Default Black LIbrary Publications and the Raven Guard

Hi,

I'm fairly new to the 40K universe and as such my best approach thus far (suggestions welcome) to "getting up to speed" regarding the fluff of the game has been reading various publications put out by the Black Library. I'ved played a bit with a small Tau army I started but would really like to create a space marine army. Of particular interest are the Raven Guard, however I have not read very much about them and was hoping that someone might know of a particular book in the series that gave more insight into this chapter.

I'm also curious to know authors that people favor. Currently Dan Abnett for me is by far one of the best writters I've come across in any collection, just my two sence. Thanks in advance.

Horus Heresy is good to get an understanding of the universe but i dunno if there is anything on the Raven guard. the best u could get on it is wikipedia, or ask somebody on this site. and yes Dan Abnett is very good

Until today there is no Raven Guard book from BL.It is rumored that every Legion
gets something.The actual fluff is rather short.
You may also look at Index Astartes articles or WD December 2002.

One source for Raven Guard may be http://www.lexicanum.de/
Great site with 40k info in german,english,french.
Another option: http://www.sonsofcorax.freeforums.org/

Try Index Astartes IV I think it had a bunch of on the raven guardjust a compendium of articles but an easy place to find them all.
