The Dark King short story is where Curze snaps and turns his face from the Emperor.

From B&S... this is from BL's facebook page:

Thatís right guys,
A brand new series is coming!
One of things that we've been asked since the Horus Heresy began, is when you'll get to see more of the origin stories of the primarchs, and what they got up to during the Great Crusade.
Well this series answers those questions (some of them).
An 18-book series of novels that will feature each of the primarchs in an iconic story, whether that be the tale of their discovery by the Emperor, the saga of an ancient brotherly rivalry, or a chronicle of them leading their Legion to war at the apex of the Great Crusade.
Anyone want to take a guess as to which story each primarch will have?

My only guess would be the Lion's book will feature the story of the Lion and Russ' rivalry.

Mortarion's origin story would be fantastic... that's one of my favourites.

Angron - I would definitely like to know more about the Emperor's meeting with him and why he made the decisions he did regarding Angron.

Yeah, we already have that though. Doubt they would write about it again.

The brotherly rivalry clearly sounds like Rogal Dorn vs. Perturabo.

I still think the Iron Cage is the obvious story for Dorn.

My suspicion would be that Fulgrim's could be when the Emperor's discovers him. Not because it's particularly remarkable but because it then leads to him meeting his Legion of 300 and meeting Ferrus. That's such a formative part of the IIIrd legion background I would think that might be a good place for them to mine for literature.

My contribution to the Renegades saga. Check it out

My growing IIIrd legion stuff:

17th Millenial (Homebrew Fluff) - "Children of the Emperor, death to his foes!" (Project Log)

Also my 30k tacticas, for those of you interested:

Crusade Army List tactica - Individual Legion tactica

Well their rivalry is positively ancient by that point, so its still very much plausible to be the iron cage.

Extra sploosh? I question the necessity of the book, but I'm very happy with the author. If anything, I would like to see him add a bit more of the old space wolf humor to the character. Dour fucks do not the space wolves make.

Nah, I was almost completely indifferent to the Space Wolves until Prospero Burns, The Emperor's Gift and Battle of the Fang.

Abnett, ADB and Wraight wrote far more interesting Space Wolves/Vlka Fenryka, than anyone else, hated Kings.

To each their own. I will say that I do like the new wolves and I think those three authors added a lot of depth that Rout didn't have with King, but I also think the Rout lost a bit of humor and humanity that really set them apart from other marines. I don't want the wolves lose anything that they've gained. I just want Wright to add back in those little touches that set the wolves apart.
