    One thought on “Deathwing

    1. Chris on said:

      Some very decent short stories in here (though a few that aren't so good, namely the first one) but then you have to remember that this is from the beginning of 40K and back when it first started so some inconsistencies in the stories are to be expected.Otherwise, very good.

    2. Owen on said:

      The short stories in this collection vary in quality from excellent to embarassingly awful, but if you find a copy it's worth picking up just for Storm Constantine's Lacrymata, one of the best stories ever set in the WH40k universe.

    3. Jason Hoff on said:

      Great way for new fans to get a little background on the 40k universe. Dan Abnett, Ian Watson, Gav Thorpe, and Graham McNeill's stories were outstanding!

      An uneven mix of stories. I liked these ones most:PestilenceUnforgivenThe Alien Beast WithinWarped StarsDevil's Marauders

      This book had two printings. First by Boxtree in 1990 with only seven stories and the latter with nine. Those two short shories I reviewed hereThis was an anbiguous book with great stories and some who I didn't enjoy. Some die-hard fans would say I am heretic and who cares, right? 1) Deathwing by Bryan Ansell & William King - This tale is where Deathwing company was born. Here we learn what Deathwing is all about*. Here we also learn that the Dark Angels were based on the american indians. T [...]

      This was my favourite of the Warhammer books that I read. The short stories were mostly very good. Deathwing by Bryan Ansell and William King was an interesting look at a Space Marine squad that all came from one primitive planet and how they had to go back and save their planet from Genestealers and factories. It was very well done with lots of stories inside stories and had interesting world building. Warped Stars was an Ian Watson story about a young boy with psychic abilities who had been co [...]

      Solid Warhammer 40k fiction. I borrowed this from a friend and read it mainly to get into the mindset to play Deathwatch but it's fairly enjoyable pulpy scifi. If you really dig the universe or want to learn more, worth a read. If scifi (particularly the grim far future xenophobia type) then you're better passing this up. I might go back and read more WH40k sometimeEDIT: Dan Abnett is a good write in this universe and I really like another of Charles Stross's books (Accelerando). O, and I love t [...]

      I read this when I was ignorant of the 40K canon, and the immediate result was disappointment, followed by an extreme dislike for the Dark Angels. The stories were not that interesting in of themselves, and assumed a greater knowledge of the setting than I had at the time. It was a lackluster first impression for the otherwise engrossing 40K franchise.

    9. Robin on said:

      nice background for the origins of the deathwing. and other short stories.

    10. Taddow on said:

      Great collection of short stories based in the Warhammer 40,000 world. Some are better than others.

    11. William Ely on said:

      Some decent short stories based in the 40k universe. Some were great and some were mediocre.

    12. Christian on said:

      A collection of earlier 40K stories that are short and sweet. I like it best when these stories are not overthought. I mean, it's 40K. Give the readers what they expect and this collection delivers.

      This is basically an anthology of stories surrounding the Dark Angels Chapter of the space marinesFour stars goes to the short story of the same title
