Graham McNeils work reminds me a bit of an african diamond mine worker having a shit. A lot of it is brown dribbly smelly stuff you rather don't want to go rooting around in, but you know you "must" so as not to miss out anything, but once a while, you do come across a gem. And then having been caught, he produces his brown dribbly smelly stuff.
Darius Hinks is another. His Sigvald was pretty unreadable, his characters and plots are convoluted and twisting, when they a) shouldn't be and b) aren't written that well. His Orion was one of the worst books in Fantasy so far; about the quality of the Knights of the White Wolf novel. I haven't read his Empire books, and I don't want to - this isn't 40k where I fear I am missing out on storylines (I REALLY didn't want to get Angel Exterminatus especially after athe Outcast Dead, but due to the title, I feel I am "forced" to).
Nick Kyme; Salamanders, and now Dwarfs. He has ruined both. I picked up his Great Betrayal, and the two he standalones he did in the dwarf "trilogy"; they wrre terrible; Gav Thorpe's scaling can be a bit off kilter, but I have got less than 50 pages in, and I am reading about 20000 Dragons in a single battle, and then got to the Dwarfs finding Skaven 200 years before they were even made, let alone discovered by the Dwarfs. The guy should't be given a pad and pen lest he actually starts writing anything down. Let us not get started on Salamanders; we'll be here all day talking about Firey Fire Marines of Firey Doom; so much so that the wolfy Space Wolves of wolfiness with wolfy mcwolfywolfington seem appropriately and tastefully named.
Winners? ADB (Prince of Crows, TFH), Abnett (Double Eagle, Know No Fear, Legion, Guns of Tanith, although the later novels are tired and running out of ideas now that Bernard Cornwell has stopped writing Sharpe), CL Werner (Wulfrik, The Red Duke), Mike Lee (Nagash, although I will overlook his failure to properly mutilate the Druchii), Gav Thorpe (Odd as it is, I do enjoy his Books; Angels of Darkness, The Lion, excluding senseless death of Nemiel, Caledor and Deliverance Lost. I am a bit disappointed he never makes a "revelation" storyline, like Legion, or breaks the mould in anyway, like Prince of Crows. It is still so much better than someone who writes generic scifi and slaps a HH label on to get it sold), and the guy who made Florin D'Artaud, sadly I cannot remember his name for the life of me. Oh, and Gordon Rennie (Gothic War, Zavant, hell yeah), and Brian... Craig? (Orfeo, the guy who did Plague Daemon). For the oldies still out there.
