Absolutely right... The 40k universe is sooooo rich. Totally get that BL is primarily meant to promote the game and sell more figures AND that this is WARhammer 40k but GW are missing the fact that there are plenty of people who would willingly spend money on 40k related stuff (is novels and fluff books) but no longer play the game (me for one).

I spent a fortune on codexes, imperial armour books, Horus heresy forgeworld books, Fantasy Flight Games role playing source books, art books as well as novels. However, I have not played the game or purchased a toy soldier since the mid 90s!

As a more, ahem, mature fanboy I would welcome more mature novels like Eisenhorn (which got me back into the 40k universe after nearly a decade away). We need more "domestic 40k" away from the battlefield and front line.

Damn it what we need is for Abnett to get on with Penitent and for Sandy Mitchell to finish his Inquisitor trilogy!

When I originally read it in 2009. I've always got new stuff to read so I rarely, almost never in fact, re-read anything. I will, it's just that there's always more new stuff.

I would love to see the necromunda novels given a similar make over. See them re released to a new generation. And yes some new novels like the next bequin would be lovely!

I still have my old Omnibus which I may re-read.... Including Ravenor too. I should really pick up Bequin one too.

Don't get me started... Abnett needs to get this and the third one done. It's been two years since we should have had Penitent, what the hell happened?

Nice to see people on eBay already exploiting this and selling it for double the price now it's out of stock.

I don't recall reading anywhere that they would be numbered, and can't see anywhere that says that on the BL page. I'll be taking mine to the next even Abnett is at though to get them signed.
