Black Library Weekly – W/C 17/04/17

Hello and welcome to another instalment of Black Library Weekly, my regular look at what’s been happening in the world of Black Library. The sixteenth week of 2017 started with a bang, kicking off a week that was topped and tailed by surprise releases. Oh, and the small matter of confirmation that 8th edition of 40k is coming soon – I’m not going to focus on that until there’s cool new Black Library fiction released to accompany it, but it’s interesting news for sure! Anyway, let’s start where we usually do…

Warhammer 40,000 Legends Issue Six – Crossfire by Matthew Farrer

The sixth book of Hachette/Black Library’s Warhammer 40,000 Legends Collection is Matthew Farrer’s Crossfire, his first novel for Black Library and the opening book in the Shira Calpurnia trilogy. Similarly to Dan Abnett’s Eisenhorn series, this book and the others in its trilogy take a look at life in the Imperium away from the big battlefields, this time exploring what it’s like being a member of the Adeptus Arbites. The 40k universe is a big place, with plenty of conflict on the street level, as Shira finds shortly after landing on a new world right at the beginning of this book.

The Latest Black Library Offers (April 2017)

If you’ve been following the week’s Black Library news you’ll probably have spotted two things. First of all, the Black Library website is now dedicated to just Black Library, with the Warhammer Digital side of things (all the rules, painting guides etc.) now getting its own website – this change comes with a range of offers and discounts on the two websites. Secondly, the first ever (as far as I’m aware) Black Library Humble Bundle is now available, for a limited time only. I thought I’d take a quick look at the various offers currently available, so you don’t have to do the legwork.

Black Library Weekly – W/C 13/03/17

Hello and welcome to another instalment of Black Library Weekly, my regular look at what’s been happening in the world of Black Library. It’s been a Titanic week (sorry) this time around, opening with a short story full of Heresy-era Titans and closing with no less than three Titan-related books. Good news if you like Titans – if you don’t…what’s wrong with you?! Anyway, let’s start at the beginning of the week as usual…

Hi there, and thanks for taking a look at this blog post.

I’m excited to confirm now that there are some changes coming up for the blog, beginning with the migration over to a brand new domain – it’s not live just yet, as I’m finishing off a few little tweaks, but trackofwords.com is coming soon and I wanted to let you all know.
