1) I don't particularly care if you don't particularly care if I dislike BL's most popular author, though thanks for sharing
2) Dan Abnett's novels are basically all the same. I wouldn't be surprised if they were all based on a template - all he needs to do is kill off almost every character, in every novel he writes, and he has another book for little geeks to froth at the mouth over.
You never know; he has already basically plagiarised the entire series of Sharpe novels in the Gaunt's Ghosts series - he may aswell find a few more popular war stories to mimic.
All of this has happened before.
