Default The Heretic is Here

well, ladies and gents, the first issue of Heresy-Online's first ever Fan-Fiction and Art ezine, The Heretic has finally arrived. We've got a heap load of good stories for you and some very very nice artwork. For those of you who are interested in checking out Heresy-Online's newest feature to the site, please have a download. it's a free, digital publication directed by me, Commissar Ploss and done in partnership with book review and fiction news website.

Just follow this link to download the first issue from Google Documents:

The Heretic Vol 1 Issue 1

Google Docs is just a temporary link, eventually we should have it available for download directly from Heresy-Online. There will also be a forum section added to Heresy for the express purpose of discussing past, present and future Issues.

A seasonal release schedule has been determined for The Heretic. With Issue #2 coming out in Early Summer 2011. You can even download this publication and read it on your Kindle, Nook or other applicable electronic reading device.

Submission guidelines have also been changed so pay attention:

Completed story submissions will now be taken all the time. Just send a copy of your completed story in .rtf format to (if you don't know what .rtf format is, then you probably shouldn't send the story ). All the stories will go into a continuous pool where each release, we will choose six stories (one featured story, and five regular) to appear in The Heretic. Their respective authors will be notified of their selection and the stories will receive a professional edit and the be published.

Be sure to include your full name, and email address where we can contact you about your story should any questions, or the fact that you've been selected, arise. Failing to provide these two simple things will keep you from being selected in the future.

Each selected story will get a professional edit, and by submitting your stories to The Heretic, you disclose full rights to the story to the project staff, for the purposes of editing the manuscript and subsequently publishing it. Your stories will not be sold to anyone, ever. Your personal information will never be given out against your will, nor will we sell it to anyone. that's just a dick move...

as a final note, this publication "The Heretic" is completely unofficial and in no way endorsed by Games Workshop Limited. No challenge to their status intended. It is a publication by the fans, for the fans. That is all.

"There is no peace amongst fan-fiction writers, only cold coffee and carpal tunnel, and the laughter of dried out pens."


Have some well-deserved +rep!

The fool, the coward, and the ignorant proclaim that the warp is a realm of unknowable peril and indescribable terror, that it is the hell of countless ancient myths and legends. This is a lie, told by those whose authority is based on lies, to keep the masses terrified of the unknown. The warp is limitless power and its secrets are infinite; it is knowledge and strength, life and death, and the untapped potential to make and remake worlds. It takes only the discipline and the will to shape it; those who lack that clarity of purpose are liable to be shaped by it instead.

Just read through it, very nice!

The only thing that was a bit off to me was the plain white background; methinks a background matching that of Heresy itself would be ace

Nice work! Maybe I'll get off my ass and actually write something for it this time!

And what shoulder, & what art. Could twist the sinews of thy heart?
And when thy heart began to beat, What dread hand? & what dread feet?
What the hammer? what the chain? In what furnace was thy brain?
What the anvil? what dread grasp, Dare its deadly terrors clasp?
When the stars threw down their spears, And watered heaven with their tears,
Did he smile his work to see? Did he who made the Lamb make thee?

I knew nothing of this coming through the pipe line, but mate, I have been waiting for something like this for ages. About time we had something more inspirational than White Dwarf to make us pick up the model knife, the paint brush and the dice.

I hope this publication has a long future!

Awesome. I'm disappointed I couldn't get a story in for Issue 1, but I'm glad that you'll be accepting submissions any time. Less pressure!
