Eisenhorn and Ravenor are what I go back to when I get burned out reading Hours Heresy that reads like a teen fiction novel. I've read both trilogies three times now, and I'll probably go back for a fourth!

Yeah I've read them both multiple times. Same for the Night Lords trilogy and Gaunts Ghosts

The delay to Penitent (and the Gaunts Ghosts books) has been hard for a fan like me. Damn I want my fix and know how these stories are going to pan out!

I too have read that someone spoke to Dan Abnett at the BL weekender last year and he said he was focused on delivering both GG books and the HH book Dreadwing as his next BL work.

However, on top of that he picked up the very lucrative work for Marvel (he is an author for hire after all) on Guardians of the Galaxy and this threw out all schedules.

Personally I think it is that plus the fact that some other BL authors are also getting success in other non BL franchises that has caused there to be a gap in new novels for HH being plugged with anthologies.

I speculate that the change in BL publishing formats for HH has potentially had an impact on volume sales which will mean smaller royalties for authors. Yes they earn more money from a hardback but if the only place to buy the hardback is direct from BL or GW then as an author your exposure will drop and you won't be scoring any more New York Times Best Sellers!

Anyway back on topic...personally I wish we could chain Abnett to a BL desk and only ever write the stories I want and love ggrrrrrrr

I think it's case of Dan being occupied with other projects.

Ohhh yeah, can't wait for that. I've actually enjoyed all Abnett's work in the HH so far. Unremembered Empire and all!

It's been that long that I need to reread it prior to any new release. That being said, if it's to spend time on Gaunt's novels then this is entirely ok. Looking forward to it clearing a lot of things up from the first novel.

Plus I've never written a book so take as long as you need to make a good novel please Mr Abnett.

I saw a Masters of the Universe collection at B&N last night. I don't remember who the general idea was by, but the scripting was done by Abnett. I was like, "He-Man is the reason we don't have Penitent?!?!??" Lol
