Let The Galaxy BURN!
What your favorite Warhammer novel (40K, fantasy, even Dark Future)?

(Mine is Necropolis.)

Ghostmaker had some pretty deep stories. Granted it was a montage of short stories really, but still...the one with Mad Larkin...damn!
I started with Sabbat Martyr unfortunately, now I'm working my way through the rest from the beginning. Started Necropolis last night. So far they are all good. Dan Abnett is the MAN! Kinda sucks knowing what happens in Sabbat Martyr and THEN reading the preceeding books.

Eisenhorn was very good.
I enjoyed Dawn of War and Gilead's Blood.
Dead Sky Black Sun I found was the last in a series, started there too [figures]. It was okay. Seemed gratuitously graphic at times, but dealing with
the subject matter i guess it makes sense.

Magestorm was good.
Bored with Hammers of Ulric.

The Inquisition War was good. No where near as good as the Eisenhorn series, but still...in consideration of when it was written, it kept my attention and inspired me to buy more books and minis, which is really what it's all about.

Really? I liked Hammers Of Ulric...

I was a bit bored with Dead Sky Black Sun, so I never got very far into it before switching to another book. Didn't know that the series was ending. I'll have to finish reading it sometime.

The only books I really had trouble getting through lately were the Soul Drinker novels. The first one was okay, but the second was pretty dull.

And Crusade For Armageddon was hard to get into.

How many times did we need to be told "sarpedon was a telepath who couldn't recieve but could transmit images"

Blah i got bored of that point being repeated every ten pages.

Bill King did something similiar... how many times did Gotrek's axe carve a path of red ruin?
