Recently I've grown more and more intrigued about the 40k universe in general, and having heard very good things about the books, decided to pick one up and give them a try. The problem is, I have no idea of a good "starting point", that being a book which requires only a basic knowledge of the 40k universe (i.e. nothing that cannot be gleaned from 30mins. on the 40k Wiki), and is of good quality. I would really appreciate help on this issue, and am open to any and all suggestions.
