This was an interesting anthology with one of my favourite tales of all times set in the warhammer 40k.

"Elucidium" by Simon Spurrier is a masterpiece. This tale made me swear in the end. It's that good. Twist upon twist that make you think what a heck just happenend. A inquisitor that really puts a question in our mouth. What a heck would you sacrifice to achieve victory in the end? What are willing to sacrifice? Surely Simon Spurrier is one of the best authors to write for BL. Unfortunally he l

Imagine my surprise at finding a Warhammer book at my local library. I haven't read much outside of the Horus Heresy series, but I occasionally will read one of these when I can get my hands on them. This is a short anthology. The leading story is by Dan Abnett, and features his popular characters, the Inquisitors Eisenhorn and Ravenor. The rest of the stories are uneven, though I enjoyed the twists and turns of Simon Spurrier's "Elucidium".

Book was good and has one of the best 40K short stories I think I've read - the one y Simon Spurrier was fantastic and had so many twists and turns that kept me guessing throughout the book. Overall, a few of the stories are covered elsewhere (the Caiphas Cain one is one of the omnibuses, as is the Ravenor/Esienhorn one). Overall, a gripping read.

Good collection of Warhammer 40,000 short stories. The best one is the Eisenhorn/Ravenor cross-over.

Best 40K short stories collection ever. Simon Spurrier's "Elucidium" is a masterpiece!!!

Publisher, editor, art director, these days for his imprint Angry Robot - winning slogan "the best in SF, F and WTF?!" - but also previously publisher of both Black Library and Solaris. Before that - a whole swathe of books for children and teens, both fiction and non-fiction, tie-ins and original works, as well as games, journalism, computer games and more. Probably in need of a good sit down.
