I doubt we'll ever get a follow up to that. After the developments of the last novel, its pretty unrecognizable as the "mirror universe" most people think of.
But, IMO at least, that's all the more reason to continue, so we can see how it continues to develop and change.

I would as well, I just doubt it would have a wide appeal.

Maybe not as a series of its own, but it could be tied into the ongoing Typhon Pact storyline. After all, there are loads of potential allies for everyone over there.

Just recently read this one. Liked.it a lot. Good conclusion to the mirror.books but I would like to see continuation even though its unlikely. I like the idea that memory omega did some interdimensional traveling to get its tech

If memory serves me correctly, David Mack did plant a subtle yet crucial Easter Egg suggesting this very idea towards the end of Silent Weapons. I had to re-read it once or twice to get what I was reading, but when the lightbulb went off, it was like, "That was genius!!!"

Thank you, thank you. I'll be here all week. Remember to tip the veal and try your waitress.

^ I'd like to hear that as well. Be explicit. Put it in spoilercode if you have to!

Re: Rise like lions ideas on the Mirror universe?

^ And there you have it. Definitely a nice jumping point for future Mirror Universe stories and if this spoiler is an indicator of things to come, it makes future Typhon Pact novels more interesting because now there's a true game changer potentially in play that would tip power clearly in favour of the aggressive members of the Pact...but this, of course is my own opinion.

As for tipping the veal...meh, service was okay. But the waitress? Now THAT was something!!!
