The novella CYBERNETICA - formerly a Limited Edition - is now available as an ebook.




Soon after word reached Terra of Horus's nascent rebellion, Mars fell. Rogue elements within the Mechanicum priesthood, stirred by the Warmaster's promises of independence and prosperity, turned against the Imperium and forced the primarch Rogal Dorn to order an impenetrable blockade of the Red Planet. Now it has become clear that the corruption has spread too deep, and that more drastic measures must be taken if the Forge World Principal is to be reclaimed. Calling upon the expertise of those who witnessed the so-called 'Death of Innocence' firsthand, Lord Dorn and Malcador the Sigillite consider their final solution - the complete extermination of all life on Mars.

An extract and the novella is available HERE.


The seeds of corruption lurk beneath the surface of an idylic island village, where the forces of Nurgle and Slaanesh vie for the souls of its inhabitants. The short story DAEMON OF THE DEEP is available HERE.


Sigmar’s warriors have attacked Chaos strongholds in the Shatterlands, driving the servants of the Ruinous Powers out and bringing hope to the people living a precarious existence in the region, and beyond. This insult cannot stand, and Orphaeo Zuvius, now one of Archaon’s trusted Varanguard, rides to war against the Stormcast Eternals with the twisted, numberless hordes of the Everchosen.

The short story SEE NO EVIL is available HERE. The first two short stories in the trilogy, called EYE OF THE STORM and IN THE LANDS OF THE BLIND are available HERE and HERE.




In the immediate aftermath of the Word Bearers’ attack on Calth, survivors from both sides were driven into the subterranean arcology shelters by the tortured Veridian star. While their primarch Roboute Guilliman had planned for many seemingly unthinkable eventualities, the Ultramarines now face a new war in the underworld – could Steloc Aethon, renowned captain of ‘the Honoured 19th’ Company, be the one to lead them to ultimate victory over the traitors? Perhaps, if he can master his own bitter desire for vengeance…

THE HONOURED is COMING SOON in Hardback, Ebook, Audio book and AVAILABLE NOW as a 'Betrayal at Calth' Limited Special Edition (with its companion novel, 'The Unburdened' by David Annandale). Click HERE.



Chrysaor the Wanton, a Lord of Slaanesh, faces his destiny as he and his warband encounter Stormcast Eternals while ravaging the villages of the ever-changing region known as the Plinth. BY THE HORNS is available HERE.



Orphaeo Zuvius has battled untold horrors to finally reach the Varanspire, Archaon’s dread fortress. But the infernal stronghold presents an even greater challenge, as hordes of monstrous daemons and sorcerous fire rise up against him. So close to his goal, can the Prince of Embers prevail in this final test to become the chosen of Archaon? IN THE LANDS OF THE BLIND is available HERE and is the sequel short story to EYE OF THE STORM which is available HERE


Of the many champions of Chaos, none are as great or as feared as mighty Archaon. He is the Everchosen, Exalted Grand Marshal of the Apocalypse and Ender of Worlds, and it is a worthy warrior indeed who can fight by his side. Such Knights of Ruin are known as the Varanguard. Only by answering the call of Archaon can a warrior of Chaos ascend to their ranks, and acceptance is never guaranteed, for their mettle must first be proven. In this dark tale, three fell champions of the Chaos Gods all heed the call of the Everchosen. Each desires the ultimate prize: to become part of the Varanguard. But where one is chosen, others will fail, for Archaon’s will is cruel and his trials exacting...

THE REALMGATE WARS: CALL OF ARCHAON contains the short stories EYE OF THE STORM, IN THE LANDS OF THE BLIND and SEE NO EVIL, following the Chaos champion Orphaeo Zuvius. It is available in HARDBACK, EBOOK and AUDIOBOOK HERE.



With Wolf Lord Krom Dragongaze and many of hs kin fighting for their lives in the Dark City of Commorragh, things look bleak for the Space Wolves and their mission to find Logan Grimnar. As Ulrik the Slayer enacts a daring rescue plan, Krom breaks out... but when they are pursued by vengeful dark eldar, it may take a miracle to save them from destruction. A miracle... or the intervention of their old rivals, the Dark Angels.

THE DARKNESS OF ANGELS is available HERE.



-COMING SOON-


After centuries of peace, the Imperium is thrown into panic as human worlds everywhere are menaced by orks. In a relentless tide of slaughter, ork attack moons destroy planet after planet with gravity weapons of unstoppable power. On Terra, the High Lords are paralysed by the scale of the threat, and fail to take any effective action. With entire Space Marine Chapters missing, or known to have been wiped out, does anyone have the will and the power to rise to the Imperium’s defence?





