So, where to start? How about with Games Workshop and those funsters over at The Black Library? Excellent, glad you agree.
Here are details of two, yes two, further releases this month from The Black Library:
Just as Guilliman’s dream of Imperium Secundus seems finally to be realised, the Night Lords launch a full invasion of distant Sotha. Their target? The mysterious Mount Pharos…
With the noble Emperor Sanguinius ruling from Macragge, Imperium Secundus stands as a lone beacon of hope even as the Warmaster’s forces continue to ravage the rest of the galaxy. Roboute Guilliman, still Master of Ultramar, has convinced his brother that Terra has fallen and that the mysterious Mount Pharos on Sotha now holds the key to mankind’s future. But the Night Lords, those cruel and pitiless sons of Konrad Curze, have been watching from the shadows, and make ready to launch their long-planned attack on the Pharos itself…
Written by Guy Haley, Produced by Matthew Renshaw & Narrated by John Banks.
Audiobook running time: 13 hours and 23 minutes.
Pharos is the first full length solo audio book I've done for The Black Library and I'm particularly grateful to producer Matthew Renshaw for asking me to work with him on the book. We had great fun recording and I'm delighted to say that there are further audio books in the pipeline brought to you by the same winning team (!).
|Rogal Dorn, Primarch of The Imperial Fists|
|Roboute Guilliman, Primarch of The Ultramarines|
|Konrad Curze, Primarch of the Night Lords, the Night Haunter|

Roboute Guilliman's new Imperium faces its first test as the Night Lords, scattered after the events of Prince of Crows, attack in force.
A Horus Heresy anthology
The Warmaster’s rebellion spreads to every corner of the galaxy in this Horus Heresy anthology. The galaxy will never know peace again, not in this lifetime or a thousand others...
The Emperor’s vision of mankind ascendant lies in tatters. The Great Crusade is naught but a fading memory. The dream of Unity is no more. But with Horus’s rebellion spreading to every corner of the Imperium and war engulfing new worlds and systems almost daily, there are some who now ask: were the signs there to be seen all along? In these dark times, only one thing is certain – the galaxy will never know peace again, not in this lifetime or a thousand others...
This anthology contains twenty-one stories from the Horus Heresy:
Sermon of Exodus by David Annandale
Howl of the Hearthworld & Lord of the Red Sands by Aaron Dembski-Bowden
Black Oculus by John French
The Laurel of Defiance, A Safe and Shadowed Place & Twisted by Guy Haley
Artefacts, The Phoenician, Imperfect & Chirurgeon by Nick Kyme
The Devine Adoratrice & Wolf Mother by Graham McNeill
Hands of the Emperor & The Harrowing by Rob Sanders
Virtues of the Sons by Andy Smillie
All That Remains & Gunsight by James Swallow
By the Lion's Command by Gav Thorpe
Allegiance & Daemonology by Chris Wraight
A great collection of short stories and I'm thrilled to have narrated a couple of them; The Harrowing by Rob Sanders and All That Remains by James Swallow.
Aided by a vampire hunter who is searching for Dracula, they look into the nearby Buda caves, currently being used for storage by the military - and find that the soldiers have problems of their own.
Stalked through the tunnels by a monster, and up against an ancient evil, the race is on to escape alive - and foil the dastardly schemes of the maniacal Zoltan Frid.

In the meantime, thanks for sticking with this fairly 'epic' update and I hope it makes some kind of sense!
