Does the Horus Heresy series count in this regard? 30+ books (some good, some bad) that details a major area of the background.

Are there any particular factions you particularly want to read around?

Not much point reading Atlas Infernal if you're especially interested in Orks...

I recommend the Ciaphas Cain novells for a very different and unusual look on 40k.

Aside from HHeresy and the above, luckily BL has everything digitized so you can get ebooks, or try and get on Amazon.com. Not sure how it is abroad but in US often pay $1 + $4 shipping on old stuff.

Lord of Night
Gaunt's Ghost series
Inquisitor Eisenhorn or Ravenor (Dan Abnett)
Helsreach
Deathwatch by Steve Parker

Oh, so many, but start with any of these I suggest. The Emperor's Gift, like anything from ADB, is great.

I'm a Black Library nut so shoot me a message if you have any questions or trouble finding these books in any format.
Happy reading!

The Inquisition War trilogy usually gets high praise, although it's an old one.

The Space Wolves, Salamanders, and Ultramarines series. For Chaos the Night Lords series.

Dead Man Walking (or is it men?) You want to see a book where the characters become dehumanised like any war should, until all soul is gone, then that's the one

Any of the Ciaphas Cain series is worth reading, it's probably one of the best series in the black library if not the best.

If you can find it, a good anthology is What Price Victory

They are probably getting ready to release a new Omnibus.

Unsurprisingly, I really like the Space Wolf trilogy about Ragnar Blackmane. :)

I'm slowly collecting the Horus Heresy books, mostly out of order to my annoyance. But I wanted to mention, I noticed barnes&noble.com had quite a few more books of 40k available than I've seen locally. Ymmv, especially if you actually live somewhere with a decent bookstore =/

Atlas Infernal
Fire Caste
Xenology


Fire Caste was brilliant

Eisenhorn
Ravenor

Both series are available in Omnibus and IMHO are by far the best things published in the 40K universe (i.e. they are pretty good books full stop, not just good 40k books).

I'm actually surprised they haven't been mentioned more in the thread.

Talon of Horus is pretty great if you want something for chaos.

Any of the Eisenhorn or Ravenor books are good.
