short stories flesh out her earlier career.
Justyna Mielnikiewicz: I think it is too early to talk about any concrete outcome because I am still finishing the work supported by the grant.
The Smith Fund Grant is no doubt widely perceived as one of the most important recognitions in the field of documentary photography.
