If I was to nitpick, either the pictures or descriptions for weeks four and five on the site are the wrong way around :shifty:


It's a decent idea, but I don't know if including books which aren't the first in their respective series is necessarily a great idea (Warriors of Ultramar).

A logically minded person might assume that the images on the spines relate to the content of the collection, so it's probably possible to make some reasonable assumptions as to what will be included in the future.


EDIT: I decided to take the survey on their website. Question 1 was did I own an issue of the collection. I said no, and then there weren't any more questions :(

Actually tempted, the price is all right, the free gifts solid and the book spacing just enough to keep me busy.

Pretty disgruntled this is UK only.

It's probably just spine-art like this:

GW going back to newsstands with something is news by itself

I think I'd bite for this, if it was available here. And with english originals rather than the german translations.

UK only. Would be nice to see something that is Rest of World only for a change.

Got this email "Because of the unprecedented demand we don't have enough stock available to be able to immediately fulfil your order. We understand you will be disappointed by this news and as a result we will be offering you the first 2 novels The Last Heretic and Xenos free of charge when more stock arrives."

So it sounds they it sold pretty well, and i aint complaining on delay vs free books ( so 12 pounds off plus the gifts so far, plus the original free book) :) .

I got the first two books, and a letter saying they were both free but the series has been canceled.

So one poster was saying there was unprecedented demand but another says the series has been cancelled. Intriguing

Both of those are me, you might notice a two month difference between posts. I have not looked into the whys or hows too much, signed up, got email, then books turned up with letter in the box, sad i wont get gifts, but did not cost me anything and got 2 books :) . And thats, that.

The website also has an email newsletter thingy but says "Sorry We’re no longer taking subscriptions" on the landing page. Wow.

Thanks Nagash, I don't seem to have that letter. You are right though they did say demand was high at first. Bit of a shame really but yes, 2 free books

Maybe only some accounts got canceled? Those that signed up after a certain point?

Could be. I just suspect I am in the same position as you. The box they came in had no other info or packing materials. So I am just assuming that they forgot to put the letter in. I could be wrong but won't get my hopes up.

Thanks for the clarification nagash. It does seem a bit of a mystery. Shame if it's gone as it seemed like a nice series
