The Burden of Loyalty
Edited by Laurie Golding.
A brand-new anthology of Horus Heresy short fiction featuring stories by Dan Abnett, Chris Wraight, Aaron Dembski-Bowden, John French and more.
As the darkness of mankind's internecine war slowly consumes the galaxy, those who still serve the Throne are forced to fight for both their own survival and the continued existence of everything they hold dear. With the threat of the Warmaster Horus' fleet looming ever closer to Terra, if will fall to such heroes to halt the tide, but the enemies arrayed against them are powerful and the burden of loyalty is great... This Horus Heresy anthology contains two novella-length tales - The Wolf King by Chris Wraight and Cybernetica by Rob Sanders - as well as six short stories by popular Black Library authors including Dan Abnett, Aaron Dembski-Bowden, Gav Thorpe and John French.
Laurie Goulding was born in London, grew up in Burton-upon-Trent, and then experienced a slight regression in Winchester before finally settling in Nottingham. As the original director of Black Library TV, he would regularly make the authors uncomfortable by sticking a camera in their faces – now he achieves the same effect by wielding a red pen as a member of the editorial team.
Warhammer 40,000: The Horus Heresy consists of fifty-four primary works, and includes one additional book that complement the series but is not considered mandatory reads. The current recommended reading order for the series is provided below.
