Good list, I'd also throw in the Turkey City Lexicon as an excellent resource to check out.

Just figured that I'd bump this for the upcoming Black Library Submissions Window. Sorry about bringing this back, just figured it might be useful. Might update it with some links later.

IMHO, this is a really valuable resource to have, because it gives ideas about more professional/crafting take on writing. Many thanks for sharing this.

Urgently trying to trace any living relatives of Private Sam/Samuel "Jock" Wilson (Black Watch, No. 6 Commando, UK Army Service ID 2764432, died 10.06.44). Any info/suggestions gratefully received.

Please check out the HOES (Heresy Online Stories) threads and vote for the tales.
More feedback = better stories for everyone.
