Damocles short stories are pretty good. There's also Fire Warrior, which is amusing, at least. It's the novelization of that game that came out.

Ive read only one novel with Tau in it, and i believe it was fifth? of Grahams Ultramarine series. Cant recommend that book at all.

Avoid Damocles as long as possible - only Guy Haley's story are good. Ultramarines 'Courage and Honour' 5th book is about tau - but do avoid that to. Roninman is correct on that one.

The only good Tau/Imperial guard novel is a 'Firecaste' by Peter F.
