So, for my birthday, got some gift cards for Barnes and Noble. Went to the local one in Newington and...

So I now own my very first bits of Warhammer 40K merchandise.

I've read Fight or Flight, For the Emperor and am almost finished with Echoes of the Tomb. And I must say, these are cracking good reads! Cain is just... sometimes I hear Yakety Sax in the background. :D

Yes, the Cain novels are the lighter side of dystopia and eternal damnation. :happydevil:

Like any other franchise, there are the good (Ike Mitchell and Dan Abnett) and the bad (like C.S. Goto.) There is little WH40k fiction with the tongue-in-cheek nature of the Cain books, though.

I think I've got one of the good ones, Mikey. :D In some scenes I can almost hear Yakety Sax in the background.

lol I meant Sandy Mitchell is one of the good ones. I have no comment on the disembodied music in your head.

Rather a good thing. After reading a bit about the Necrons, I've got Walk Like an Egyptian and Steve Martin's King Tut on autoplay. :D
