http://www.blacklibrary.com/exclusive-products/sabbat-crusade-first-edition.html

Fans of the Flesh Tearers and the Sabbat Worlds Crusade will (might) be pleased by the announcement of two new Black Library First Editions. Sons of Wrath is a M32 story about the origins of the Flesh Tearers Chapter and is a novella priced at £45. Sabbat Crusade is a new anthology similar to the original Sabbat Worlds, and this is a full novel anthology priced at £50.

I will not be getting either of these. Sons of Wrath because I am not paying £45 for a novella. Sabbat Crusade because... I am completely and utterly uninterested in the Sabbat Worlds.

Hrm, where do you see Sons of Wrath is a novella?
It said "novella-length" somewhere.

Not sure anymore actually. The email about this article has another image of all these books in a pile, side-view, and it looks as if Sons of Wrath is the full novel and Trial by Blood is the novella. Have to wait for real confirmation before I can be sure.

Either way I MUST get Ahriman: Sorcerer and The Long Night from this.

i would like both these but i've kinda been boycotting this stuff due to the prices. i don't like limited edition stuff priced at high prices. that's why i passed on talon of horus 1st ed and just went with the normal version and saved $40.

I have to agree they are really milking the First edition concept. People would be more inclined to fall for it if it was the really big releases like Talon of Horus.

What the shit? They're really taking the piss now, even for me with my absurd lack of control when spending on BL stuff.

Sadly I'm such an enormous Gaunts Ghosts fan that I'll probably buy the damned anthology.

They have gone too far with this crap now. £50!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Piss off BL.
I think the reason that they are charging more for the Sabbat Crusade anthology is that, from this image at least, it appears to be a bit bigger than the standard BL hardback;



Looks to be at least 500+ pages, maybe nearly 600. As for Sons of Wrath and Trial by Blood, I can't tell if they are novels or novellas. The latter looks very thin here, while the former could either be a smaller hardback or a regular sized paperback. Need confirmation on what is what before I start making a list of things I want.

So far though the two things that I must definitely get are Ahriman: Sorcerer and the dual audio Master of the First/The Long Night (MOAR SEVATAR!)

Well now they are really pushing it with the milking. I cannot for the love of god find a good reason for the Flesh Tearer one to be 15€ more expensive than "The Talon of Horus" and "Rebirth" were, nor can I find a justification for it being a First Edition in the first place. Also, the 20€ Gaunt‘s Ghosts/Dan Abnett tax for "Sabbat Worlds" is just taking the piss.

Still buying both because I am weak and thus part of the problem.

Well the First Editions seem to be either series starters or stand-out books, and we've known for a bit now that Andy Smillie has been working on a Flesh Tearers trilogy. Maybe Sons of Wrath is the first of that new series.

Are you serious? £50 for an anthology. The reason they are charging more has nothing to do with the size of the book and more to do with how much they think they can charge and get away with it. The thing is people will probably pay it.

It's strange to hear you not excited about something for the first time. I'll quote myself from another thread!

Well its nice that they start exploring the Scourge with the view from the Flesh Tearers. How ever I wont be getting any FE-crap. :) Also GG is always fun but the same there. I'll wait for the regular softback.
I'd (probably) buy the Sabbat Crusade if it were a novel written by Dan. But an anthology? No, thanks.

I had the same feeling, but the regular softback will be welcomed. :)

I'm just not interested in the Sabbat Worlds stories. Gaunt's Ghosts, the anthologies, Double Eagle and Interceptor City; not bothered about any of them really.

I emailed them about the length of Sons of Wrath...

Sons of Wrath has a larger word count than our Novella Range but shorter count that our Novel Range. Over the three stories contained with this First Edition you will get a novels worth of content. More information on this Book will be announced shortly.
