The HH novels have thrown up a few gaffs in their time some are minor enough yet some are fairly significant. Lets list them. Any explanations other than "BL f'd up" are welcome.

1. First one that springs to mind is the whereabouts of Valdor. In the short story Blood Games as well as Nemesis he's on Terra yet in both Horus' betrayal is known so the Wolves must already have been dispatched to Prospero yet in A Thousand Sons Valdor is right there on Prospero with the Wolves.

2. Dorn knows, meets, respects and even nominates Loken to the Mournival in Horus Rising yet doesn't know him in Flight of the Eisenstein or at very least must rely on Sigismund's character reference.

3. In Blood Games, The Lightning Tower and Nemesis the Emperor makes an appearance in person for seemingly trivial matters, for all intents and purposes he's basically just wandering around the palace eavesdropping and sneaking up on people. Yet, again, Horus's betrayal is known. This means that Magnus must have sent his message already so by this point daemons are pouring into the dungeons and the Emperor SHOULD be on his thrown keeping them out but he's not.

4. This one's more of an unlikely/foolish choice by Dorn in desperate times than an actual plot hole. In the Dark King Curze has been summoned to account for his ways he attacks Dorn, Kills loyal SM's then he makes off and destroys a "loyal" planet of the Imperium, Nostramo. Dorn had described this as "Long ago" yet after all of this Curze was not brought to heel. Then despite this he is seen as trustworthy enough to be sent as one of the punitive legions to confront Horus at Istvaan as seen in Fulgrim. Desperate times true but Dorn had sent what he thought to be 7 loyal legions to combat 3 known traitors surely 6 would have been enough especially with the doubt over the Night Lords.

Any others?

yes but when they are being interrogated by sigismund and dorn loken is mentioned. Dorn then asks for sigismunds opinion who says something like "i met him, stalwart cthonian" despite the fact that dorn was actually there when sigismund met loken and talked with him for longer than sigismund did.
