Its been awfully slow. And I hope Dan stays in good health, it seemed like he was going through a few rough years.

What happened to McNeill?

Your sources are muchos shaky, dude. While everyone's free to write about whatever primarch they want, I don't think Graham's finished with Fulgrim. They've also brought in new authors several times in the last few years (Chris Wraight, Rob Sanders, John French, David Annandale, etc. two of whom now have HH novels released) to cover for the slowness and to give new folks a chance. And Dan had a rough few months three or four years ago, and has been fine since. He's focused on Marvel novels and video games lately, rather than BL, but last time I spoke to him (a few weeks back) he was tapping away on Gaunt's Ghosts again.

He went south... Its quite curious how Abnett and ADB are my favorite and probably the favorite of the authors from the series. I remember ADB mentioning how their approach to the Heresy's were quite opposite. It works well though.

If Dan is spending more time with other works, would it be fair to say that ADB, McNeill and Thorpe are really the Heresy team for now?

Agreed ADB.i think all bl authors are fantastic in there own ways. It's sad dan isn't focusing on the heresy ;) as for you... We'll I have some words for you. AFTER READING BETRAYER I JUST HAD TO SPEND MY HARD EARNED MONEY ON MORE FORGEWORLD MODELS BECAUSE I JUST ABSOLUTLY LOVED THE ULTRAMARINES IN IT. Thanks you very much destroyer of wallets.

The proper cover has been released as well;

Let the Galaxy Burn feels appropriate to a villains-only anthology.

Naw, the team is huge now. It's never been bigger. Rob Sanders is doing stuff, David Annandale just did Pythos, Chris Wraight's doing stuff, etc. etc.

I can see the appeal of doing other things, too. I've got a few more stories I want to tell in the HH over the next couple of years, then I'm considering taking a break from it for a while, as well.

While an Eldar, or Navigator as I recall it, love story would be cool, frankly i'm much more curious about this; (Specifically what it is.)

- Aaron, no grievance intended - but i haven't read a HH full novel from last November (novellas and limited doesn't count). Damnation of Pythos was already read upon HH weekender - and now i can't see a HH full novel in the near future at all. So, I can't say, that we do feel huge team efforts on HH front :(

Because, what i see again for HH - are limited editions and anthologies (let be realistic - what is 'Legacies of Betrayal' if not an anthology of short stories?). Please don't take that personally. It's just seems, well - as it is.

- different people, different opinions. I agree with you on Betrayer - but Dan's Unremembered Empire for me was the worst book in the Heresy so far. But i adorn his Inquisitor and Gaunt Ghosts series

That was written on a day when I was trying to kickstart my brain; it's a mishmash of a bunch of ideas I was having at the time. Some of it has gone into the fantasy novel I'm writing in my rare and precious free time, while one of the names (No Foes Remain) has gone into something 40K-related to (I think) be released later this year.
