Isn't it sold out? And like others have said, despite it being ADB, the cost is way too high. Buying it tells BL it's ok to keep doing what they're doing.

All gone. Got to wait for the arbitrary date BL will set before it comes on paperback sale/ebook release or comes up on the Vault

I wonder if ADB see's any financial gain from it being printed in extra special paper.

Maybe authors should be paid for word count as well as sales. Might reduce the number of short stories ;)

Don't know if it sold out actually. Can't see it for sale on BL website. Anyone want mine? I generally don't hang on to books and this one had been on the way to my local charity shop. Can post it somewhere though if it's going to a good home.
This is okay, there is even a trade forum if you have multiple books your looking to dispose of.



So, no scans?

99% certain he does. Royalties are percentage based off sales.

I think you overestimate how much input the average author has with their publishers.
If they're the Stephin Kings of their publishing house then of course they do. BL is small and really only a handful of writers are what's keeping the whole thing afloat and bringing in new fans. ADB is the Mick Jagger of BL.

So what we're basically trying to work out is if ADB burst into head office with his storm bolter and NL helmet on and held everyone hostage until they agreed that what would really make his new book sell even better was a magnetic strip up the side.

Anyone else read this yet?

I was holding off reading this as a treat, ADB once again writing about my favourite SM chapter fighting in one of the greatest battles of the 40k universe. Imagine my dismay to find that I am struggling to finish even so short a novella. It's fucking dreadful. If I read it without knowing the writer, ADB would be the last author I would guess wrote it. It harks back more to the later dross of the Ragnar series than the excellence of The Emperor's Gift.

I'm just over half way through. Someone please tell me it's worth continuing.
