Do I have to read the whole HH series in order? I mean, I've read the first four books and they don't have Fulgrim anywhere near me, so I'm thinking of moving on to the next one.

Or I could buy Fulgrim online. But basically, my quesiton is, do you have to read the HH novels in order?

Thoughts would be appricated.

1. Horus Rising.
2. False Gods.
3. Galaxy in Flames.
4. Flight of the Eisenstein.
5. Fulgrim.

I would advise reading in order.

6. Descent of Angels
11. Fallen Angels

Same with these two.

Aside from those two blocs, anything goes. Although I would simply advise reading them in order of publication, you can't go wrong then. And as for buying Fulgrim online, I think you'll find its much cheaper to buy off sites like Amazon or Play (free postage aswell) rather than buying off from the High Street. :)

A related (I think) question: has BL ever released any info on how the several HH authors have coordinated/are coordinating their efforts? HH is likely to span a dozen or (many?) more novels, many, many thousands of pages and hundreds of characters. Keeping all that straight must be a massive undertaking. I wonder how they did it. I can't believe it's "do your own thing."

You'd have to ask dead.blue.clown (aka Aaron Dembski-Bowden), but from what he's said I believe the authors who are invited to write noevls for the Heresy present a synopsis/idea for their novel and if it's approved they're given the green light to write it- also I think there are regualr sit downs with the authors where they all hash out what they want to do and how it will effect each other's work.
