New Heresy Fiction!

‘Good news, everyone!’ as Professor Farnsworth would say. Today sees the release of some new fiction of mine. Black Library has been releasing short stories - each a thousand words - every day of the week for two weeks now. There are fifteen in total, one to celebrate each of the fifteen years Black Library has been publishing fiction. There are some great stories in the selection from both new authors and million-selling Black Library veterans. You can find the entire selection here.

My short story is called Army of One. It is the only one of the selection to contribute to the New York Times Bestselling Horus Heresy series and therefore a must for Heresy fans. Here’s the blurb:


As civil war blazes across the galaxy, the hive world of Proxima Apocryphis turns traitor and Malcador the Sigillite despatches punishment in the form of a living weapon…


A Horus Heresy short story from Rob Sanders.

‘Rob Sanders proves that the most important battles are those fought behind the scenes by the men and women who remain unknown and unremembered…’ – Laurie Goulding"

'Tremendously exciting - has a tone and language that's both poetic and brutally direct.' - Graham McNeill

And here's what I had to say about the story on the BL blog. So get on over to the Black Library site – found here – and pick up a piece of the Heresy for the very reasonable price of 0.79p Oh, and a big thank you to Rachel Docherty for the cool cover.

I like its suspense and how it ended, reminded me of the line from the Bhagavad Gita "Now, I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds." You injected some character in an Eversor Assassin who by their very nature are difficult to flesh out as round characters, much like the World Eaters.
