The Black Library Advent Calendar Returns To Spread Grim Dark Cheer

December 7, 2017 by dracs

This December, Black Library are once again offering their subscription-based advent calendar, bring you quick reads and audio dramas from the Horus Heresy, Warhammer 40,000, and Warhammer Age of Sigmar.

Black Library Advent Calendar

Each day leading up to Christmas, subscribers are treated to a new story, featuring the mighty heroes and nefarious villains from the Warhammer universes.

So far, the stories have followed the sorcerer Ahriman as he contends with a Necron Cryptek, the stalwart defenders of the Imperial Fists as they await the traitors on Terra and Stormcast Eternals facing off against Khorne Bloodbound in Shadespire.

It looks to be a good selection of fiction, provided by some of the best of Black Library’s writers.

Doombound

My interest is particularly piqued by the Primarch stories. The Primarchs are undoubtedly among the most interesting characters in Warhammer fiction, with godlike power, but very human failings. It’s always interesting to get new looks at them, and I hope that some of these start stepping outside of the Horus Heresy.
