The Black Library

So a few months ago I decided that I needed to jump start my 40K interest.  I had all these models but I wasn't playing my 'Crons or building with my Orks.  So i started reading Dan Abnett's Gaunt's Ghost series.  I picked up the first omnibus and never really put it down.  After devouring the first omnibus I started the second, "The Saint" which continues directly where Gaunt's Ghosts left off.  I have to be honest with you, the writing had me jones'in for a Guard fix.  I then decided to read Ravenor and I had a little down time with this one but was able to power through some of the longer parts and still very much enjoyed the read.

What I am looking for now is a good Space Marine story in the fashion of Gaunts Ghosts.  Anyone have any recommendations?

I too have recently got onto the Abnett bandwagon and while I myself haven't come across any SM books as of yet I know he has some out there. I found this list of his work that may be able to point you in the right direction.


Also, if you have already read Ravenor then you have to read Eisenhorn its like, a law, or something. In all seriousness though its a fantastic read in a new direction for the Inquisition storyline.

Finally, if your purchase habits are in any way influenced by his writing ( which is really easy to do ) NEVER under any circumstances read Titanicus. If you do, never ever go back to the Forge World website. It may be the only way for your reading, hobby and wallet can co-exist peacefully. You have been warned.

Happy reading!
