I've been enjoying a shift to the WHF-verse (for a variety of reasons, including writey-based ones) and frequently think that it's a real shame more isn't made of some of the WHF titles. Because they're really, really good. (ANYTHING by Chris Wraight, for example, the Nagash series...)
Not to mention Nathan's Ulrika series! which is fucking brilliant!!!

lange72 My first Warhammer novel was Konrad, waaaaay back too long ago. I don't know if the GW novels were BL at the time, but that was my first novel of GW IP. I didn't get a proper BL book until Space Wolf was released.

William Siegfried First BL book I read was Horus Rising, which is part of the Horus Heresy series. I started reading it shortly after I finished my first small Space Marine Company lol.

Chaosveteran The first BL book I purchased was "Into the Maelstrom" - a collection of short stories, if I remember correct.

This was so time ago...I can't even find it on the BL website (before they used to have an 'out of stock' tab...now I can't find it)

shame... One of the best BL books i've read was The First Heretic. It was NYT bestseller for a reason.

i would suggest you rethink your alienation of the series. just a suggestion, because i think you would really like it.
