dont know how many more of these space marine battle novels i can take. everyone looks to be about orks. now i thought that rynns world was really well written even though the ending was very rushed but helsreach only just picked up at the end.
i know the next one has daemons in it bu then this 4th one reverts back to orks again and im not all that interested in them again. hell you dont even get any orkishness in the first 2 so was kinda boring. why do them again?

It looks like a lot of great books coming in the next year or so, but I'm with you all I can't wait that long for another HH novel. I'm really itching for some more Garro.:victory:

The one I am looking forward to is, "Age of Darkness" but only if it picks up were Galaxy in Flames left off. That and, "Nemesis" sounds interesting too. The rest I can do without.

As for audio books. They are a joke. I want to read a book, not listen to someone else read it to me with sound effects and stupid shit going on in the background. That's like watching a movie with a blindfold on, just pointless.

I certainly agree with Audio-books. Frankly, the Voice-acting is pathetic (bordering upon loathsome), and the sound-effects dire; I swear, with several of my vital-organs bleached in Strongbow, a nice splif, and some mates in a shed, I could produce better.... That said, the Narrator, isn`t bad... Toby Longsworth the choicest out of them, with the Narrator of Throne of Lies rather soft and anti-climatical...

Age of Darkness
simply cannot pick up where Galaxy in Flames left off. I am sure I mentioned this before. Galaxy in Flames details Isstvan III, and the latter book, Fulgrim details Isstvan V (amongst a plethora of other things) so it must continue after the Dropsite Massacre. I`m pretty sure Tales of Heresy, for the majority, has Post-Isstvan III stories... The Voice, Blood Games chief among these...

Vote yes for audio books.:victory:
If they did bring them out in written form they would only be very short storys that you could read in half an hour.Its also a lot easyier to listen to an audio book and drive a car at the same time.:)

Yeah, all true, but charging 50% more than the price of a novel for a 70 minute story is, even for GW, taking the piss. Considering it costs a ridiculous 59 pence in the UK to print a CD, they could at least just charge the price of a standard novel. They are an absolute rip off, and I for one won't be buying any more.

I'm definitely in the NO camp when it comes to audio books, I want to read it not have it "hammed" at me by some Brian Blessed wannabe.
I listened to the clip on the BL website, something to do with Salamanders I think, lost interest after the first 3 seconds. It was dire, and they think it's worth showing off about?
And £10 a pop, are people really stupid enough to by a CD of maybe 70 pages worth of text for more than the price of a 500 page paper back?
