Ignoring the possible answer that it should be something non Black Library...I have quite a few as yet unread BL books on my shelves (from when I used to buy almost everything they published...no more). So what shall I read next?

Word Bearers omnibus - Anthony Reynolds
Soul Drinkers omnibus (1st one) - Ben Counter
Lords of Mars - Graham McNeil
Angels of Darkness - Gav Thorpe
Hammer and Anvil - James Swallow
Dead Men Walking - Steve Lyons
Salamander - Nick Kyme
Gildar Rift - Sarah Cawkwell
Damnation of Pythos - David Annandale

I did say some were pretty old!

Would really appreciate some recommendations from that list (inc any to stay away from lol)

Thanks

Either of those three in my opinion.

I'm gonna go against the grain and say Hammer and Anvil, but only if you've already read Faith and Fire. Otherwise go for Angels of Darkness.

NOT: Damnation of Pythos - David Annandale
This book's cardinal sin, in the eyes of readers, is that it doesn't advance the main HH storyline. In my opinion, it's a great standalone story.

Age Of Darkness is OK, I think that or Damnation of Pythos- maybe my love of HH is making that bias though...
He listed Angels of Darkness, not Age of Darkness. The first is a fairly old novel about a Dark Angel chaplain and the fallen, the second is about the opening stages to the Age of Darkness during the Heresy.
