|Khyzer||Any idea on the price of the anthology? Is it strictly event exclusive? The price for each of these individual 1k word stories is to high to warrant me buying any of the so far. Not to mention they are in that dreaded ebook format (cant stand that shit). But the idea of an actual physical book is much more enticing. In the blog they only mention it being "first" available at Games Day, wonder if that means eventually it will be up one the site. God please... anything to keep me away from those money hungry fucks on eBay.|

So with today's blog announcement we know that all of these short stories will be available in one anthology at Games Day. Angels of Death. And it will contain the following Chapters;
Angels Penitent/Angels Resplendent
Scythes of the Emperor*
Two more Chapters remain to be revealed, Friday and Saturday's short stories. And three unique stories* that will not be ebooks have been confirmed, the first of which features the Scythes of the Emperor and the second of which features the Blood Drinkers. Without a doubt this is the most varied anthology that BL have ever done, there are at least seven Chapters here that have never been written about before and two of them were just names in the Loyalist Chapter List prior to these stories. BL need to do these kinds of anthologies more often.

The serialisation I'm less convinced by and I'd rather wait for the whole thing, and the limited edition novellas are becoming a joke considering their regularity and shall we say, dubious quality of writing.

I am going off of Amazon, who is not ALWAYS correct with their release info, as well as(in all of my experience) stuff usually comes out on BLs site roughly a month early, or so. So that would put those releases at 5-6 months or so? As well as if they have any event or are at any event, they will likely have that stuff early, and since you seem to get everything a decent bit early, they are still relatively "soon".
Dan does write A LOT of stuff, so I can definitely see why they would want to push it back.
What 4 anthologies and what 4 limited editions?
I only know of "There is Only War" as an upcoming anthology.
And as far as limited editions, the Gamesday short story anthology and Tallarn. What other ones are there?
I somehow doubt you know the exact number of short stories coming out in the next 5 months. Is that just a guesstamite seeing as how they have 1 a week, plus the rest of those leading up to the weekender?
I honestly don't see most reprints as a bad idea(I don't see the point in the "Classics" range, as you can get the omnibus for the same price), but I got into BL in 2011 or so, so the reprints can be a blessing for some of the newer fans.
Plus, BL likes to withhold info until the last minute, so they may well release some good stuff at random.

To The Scion of Chemos
Talon of Horus; Stormcaller; Wolf of Sigmar, Master of Death - will not be released in 5 months period
And new news - Warmaster (Gaunt Ghosts) was postponed till July 2014 - Dan has too many projects and simply can't write faster.
And in the next 5 months we will have 4 anthologies, 4 Limited (OMG) , 67 SHORT STORIES, 10 reprints
Now go figured - how is that better when last years

I mean, most of what you had to say was opinion, but they have more than that coming out in the next 5 months.
UE, Scars, New G&F, Talon of Horus, Path of the Archon, Visions of Heresy(kind of a reprint, but it is being "revised" so I would consider it different from the original collected visions), Stormcaller, Wolf of Sigmar, Master of Death, There is Only War(anthology, though IDK how much of it will be reprinted), Malodrax, Bane of Malekith. And that is just stuff that they have announced/is on amazon. I would not doubt at all that they will have more stuff.

Interesting idea to do this, but right now, i don't like where BL is going.
Serial novels (with the omg prices for episode); 1 thousand words shorts (with the omg prices for each); Limited editions novellas(with the omg prices - and OMG + delivery); anthologies (here prices are ok - but the last 2 anthologies were shit); reprints and etc.
With each passing month it's less and less normal (with ok price) novels.
Look at the next 5 months - only 5 novels (that are not old or could be read at all): Unremembered empire; MASTER OF DRAGONS; Warmaster; SMB novel about Iron Snakes in the Sabbat Worlds crusade and Vengeful spirit.
Everything else - exclusive LE, anthologies, anthologies, reprints, (BLACK LIBRARY CLASSICS)
It's very sad
