Black Library: Upcoming Horus Heresy products

Howdy Guys and Girls,

Today we have an overview of upcoming Black Library stuff for you - enjoy :)

- WARNING - this may contain smaller spoilers!! -

The Master of Mankind

While Horus’ rebellion burns across the galaxy, a very different kind of war rages beneath the Imperial Palace. The ‘Ten Thousand’ Custodian Guard, along with the Sisters of Silence and the Mechanicum forces of Fabricator General Kane, fight to control the nexus points of the ancient eldar webway that lie closest to Terra, infested by daemonic entities after Magnus the Red’s intrusion. But with traitor legionaries and corrupted Battle Titans now counted among the forces of Chaos, the noose around the Throneworld is tightening, and none but the Emperor Himself can hope to prevail.

Written by Aaron Dembski-Bowden

Sons of the Forge

Charged with a solemn duty by the Primarch Vulkan himself, Forgefather T'kell of the Salamanders prepares for what may be his last journey. Along with a chosen few of the Legion's elite Firedrakes , he must  bear the last seven of Vulkan's greatest weapons away to the secret vault known as the Wrought, putting them forever beyond the reach of enemy and ally alike. But word has already spread of these legendary artifacts ... 

Written by Nick Kyme

Magnus the Red: Master of Prospero

Lord of the mystical and uncanny, Magnus the Red has long studied the ancient crafts of sorcery. A psyker without peer, save only for the Emperor himself, he commands his loyal followers of the Thousand Sons Legion in the Great Crusade, though also vigilant for any lost knowledge they might recover from the remains of dead human civilisations. Now, fighting alongside his brother Perturabo of the Iron Warriors, Magnus begins to foresee an approaching nexus of fate - will he remain true to their mutual aims, or divert his own efforts towards furthering his own mastery of the warp?

Written by Graham McNeill

The Thirteenth Wolf (Audio Drama)

For more than two hundred years, the armies of the Emperor of Mankind fought to reconquer the galaxy - led by the superhuman primarchs, the Space Marine Legions brought countless worlds back under the rule of ancient Terra. Now Horus, once honoured Warmaster and favoured son of the Emperor, has been corrupted by the whispered promises of Chaos. At his command the Imperium is torn apart by a terrible and bloody civil war, the likes of which the galaxy has never seen... At the Emperor's command were the Wolves of Russ unleashed, but it is by the will of Horus alone that Prospero now burns. The VIth Legion have stormed the world of Magnus the Red, with venerable warriors of the Thirteenth Great Company always to be found where the fighting is at its most bloody, seeking to write their own names into the sagas of Fenris. But the Thousand Sons are far from defeated, and their foul sorcery may yet be the doom of all, deep within the maddening heart of the Portal Maze.

We know that 13th Great Company of the Space Wolves spent 10,000 years in the warp after the Battle of Prospero, but what events in the aftermath of the invasion led them to that fate?

Written by Gav Thorpe. Running time 68 minutes.

There is also a cool new artwork for Blood Angels fans (for a former ebook only story) - thanks @ LordValrak =)

Last but not least - there are some more Primarch novels on the way -  Perturabo: The Hammer of Olympia, written by Guy Haley. It will feature two stories - before he got unified with the Emperor, and when he unleashes his Legion's fury upon Olympia. There will also be a Lorgar book by Gav Thorpe and Ferrus Manus by David Guymer.

Paired up with Inferno (which may get released within the next 3 months), it looks like we have an awesome reading line-up for the end of the year. And the cover arts are really awesome again! What story are you most interested in? Write us in the comments below :)
