*sigh* Wraight is one of my favourite BL writers, but (I know I'm beginning to sound like a scratched record) as a SW fan boy his apparent ignorance of long standing SW fluff really gets up my nose. Blood of Asaheim, while I can recognise it was a good book, was ruined for me because of this.

What did he botch up in Asaheim ?

Not a fan of the title Wolves of Fenris (extremely vague/cliched/boring) nor the cover. Looks like Megaman.

Wraight should branch out a bit! He did a great job with Scars, but he seems to just write about Space Wolves!

Sooooo it's nothing new? Just a compilation of stories that have already been written, just put into a book together? Getting sick of this shit. I want books, new books. No more short story shit (I HATE short stories). No more audio (really don't like the audio stuff).

Yeah his Wrath of Iron was dark and it was a good read. I've always felt (prior to Scars) that his forte should be the Iron Hands.

I don't think they have said whether or not it is anything new.
I would imagine it would have something new in it.
Though even if it is just shorts, I will be happy to get something in print, since most of what they do seems to be digital these days,

Well I have a Kindle so I don't mind digital. I do prefer an actual book in my hands, but I'll make do. I just really want them to quit stringing this along with shorts and instead of writting a full book.

A whole pile. He apparently doesn't know how a SW pack works, he's not too sure about how a WG or LF gets promoted, non rune priests are running around with rune blades, there's more, but I've already covered it elsewhere.

As for calling it Wolves of Fenris, I think he's taking the theme from Prospero Burns that they don't like being called Space Wolves. They see themselves as the Rout, or Vlka Fenryka. I think this might even lead to a similar name on their next codex.

This is a good point. Does anyone else think the output of fully fledged novels as opposed to piss ant short stories has really slowed down? There was a release a week not so long ago, now it feels like a month or more can go by without anything.
