Anyways, in the buildup to the launch of the new Space Marines Codex (I'm sure you've heard all about it by now) Black Library have decided to launch a new Space Marine Short (1000 words or so) every day. They're on story number 6 today so doing the maths I'm only what - 6 days late with this revelation.
You can read about it over on the Black Library blog here.
‘I have an idea,’ I said. That’s how it started. That’s how it always starts, before the deadlines kick in and the fear grips me. It’s always an idea.You can see the Black Library page here.
In this case, the idea seemed simple. Codex: Space Marines was coming out, so why didn’t we do a series of micro-short stories to accompany it? Why not emulate our Advent Calendar from December 2012 and do a story every day for a few weeks, each about different Space Marine Chapters? ‘Yes,’ said everyone immediately. ‘Go on and get that sorted then, Graeme.’
Ah, there’s the fear.
I joke, of course. Gathering these stories was such an absolute delight that I am currently doing the same again for the 2013 Advent Calendar. But I digress. I’m here to talk about Space Marines: Angels of Death. What is it? Well, starting today, you will be able to buy a brand new Space Marine micro-short story from blacklibrary.com every single day until the 26th of September.
The currently available stories are:-
