Meet Ferrus Manus!

The young man you see here proudly holding copies of both the original edition of my Warhammer 40,000 novel Iron Hands and the PoD update is... (drum-roll please)... wait for it...

FERRUS MANUS!

Yes, seriously! That's his first name! (For those of you not in the know, follow this link.) How cool is that? And what's even cooler, his name was not only inspired by the Primarch of the Iron Hands Legion/Chapter but by my novel as well. I've never had anybody named after a book I've written before (at least not that I know of).

Thanks to Ferrus's dad Gavin for the photos and thank you to Ferrus Manus himself for endorsing my book. (Some suitable reward will be winging its way to you in the post very soon, via Imperial Carrier Cyber-Pigeon.)
