Plot details for all the books bar Eye of Terra have been released;

But, four years later, the Legionís unfettered spirit has been broken by relentless attritional warfare against the Death Guard and the Emperorís Children Ė the Khanís Stormseers must find a clear route to Terra if they are to take part in the final, apocalyptic battle.

The future of the Imperium is being shaped by unseen hands... This Horus Heresy anthology contains fourteen stories by some of Black Library's top authors, including James Swallow, Chris Wraight, Anthony Reynolds and many more.

With the Dark Angels spread across a hundred systems, primarch Lion ElíJonson stands as Lord Protector of Ultramar Ė though his true motives are known to few indeed, and old rivalries on the home world threaten to tear the Legion in half. But when word comes of the Night Lordsí attack on Sotha, the Lionís brutal actions bring Imperium Secundus once again to the brink of civil war. Not even the most fearsome warriors of the Dreadwing, nor any arcane secret of the Order, can guarantee victory if he sets himself against his loyal brothers.
Can't 100% confirm but sources say that after Angels of Caliban the next novel, number 39 in the series, will be Praetorian of Dorn by John French, due for a 2016 hardback release and a January 2017 paperback release, and is about the Imperial Fists fighting the Alpha Legion in the Ghost War for the Sol System.

He's one of my favourite and most admired front cover artists ever, so seeing his work lose a certain emotional quality to them is saddening. His pieces also lack a certain sense of gripping intensity, scale and movement - they look sort of 'wooden' and (in comparison) forgettable.

We have a proper fronct-cover with the sub-title for the novel Angels of Caliban.

Couldn't agree more. I know he can deliver fantasctic cover-art that truly depicts that something is alive and real. This looks way too cartoonish, something that is a recurring problem with their frontcovers.

Andrew W K?




Chris Hemsworth?

I'm saying Hemsworth would make a damn good Russ, but he might be too damn pretty a dude for either.
