In the Warhammer 40k universe, the Sabbat Worlds are a section of over a hundred planets in Segmentum Pacificus, and retaking those worlds from the forces of Chaos is the primary objective of Warmaster Slaydo's Crusade. This anthology is a series of short stories about some of the many different units taking part in the crusade.

The biggest draw is, of course, Dan Abnett's 2 stories about the Tanith First and Only. If you haven't read any of the Gaunt's Ghosts books before, Of Their Lives in the

OMG OMG OMG! Another book about the Sabbat Worlds crusade! Wait, let me back up. So about a year ago, Dan Abnett was writing like 30 books at the same time (the dude writes a BUNCH!), and it turned out he was sick. He wen't to the doctors and found out, in his words, that it was, "just epilepsy" his schedule slipped a bit. Prospero Burns, which was supposed to come out at the same time as A Thousand Sons, is now coming out this coming January. Also, the thirteenth Ghosts book (13, really?!) had ...more
Bridging the gap between the publication of Blood Pact and Salvation's Reach, Sabbat Worlds Anthology collects eight stories from some of the Black Library's most noted authors, edited by Dan Abnett and set within the setting for his Gaunt's Ghosts series, the wartorn Sabbat Worlds. All take inspiration from the events and worlds created or alluded to by Dan Abnett, and help to flesh out this part of the 40k universe.

All of these stories were good, the different authors picked (how I'm not sure, I''m assuming either BL or Dan Abnett himself asked about) all contributed their own little flavor to the overall 'Daniverse' and the man himself contributed two fantastic stories.
My favorites were Nick Kyme's story about the Volpone Bluebloods, Aaron Dembski-Bowden's tale of the death of Warmaster Slaydo and the final story written by Dan himself. Still, all the others were good. And i didn't honestly know that his

It has some good, and some mediocre stuff. Highly recommend stories by Aaron Dembski-Bowden and Matthew Farrer - two jewels in this anthology. What more surprising - is that Dan's story is the least uninteresting in it
Awesome Abnett. Bitter-sweet. Best passage: He swipes the sweat off his face. He thinks about trying again, and second chances. Sometimes there just isn't the opportunity or the willingness to make things better. Sometimes you can't simply have another go. You make a choice, and it's a bad one, and you're left with it. No amount of trying again will fix it. Don't expect anyone to feel sorry for you, to cut you slack; you made a mistake you'll have to live with.
A Mixed Bag To Tide Fans Over

8 short stories based on the Gaunts Ghosts series, 2 featuring the Ghosts themselves, some strong entries especially the 2 about the Ghosts themselves, as usual strong stories come especially from Dan Abnett, Graham McNeill and Aaron Dembski-Bowden, the weaker stories come from Matthew Farrer and Nik Vincent but these are still 3 star stories themselves, will keep all fans happy until the next instalment comes in.
Reading this series of books is just one big guilty pleasure! Set in the 41st Millennium, the series chronicles a galaxy-encompassing Great Crusade, waged against an assortment of aliens, demons and heretics. Gothic, bloody and great fun!

I have added this anthology to my "read" list but I have only read one short story in it. I am currently reading the Gaunt's Ghosts series and therefore I am only reading the Gaunt's Ghosts stories.

#In the interests of full disclosure.

Abnett's tales are great, the other ones not very much.
Scott Taylor
As a anthology, Abnett's work stands out. The stories are strong and lend to the licensed universe of space warfare. If you like Warhammer 40K, you can do no wrong with this book.
Skut L
I liked the stories by Abnett, Mitchell (which was essentially The Third Man through the lens of the 40k universe, zither-player included), Dembski-Bowden and Kyme best.
Seth Smith
The initial few stories are, I think the first, but they become progressively better, culminating with Iron Star and "Of Their Lives in the Ruins of Their Cities'
Some good stories from the likes of Abnett and McNeill and some not so good...nonetheless, nice to see some other authors have a play in the Sabbat campaign.
Felix Castro
Decent book. Nice to see other authors playing in the Sabbat Worlds setting. Plus its got a Gaunt's Ghosts novella in it so there's that
It was OK. Somewhat predictable most of the times. Liked the "Gaunt: Begins!" feeling at the last short story thou'
a nice collection of stories. It is always nice to see others playing in someone else worlds.
Another enjoyable romp through the hideous universe of Warhammer
Most of the stories were pretty good....some were a little slow.
If it has Ghosts or Vervun hive il read it
