I'm beyond certain that he is. Have you not read all his notes about it, or the foreword and such. You can tell that he's very excited about the prospect of a long series, his Gaunts Ghosts, and you really tell the tale of Abaddon and rid the Failbaddon image.

yeah sure I did, but as people evolve perspectives and priorities change, as ADB might be doing other (non-BL) projects, I can imagine books get delayed. In all honesty I can imagine him looking for other/new challenges, I mean he has proven that he can write best of the class BL books, he knows that recipe and although still fun to do it becomes less challenging (that would be my reasoning), he might want to explore his potential in different genres (I'd read them)?

If you follow his facebook, read his blogs, read his forewords etc. then I could almost guarantee you that he is in for the long haul in the 40k universe in general.

Yeah, I wouldn't worry about ADB. Dan Abnett on the other hand...

I think the point was about ADB writing the Black Legion series, bud.

Lets hope they do. However, that could explain why I haven't found any info on it from any other source than ADB.
When it comes to ADB writing about Chaos, you can be assured BL will pick it up.

BL is crap when it comes to announcing their own products. Amazon is announcing them months before BL has even gotten their head out of their behinds. Heck sometimes they are just there on the web-site with no announcement what's so ever.

I fully agree, but I can see his letters/year towards BL reducing

I don't know about "evolving as a person" and all that...but if BL doesn't respect its authours, it will lose them

For you who missed it, it appears that ADB will be writing Master of Mankind (or has been secretly working on it for 6 months) before Black Legion.

He's been working on it for longer than that, and not so secretly either. He mentioned it a couple of years ago at least.
