Christopher Weuve is a professional naval analyst and wargame designer. He spent six years at the Center for Naval Analyses (the Combat Information Center of a Burke-class destroyer would make an excellent starship bridge), and then five years on the faculty of the US Naval War College.
Outside the day job, he’s a founding member of BuNine (David Weber’s Honorverse analytic visualization team), and was an editor for House of Steel: The Honorverse Companion, in which he also co-authored (with David Weber) the “Building a Navy in the Honorverse” chapter.
As both an avid science fiction fan since before he was old enough to read and a Distinguished Graduate of the Naval War College, Chris spends his free time analyzing Real-World(tm) naval warfare and how similar subjects are represented in science fiction. He is (to the best of his knowledge) the only person ever interviewed (twice!) by the journal Foreign Policy about science fiction warships. He still describes himself as an Iowan, almost three decades after he moved east.
