If you are going for the full on completionist path you will end up with duplicates no matter what you do, since BL is a sucker for releasing short stories, novellas and such in print format only in collections and such. I have bought every BL release for the past four/five years or so, and have ended up with plenty of duplicates in one way or another when chasing for short stories that have only been available as ebooks or novellas that they first release alongside another book and only afterwards separately (such as Blood and Fire first only being available alongside Helsreach and only afterwards being available separately, so first I bought Helsreach, then I bought Helsreach again to get the novella, and after that I bought the novella again because hey, fuck me, I am a moron.)

Then we have shit like the Sanctus Reach novellas being released separately as three novellas and afterwards being bundled as a Space Marines Battle book for like 1/4th of the price, which is just an kick in the balls really.

As for the Heresy series, a few of the novellas have ended up in the short story collections over the years so I assume the end goal is to have them all there. Then we have the odd cases like Prince of Crows and The Crimson Fist which first appeared in the short story collection Shadows of Treachery, and were later released separately as novellas, because why not, idiots like me buy them just for the cover art.
