Have they stopped bringing out Hammer & Bolter, I just looked on the site and can't see any new editions.
They are trying out new authors with the Digital Monday stories, and getting $3USD for 25-30 page shorts. As opposed to a lot more content for a little more money, that H&B offered. I'm not going into one of the old "Black Library greed" rants, but hey, money talks. Loud.Its a shame it gave them the oppurtunity to try out new authors, it couldn't have cost a lot to produce, I for one will miss it.
Yes they cancelled H&B, they are compiling them in those GIANT anthologies of short stories.Have they stopped bringing out Hammer & Bolter, I just looked on the site and can't see any new editions.
They did announce it on the blog and facebook page some time ago.There was no announcement that I saw, but they haven't brought out a new edition in a long time, just the compilations.
Digital mondays have replaced hammer and bolter, apparently, everyone wanted just the stories out of H&B, so that is what they did, only on a weekly schedule instead of monthly. I would be surprised if they didn't compile these into yearly anthologies as well(Though it would seem that some of the digital mondays releases are actually re-releases from older/LE short story anthologies such as the Games Day Anthology)I guess the short story focus is more on the Digital Monday offerings now. Hammer and Bolter was fun while it lasted, but these weekly shorts are pretty nice too.