My comic strip THE OBSERVER EFFECT is featured in BOMB SCARES, a new horror comic anthology showcasing a truly frightening array of artists and writers.

Get to know a little more about author Rob Sanders by playing 'True or False'. Below are twenty statements. Ten are true and ten are false. See if you can guess which are which. Answers are given on the link below.


1 I was banned from the Library not once but twice for not returning library books.

2 I have been writing for Black Library, in one form or another, for ten years.

3 My office is a perpetual mess, buried in books and trinkets associated with popular culture.

4 I once wrote a short story with crime author Ian Rankin, creator of Rebus.

5 I have a First Class Honours in English Literature and History.

6 I hate the plays of William Shakespeare – reading them, being assessed on them and teaching them.

7 When I was younger I had a collection of poetry published.

8 Starting as the Head of English at a local secondary school, I improved GCSE English grades by 20% in a single year.

9 My favourite film of all time is Aliens (1986) by James Cameron.

10 In my twenties, I spent six months in Nigeria on a Voluntary Service Overseas teaching placement.

11 Despite not being religious, I once won a national fiction competition by writing a fictional book of the Old Testament.

12 I prefer silence while I am writing, since I’m dreadfully easy to distract.

13 My first introduction to Fantasy and Science Fiction was through gamebooks.

14 I wasn’t a big reader of fiction in my childhood, much preferring non-fiction – books on space and dinosaurs.

15 My first published fiction came about by accident, when a friend of mine introduced me to editor Christian Dunn.

16 Among the classics, my favourite novel is ‘Far From the Madding Crowd’.

17 I have a Border Collie called ‘Gatsby’.

18 I tend to write first drafts by hand before typing them up on a laptop.

19 I did a work placement with my publisher, to experience the process of producing a novel from the editorial end of the process.

20 I have never played Warhammer 40,000, or any Games Workshop product for that matter.


See how many you got right. Check your answers HERE.

Check your answers below.


1 I was banned from the Library not once but twice for not returning library books.

TRUE Once as a child and once as an adult. Both times because of my rather fluid relationship with time.


2 I have been writing for Black Library, in one form or another, for ten years.

FALSE It’s actually been thirteen years since I wrote my first short story for Black Library.


3 My office is a perpetual mess, buried in books and trinkets associated with popular culture.

FALSE My office is intentionally tiny. Unlike many authors, I tend to restrict the amount of clutter – books, models etc. (what Philip K. Dick calls ‘Kipple’). I prefer a room, a screen and my thoughts.


4 I once wrote a short story with crime author Ian Rankin, creator of Rebus.

TRUE As part of a writing competition for the BBC called ‘End of Story’, I wrote the second half of a short story that Ian Rankin had started. The competition was the biggest creative writing competition in the country, attracting over 17000 entrants, both professional authors and amateurs (like myself at the time). I reached the top 6 and was featured in the television series that followed the competition.


5 I have a First Class Honours in English Literature and History.

TRUE My dissertation title was ‘Sexual Politics in the Early Gothic Novel – a Barthesian Approach.’ I very much enjoyed literary theory while everyone else around me hated it. Flying in the face of instinct I chose to base it on a collection of novels and a period I hated so I had no fear of ripping the texts to shreds. It worked.


6 I hate the plays of William Shakespeare – reading them, being assessed on them and teaching them.

FALSE I love the plays of William Shakespeare, Christopher Marlowe and the Early Modern Period in general. My particular favourites are King Lear, Richard III, Anthony and Cleopatra, Much Ado About Nothing (Shakespeare), Tamburlaine and Edward II (Marlowe).


7 When I was younger I had a collection of poetry published.

FALSE I had some pieces of poetry published in national poetry magazines. I did not have a collection of poetry published. Despite some early potential, my interest in writing poetry waned when I discovered how little critical and popular attention it received – which is a shame.


8 Starting as the Head of English at a local secondary school, I improved GCSE English grades by 20% in a single year.

TRUE A tumultuous first year in which I took over, brought in a plethora of new strategies / approaches and reassembled my staff into a fantastic team that could achieve such an objective. Ultimately, a pretty thankless task as it turned out. At least the students got to walk away with their grades.


9 My favourite film of all time is Aliens (1986) by James Cameron.

TRUE I must have seen it hundreds of times. A tour de force exercise in rollercoaster film making. Love him or hate him – you do not bet against James Cameron.


