Josh Reynolds Talks Humour, Horror and the Age of Reynolds: Part Two

In the first part of my interview with prolific, dark-humoured author Josh Reynolds we discussed his early career, and looked at his work for Black Library in the Age of Sigmar setting as well as a little bit about old-school Warhammer. If you haven’t yet checked that out, click here to go back and have a read of part one.

In this, the second part of the interview, Josh talks about his Warhammer 40,000 and Horus Heresy writing, including Fabius Bile, Lukas the Trickster and the primarch of the Emperor’s Children – Fulgrim. If you’ve read any of his Fabius stories then you’ll know just how good they are, and hopefully this will provide a little extra insight, but if you haven’t…firstly, what are you waiting for?! Read on to learn what influenced Fabius’ tone of voice, and get a bit of a sense of what you might be able to expect.

Josh Reynolds Talks Humour, Horror and the Age of Reynolds: Part One

From his early work in the Old World through the End Times and beyond, and onto more recent work on Age of Sigmar, Fabius Bile and even the Horus Heresy, Josh Reynolds has for a long time been one of the most prolific Black Library authors. If you’re a Black Library fan, chances are you’ve read at least a few of Josh’s stories.

I’ve been following Josh’s career for a few years now, mostly through his Black Library work but also with a couple of other publishers, so I was delighted when he agreed to an interview. Rather than focusing in on one specific book or series, I wanted to cover quite a wide range of topics so we bounce from Josh’s early short stories to his most recent work, by way of music (including the soundtrack to Fabius Bile), invasive plants, Cryptids, the question of faith in Warhammer, and Space Wolf ‘knock knock’ jokes.
