Default Is Dan Abnett is not writing for BL anymore?

It's just a assumption - but it's based on facts:

- Warmaster (cover -synopsis) and Penitent (only title with blank page) are now officially gone from all Book stores sites - amazon/ barnes&nobles, waterstones etc. etc.

- Dan Abnett on his twitter said that were would be some important info - announcement soon

- 4 comic projects and GOTG book for him to write till autumn

That's it - no more Gaunt, no more Inquisitor

EDIT: Title changed to reflect speculation.

Yeah, you're completely wrong.

They just released a new Gaunt's Ghosts story.

http://www.blacklibrary.com/new-at-bl/Quick-Reads.html

Nyctophobia- Fear of the Dark Angel.

"No one ever spoke about of those two absent brothers. Their separate tragedies had seemed like aberrations. Had they, in fact, been warnings that no one had heeded?"

'Killing a man is like fucking, boy, only instead of giving life you take it. You experience the ecstasy of penetration as your warhead enters the enemy's belly and the shaft follows. You see the whites of his eyes roll inside the sockets of his helmet. You feel his knees give way beneath him and the weight of his faltering flesh draw down the point of your spear. Are you picturing this?'
'Yes, lord.'
'Is your dick hard yet?'
'No, lord.'
''What? You've got your spear in a man's guts and your dog isn't stiff? What are you, a woman?'

It was my opinion - general search doesn't show the results for books.

This is from the link @dark angel posted

A Ghost Return
Gaunt’s Ghosts is one of the most enduringly popular series Black Library has ever released. A Ghost Return is set before the events of the Founding, and sees our hero, Commissar Ibram Gaunt, on the search of an ancient shrine beneath the ruins of a hive city. If you’re a fan of the Gaunt’s Ghosts series, this should make the wait for the next novel just that little bit more bearable.

I caught up with Dan to find out what we can look forward to from the next book.

DAN: After some unavoidable delays, The Warmaster (Gaunt book 14) is now thundering along again. What can you expect? Well, it's the direct sequel to Salvation's Reach, and follows Gaunt and his Ghosts as they return from that raid - to be plunged into utter mayhem on the hive world Urdesh, where Warmaster Macaroth himself is leading the Imperial Crusade forces against the Anarch's hosts. Massive, massive battlefield action... The tide of the Sabbat Worlds Crusade may be about to turn in the most dramatic way.

But will Macaroth, and our heroes, survive the onslaught of Urdesh long enough to see it? And what sinister games are being played out behind the scenes? All of that, and maybe the return of some old faces too!

This isn't:

"DAN: After some unavoidable delays, The Warmaster (Gaunt book 14) is now thundering along again. What can you expect?

Straight from the horses* mouth, he's still writing for BL. Nice try though.

* Let it be known that I do not think Dan Abnett is a horse. And if he is... well he is the most talented horse ever to walk this earth and should be held up as the great ever writer to put pen to paper, simply because of the fact we are then talking about a horse that can write and also a horse that has managed to fool everybody into thinking he is a human.

Which would that be?

Last I knew, the only Gaunt's Ghosts shorts out there were The Iron Star and Of Their Lives in the Ruins of Their Cities.

don't be rude man, i don't mean what you wrote. In a week time he could have burned his contract with BL. It's not about that he is busy - it's that he doesn't want to write HH-40K anymore

Despite all evidence to the contrary? Are you being deliberately obtuse?

Actually look at the link DA posted and Jacobite quoted. Look at the timestamp. 17th of March. He still is, and still intends to write for the Black Library.

So some of his books got delayed, so what? There could be all manner of personal reasons we're not privy to. Jumping to the conclusion that Abnett's up and quit writing for the Black Library is foolish.
