Well apologies if you missed this as I planned to mention it a few days ago but, I forgot.

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.

 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.
You can see the Black Library page here.

The currently available stories are:-
