Scars will be out before Vengeful Spirit. Scars is listed as book 28 in Unremembered Empire

So Swallow's going to handle the Death Guard's fall and McNeil gets to return the spotlight to Horus. Not exactly pleased to hear that.

They're such inconsistent authors. McNeill's had some hits but works best i feel when not writing about Space Marines. Swallow's only done rubbish except Flight of the Eisenstien.

I hope they've been paying attention to how Abnett and Aaron have writing Space Marines as more than just oversized humans but as fundamentally transhuman. Its nice to see those 2 along with Cris Wraight building a cohesive world. I've noticed those three have been building and developing a coherent perspective of 40k.

I'd like to see the recent consistency continued.

Well considering this interview with McNeill says he is still working on VS, I doubt we'll be seeing it this year. And since Mal is right and Scars is listed as Book 28 in the list and is actually finished, I rather think it will be next. That's based on the facts we see, not one posters claim.

Some info on Vengeful Spirit from this interview for those interested.

We’ve spent a lot of time figuring out what the major characters have been doing, and it’s about time to remind the readers why it’s his name on the series title. The book will bring him front and centre to the Heresy and remind the readers just how terrifying The Sons of Horus are when they make war.
Does sound good, I especially like the idea of seeing the Sons of Horus again and how terrifying they can be in battle.

Lordi, just for you to know - complete Vengeful spirit novel right now running it's second editorial circle already at BL. McNeil has completed it more than 3 weeks ago. You could ask him yourself - your info is little outdated. I will never believe that BL would be running editorial circles on the novel for more then 6 months

The interview that I quoted was written on the 10th, even allowing for it to have been written a week or two before it was posted, there is no way that a book will go through drafts, editing and processing in a few weeks. And how exactly would I ask McNeill for this info? I don't know him nor have I ever communicated with him in any way.

Considering that you have no proof whatsoever of your claims, i'll stick with what I can see in front of me. An interview dated on the 10th where McNeill says he is still working on Vengeful Spirit.

From My facebook:
"I cant seem to find anything regarding Vengeful spirit. Do you have any word of a release date, or even what the cover looks like? This is one of my most anticipated"
https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-F...556?ref=stream - The Fortress of Hera I can't say. Because I don't know. Just had a look at the cover brief (Ace) and it's with the editors, so...sometime soon(ish).

Another one -
Vengeful spirit anytime soon?????
https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-F...556?ref=stream - The Fortress of Hera It's been with the editors a couple of weeks, so I expect we'll go through their feedback soon...
And this was September 26
So yeah, i'm pretty sure - and i could always show you proof for my claims

Why did you not post that first?? Give proof rather than just saying something and expecting everyone else to accept it without proof.

Still though, Scars will be next. It's edited and finished, since it is being released as an ebook first, so I expect Scars will be released fully by December and Vengeful Spirit will be either Book 29 or 30 at the latest.

I'm pretty certain Anakwanar is related to Black Library somehow.

Remember that interview with a BL editor earlier this year? There were far too many coincidences between it and his posting style/content for this to be chance.
