It's just a assumption - but it's based on facts:

- Warmaster (cover -synopsis) and Penitent (only title with blank page) are now officially gone from all Book stores sites - amazon/ barnes&nobles, waterstones etc. etc.

- Dan Abnett on his twitter said that were would be some important info - announcement soon

- 4 comic projects and GOTG book for him to write till autumn

That's it - no more Gaunt, no more Inquisitor :(

EDIT: Title changed to reflect speculation.

This is from the link @dark angel posted

A Ghost Return
Gaunt’s Ghosts is one of the most enduringly popular series Black Library has ever released. A Ghost Return is set before the events of the Founding, and sees our hero, Commissar Ibram Gaunt, on the search of an ancient shrine beneath the ruins of a hive city. If you’re a fan of the Gaunt’s Ghosts series, this should make the wait for the next novel just that little bit more bearable.

I caught up with Dan to find out what we can look forward to from the next book.

DAN: After some unavoidable delays, The Warmaster (Gaunt book 14) is now thundering along again. What can you expect? Well, it's the direct sequel to Salvation's Reach, and follows Gaunt and his Ghosts as they return from that raid - to be plunged into utter mayhem on the hive world Urdesh, where Warmaster Macaroth himself is leading the Imperial Crusade forces against the Anarch's hosts. Massive, massive battlefield action... The tide of the Sabbat Worlds Crusade may be about to turn in the most dramatic way.

But will Macaroth, and our heroes, survive the onslaught of Urdesh long enough to see it? And what sinister games are being played out behind the scenes? All of that, and maybe the return of some old faces too!

This isn't:

Straight from the horses* mouth, he's still writing for BL. Nice try though.

* Let it be known that I do not think Dan Abnett is a horse. And if he is... well he is the most talented horse ever to walk this earth and should be held up as the great ever writer to put pen to paper, simply because of the fact we are then talking about a horse that can write and also a horse that has managed to fool everybody into thinking he is a human.

That's a very old story from anthology for one of the BL events
Which would that be?

Last I knew, the only Gaunt's Ghosts shorts out there were The Iron Star and Of Their Lives in the Ruins of Their Cities.

don't be rude man, i don't mean what you wrote. In a week time he could have burned his contract with BL. It's not about that he is busy - it's that he doesn't want to write HH-40K anymore

Despite all evidence to the contrary? Are you being deliberately obtuse?

Actually look at the link DA posted and Jacobite quoted. Look at the timestamp. 17th of March. He still is, and still intends to write for the Black Library.

So some of his books got delayed, so what? There could be all manner of personal reasons we're not privy to. Jumping to the conclusion that Abnett's up and quit writing for the Black Library is foolish.

If Dan has quit writing for the Black Library we'd know about it outright. Futhermore the Black Library is a steady paycheck for him and I don't see that changing anytime soon. He seems to enjoy doing it and has a lot of ideas so why would he stop?

Dan Abnett confirmed to be Chicken Boo?

Jesus H. Christ. When I first saw the title I thought that this was confirmed, and not just inane speculation. Not sure what to say that wouldn't get me banned.

He's not allowed to finish until he completed his last inquisition trilogy.

If he tries to escape I will go all Liam Neeson on his arse!

This was all discussed in one of your previous threads. You asked a similar question, pretty much raging about why he wasn't trotting out a book a week. You were informed he had a relapse of his illness and all deadlines had been pushed back. It would be logical to assume that still holds true, instead of repeating the thread.
