..they've been a highlight of the AOS stories for me too, although I felt the first book about them was stronger.

The Burden of Loyalty was released yesterday in the MMPB format.

The poor man really has a stake in the country. The rich man hasn't; he can go away to New Guinea in a yacht. The poor have sometimes objected to being governed badly; the rich have always objected to being governed at all
We love our superheroes because they refuse to give up on us. We can analyze them out of existence, kill them, ban them, mock them, and still they return, patiently reminding us of who we are and what we wish we could be.
instead of deserting the leaders who had lied to them, they would protest that they had known all along that the statement was a lie and would admire the leaders for their superior tactical cleverness.

The rate these are continuing to come out certainly indicates there's still a market for proper-WHF fiction, it seems daft to ignore that now that AoS is settled in as its own thing and anyone who was going to be converted over to the newshiny already has been.


My impression is that currently they are going through the entire "series" sets for Warhammer in the Chronicles releases. Most of these are at least 3 books being put into one and a good few also include a short story or two here and there. I figure once they've done the last of the chronicles books they might well turn to collections of short stories and some of the one-off stories that they've also published. It would be a good way to get attention on them and also cut down the library that they have to stock both physically and digitally. Already the Chronicles slices a segment of their inventory by over 2/3rds in size.

Aye I get their thinking, and I've bought most of the Chronicles books(either because of the short stories you mention, or because my previous versions have been almost read to pieces in some cases), I was just hoping they'd be a little more ambitious with it or at least would indicate definitively that they never do intend to be more ambitious.

If you check the 3rd post in the dropdowns then there's around 10 individual series that are still to be published as collected editions (and at least 2 of them are already on the upcoming list - Bountyhunter and Thanquol)

Gotrek and Felix already has a 4th omnibus on the coming soon and I'm sure they'll complete it with an end-times omibus edition as well.

Darkblade I'm sure will likely get one or two releases as well, though I believe those are also comics for some so might be a bit different.

Not forgetting that they are also doing limited runs of the old Inferno books so that might well also cover a lot of the short stories that are up for sale. Though its not a long term solution.



Suffice it to say that even if they only collect up the major series its still going to cut a lot of the inventory down to a very suitable chunk. I'd even welcome them removing the individual books and ebooks from sale eventually so that they only hold the collected versions - esp for short stories. It would make their store page a LOT more friendly to newbies.

By "ambitious" I more meant "entirely new WHF stories using the Chronicles branding".

At present I think they might do some more Horror stories, but otherwise I don't know if they'll keep it around like that. Some of the more popular characters might, but I think GW's focus will be on producing more AoS based stories.

Finally getting around to reading the Hollow Mountain. So far, excellent world building as with the first one.

Also..

Spoiler:
It's pretty neat to see one of the characters undercover at the Chartists and seeing an "up to date" galactic map showing an anomaly happening around the Eye of Terror that's spreading outwards.

As with the last two years, reader's choice, one 40k, one fantasy novel. Not a great selection this time around, YMMV as always, but also nice to see them gauge which unabridged audio book they should do next.

Honourbound obviously, or else..



As for the books, Fifteen Hours and Malekith got my votes.

https://www.warhammer-community.com/2019/08/21/siege-of-terra-beyond-the-novelsgw-homepage-post-4fw-homepage-post-3/


The Siege of Terra is getting bigger! Starting in early 2020, a series of novellas will tell additional tales from the final war of the Horus Heresy. They will expand the scope of the series and reveal all manner of secrets about the Siege. The first of these novellas is called Sons of the Selenar – a tale of the Shattered Legions and their role in the war in the Solar System written by Graham McNeill.

The eight novels in the core Siege of Terra series follow the story of the pivotal conflicts, from the first clashes in the outer reaches of the Solar System, as seen in John French’s The Solar War, all the way to that iconic final duel between Emperor and Warmaster… though you’ll have to wait a while for that one (and no, we’re still not telling you who’ll be writing it).

The Siege isn’t just one huge battle though. It involves elements of more than a dozen Space Marine Legions – and nearly as many primarchs. Alongside them are billions of human soldiers, hordes of daemons, Titan Legions, Knight households and more. In all of this turmoil, there are countless stories of heroism, sacrifice and adventure to be told within the Siege of Terra setting.

Graham McNeill has been a key member of the Horus Heresy team from the very beginning, writing the second novel in the series, False Gods, as well as many other milestones along the way, including Fulgrim, A Thousand Sons and The Crimson King. Many fans of the series were sad to see that he wasn’t writing one of the Siege of Terra novels, so a novella by him is fantastic news!

Sons of the Selenar follows Graham’s Shattered Legions heroes, as seen in his Horus Heresy stories ‘Kryptos’, Angel Exterminatus and The Seventh Serpent, bringing them into the perils of the Siege on a hazardous mission that could change the fate of the galaxy. Check out the blurb for the story, fresh from Black Library:



Sons of the Selenar will be available first in a limited edition format in early 2020, with a wider release later in the year. Look out for more information about it, as well as other Siege of Terra stories, over the coming months – and at the Black Library Weekender in November.

This massive two-day event will be held in Nottingham’s Belfry Hotel on Saturday the 9th and Sunday the 10th of November. You’ll be able to meet loads of authors, artists and voice actors, attend seminars about all aspects of Black Library’s stories, grab amazing pre-release books and much more. Order your tickets from Eventbrite now. In the meantime, check out the Siege of Terra website for your introduction to the series, and pick up The Solar War now.




.. be shocjkd if this is the only tie-i release.