10 In my twenties, I spent a year in Nigeria on a Voluntary Service Overseas teaching placement.

FALSE I’m not much of a traveller, it must be said. A friend of mine from teaching practice looked into spending a year in Nigeria as part of a VSO teaching placement. As part of the placement, the VSO put you in contact with a volunteer who has been to the place you are being sent to. We went to see her and she had a horror story to tell. She was routinely robbed by the people she was trying to help and police officers stopped her on every street corner for a bribe to let her walk by. She had to call her boyfriend to fly out to be with her, but the pair of them got dragged into an alley and robbed with a gun levelled between his eyeballs. And that was that. They jumped on a plane and came home. Needless to say, my friend never went to Nigeria.


11 Despite not being religious, I once won a national fiction competition by writing a fictional book of the Old Testament.

TRUE The competition was run by Literary Agent Peter Cox (Agent of Michelle Paver, of ‘Wolf Brother: Chronicles of Ancient Darkness’ fame – optioned to be turned into a film by Ridley Scott). Just followed my instincts on this one. I wrote a fictional, biblical account of Cain banished from the Garden of Eden after murdering his brother. The story emulated language from the Bible and even came complete with numbers and notations. It did what it was designed to do, which was catch the eye.


12 I prefer silence while I am writing, since I’m dreadfully easy to distract.

FALSE I always listen to music when I am writing – mostly film soundtracks, because they already have an emotional architecture built into them. I have collections of track organised by tone – ‘Action’, ‘Emotion’, ‘Thoughtful’ etc that I like to have on in the background while I’m writing.


13 My first introduction to Fantasy and Science Fiction was through gamebooks.

TRUE I loved gamebooks as a kid. Even then I knew that I wanted to be in control of the story. When I play console games now I tend to favour open world games that allow you control over the character, where they go and what they do.


14 I wasn’t a big reader of fiction in my childhood, much preferring non-fiction – books on space and dinosaurs.

TRUE Even as a kid, I guess I would much rather be researching my own fiction than reading someone else’s.


15 My first published fiction came about by accident, when a friend of mine introduced me to editor Christian Dunn.

FALSE No. Before writing for Black Library I didn’t know anyone there, at Games Workshop or knew anyone else who knew somebody. I came in through the slush pile. I sent my short story ‘The Cold Light of Day’ in cold and Christian Dunn picked it up out of the pile for publication in Inferno! Magazine. I then met Christian after. This was a fairly rare occurrence, I came to learn, but it should give budding authors hope. You need skill – but even with skill, you still need a little luck. You need to get the right piece of work, in front of the right person at the right time. There’s many a good writer (published and not) who has fallen foul of one of those things.


16 Among the classics, my favourite novel is ‘Far From the Madding Crowd’.

FALSE Thomas Hardy is not one of my favourites, although the “because we are too menny” scene in ‘Jude the Obscure’ gets me every time. My actual favourite from the classics, is ‘Wuthering Heights’ by Emily Bronte. It is a structurally ambitions novel of such raw power, darkness and emotion, written by a sheltered young woman in her twenties. Incredible.


17 I have a Border Collie called ‘Gatsby’.

TRUE Named after F. Scott Fitzgerald’s titular character.


18 I tend to write first drafts by hand before typing them up on a laptop.

FALSE No. The laptop and my fingers – the screen and my mind - are as one. I increasingly find writing with a pen a slightly alien activity.


19 I did a work placement with my publisher, to experience the process of producing a novel from the editorial end of the process.

TRUE After producing my first pieces of published fiction I thought it best to try and understand the process of writing fiction from both ends. It was an eye-opener of a placement, in terms of how editors approach the fiction before them, the realities of the slush pile and the myriad demands of reader.


20 I have never played Warhammer 40,000, or any Games Workshop product for that matter.

FALSE It is true that I don’t tend to play very much now. My time is taken up doing the thing I love, which is writing. In my youth I did play a great deal but used to enjoy the planning part of the game more than the actual battles themselves. I also ran a Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay club in the first secondary school I worked in as an English teacher. It ran every day at lunchtime for several years. It contained girls and boys from different years groups as well as the occasional teacher. It was very successful but eventually became too big to manage.


How did you do?

As the call of Archaon echoes out across the mortal realms, another of the champions of Chaos heeds its summons. Zuvius, a servant of Tzeentch, determines he must prove his worthiness to the Everchosen and ascend to serve at his banner. With a small retinue, he ventures onto the Blasted Plain and a reckoning with the warriors of the Goresworn. Only one will be chosen...

Get an insight into another aspect of Chaos – the tricky, conniving, deceptive side. Tzeentch champion Zuvias lies and manipulates the servants of the Blood God to get him safely across the dangers of the Blasted Plains. A fantastic contrast between the gore-soaked barbarism of the Khorne Bloodbound and the sinister subtlety of the followers of Tzeentch.
