Coming Soon! ANGELS OF DEATH (A Warhammer 40K Space Marines Omnibus) by Christian Dunn and C.L. Werner
In my slowly progressing travels into the Warhammer 40K books, the Space Marine stories are, I suspect, my next stop. (I’m looking at you, Space Marine Omnibus by Christian Dunn!)

Werner). Man, how I love the feel of a big fat WH40K omnibus in my greedy little hands…

With so many books that I already want to read, I’m not quite sure why I get so excited to learn about even more books that I want to read coming on the horizon.

Here’s a slew of forthcoming books on my radar…
