Book number five for 2006: Dead Ball by Matt Forbeck
The follow up to Blood Bowl, the first in Matt's trilogy about a football-like game in Games Worskhop's fantasy world of Warhammer, Dead Ball just isn't as good. There are many moments of "Problem solved, oops, problem not solved, NOW problem solved, whooops, problem not solved after all, etc. It thrashes a bit, this one does.

He adds more detail to the world, but for all the changes, by the end of the book, nothing is substantially different -
This series is set in the Blood Bowl world which is a bit like the Warhammer Word as imagined by the writers of Police Squad. Its laugh out loud funny through a series of gripping adventures full of amusing stereotypical characters that has something of Discworld mixed with Gotrek & Felix about it.
