The Best of Hammer and Bolter is on its way

For the first time in a physical format - and 640 pages long at that! - the Keepers of the Black Library are proud to present the best stories from the first twelve issues of Hammer and Bolter magazine.

The Table of Contents is as follows:

I think you'll agree that's quite a lot of stories (including a fair few by Black Library rising star Sarah Cawkwell). You may also have happened to notice that one of the stories amongst that little lot is the Warhammer tale Sir Dagobert’s Last Battle, written by Yours Truly.

The Best of Hammer and Bolter: Volume 1 will be available to buy from this July, but if you can't wait that long to read Sir Dagobert’s Last Battle (assuming you've not read it already, of course) then you can download it here, along with the rest of Hammer and Bolter issue 9.

I got a chance to read this sucker at BLL!2012 yesterday and it is the heaviest and therefore best book I've seen so far this year.

Also, "Sir Dagobert's Last Battle" rocked.
