The Story

To mark the momentous release of the new Adeptus Mechanicus Warhammer 40,000 army, we've released a new novel entirely in the Omnissiah-approved language of binary!
This brand new, and entirely not made-up book, follows the adventures of a young servitor who dreams of being a skitarii warrior. Unlike most of our novels, this story is written for, and by, a computer. Of course, reading in binary can be a little tricky at first, but by the 5th or 6th chapter we think you'll hardly notice.
00110001 is available as both as a hardback, and of course, as a digitally superior eBook edition.

Translation of the Binary:
A heartwarming story about a lowly servitor who dreams of serving the Omnissiah as a Skitarii warrior.
But it doesn't end there! There is a "buy ebook" button. If you click it you go to this page:

Sorry, we lied.
There's not really a story about a servitor who dreams of being a skitarii warrior. The Imperium carefully removes any sections
of a servitor's brain capable of dreaming, and even if they could, servitors have very few options for career progression.

The real joke would have been to actually release a novel written entirely in binary. But a great joke none the less. :)

One chapter would come in at about two hundred pages,
the full book would make war and peace look like a short poem...............
and cost about £100.........

Not if the only actual binary text in the book translated as "You really bought this? Seriously? That's fucking hilarious! Trololololololololololololololololololololololololololololololololol............"
