I believe they upped the threshold to $60 USD.

I believe so.
I ordered from them like 2 weeks ago, and $50 was free shipping.

I'm a quarter of the way through Vengeful Spirit, and I'll echo what Brother Lucian said. It's a fun read thus far, and my only real complaint is along the same lines as my typical complaints of unnecessarily anachronistic stuff creeping into the warfare sections.

Bottom line, this far into the book, I think Graham did a largely great job with Horus. It's a bit jarring for Horus to be acting largely like he did in Horus Rising (though obviously more ruthless) while also condoning horrific rituals and practices within his flagship. Similarly, the Mournival - and Little Horus Aximand especially - are handled very well... with the exception of Abaddon being largely relegated in the background (Grael Noctua and Falkus the Widowmaker both get more lines and more insight).

Roughly a quarter of the way through as well. Agree with the points you made, few other things I've like so far in addition to what you mentioned. Spoilers for up to Chapter Nine.

Ah also it seems my long time prediction of the Lion being the help from 'An unexpected quarter' that saved Russ and his Legion from the Alpha Legion attack was spot on. From the fact that Russ only mentions it as a brief passing note, I'm guessing that it will be further elaborated on in another novel or short. Appears to have happened before the Lion departed for Ultramar however.

Man, you and I have been calling the Lion saving Russ for, what? 3-4 years now? Longer maybe?

That face….. that price tag. I've had course books that cost less than that. Not many, mind you, but I've had them. That being said, this looks fucking epic.

The Website kept telling me that my profile was only 80% complete without creating a signature. Ain't no website going to tell me I was a lazy shit, no sir.

Must be about that. I feel suitably smug about ourselves.

McNeill has confirmed a bit about what he is working on now. At the moment he is writing a HH short story about Tybalt "The Either" Marr after the Drop Site Massacre, and another story featuring the crew of the Sisypheum set after Angel Exterminatus. Both sound interesting, the former more so as I did wonder what would become of Marr after the death of Verulam Moy, and the latter could be good as I would like to see Sharrowkyn and Frater Thamatica again.
