The Heresy Grows… A.K.A: Dave shows off his own small Black Library collection

A few months ago I posted “A little look of what I have been up too” , in here I posted about my move from South Africa to The Netherlands and a few pics of my updated library. Since then I had to go back to S.A and Milou has come to fetch me. I touched down on some bad news we got regarding our luggage. I touched down on that with How Have You Been. Due to this minor setback, I requested some books through NG and spoke about them Here. As that post was on its way to be published we recieved our first suitcase which held a lot of books๐Ÿ™‚. Before the week was over we recieved the last two cases (this also contained more books…).

Since we did not know if we were going to see our luggage, apart from the three books I got from NG, we used the last of the book gift vouchers which we got at our wedding.

Lets show you some books๐Ÿ˜ฌ.

False Gods is the second book in Warhammer 40K’s Horus Heresy. I have been holding of from delving into the series after being told I should read the first three books in order. I’m happy I have this now.

Starting from the right, we have Galaxy In Flames, this is the third book in HH, go figure๐Ÿ™‚. Hereticus is also a third book, but this is in Dan Abnett’s Eisenhorn series, of which I have the fist two books.

Onward to the shelves shall we?

Right at the top is my Warhammer fantacy collection, these consist of five books in the Gotrek and Felix series. Then we have a few memorable characters set in the time before Old World gets destroyed. Then we see Death of Old World and what lies beyond that is the start of the Realmgate Wars. Realmgate I am not in a hurry to pick up yet cause I need to read a few books before finaly saying goodbye to Old World. Next to the Realmgate books I have 4 books that aint Warhammer, these are from a series called Forgotten Realms: Waterdeep, each book deals with a certain town or city within a place called Waterdeep. In the pick I am missing one book, this is due to my wife reading it at the time.

Moving one shelf down:

Last year when I was still living and working in S.A, I decided to subscribe to the Warhammer 40K Legends collection. This is a partworks collection consisting out of 80 books in total. I believe I am just over 20 of the 80. I do not know if I will ever be able to complete this collection as it is only running in S.A, U.K, Australia and New Zeeland. We shall see as time progresses.

My next shelf is all 40K books. It starts with Horus Heresy, note that the two books following Hurus Rising have not been added. This is due to the fact that we recieved the books only later. We then have a few books in the Guant’s Ghosts series by Dan Abnett. Then whe have some Ultramarines series by Graham McNeill. After that its all a mixed collection of other 40K settings. There is one from The Beast Arises series and two books from the Priests of Mars series that I have already reviewed here on my blog. It ends on Cacharodons:Red Tithe, which I am working on a review for later next week.

On the shelf next to the Warhammer 40k Legends collection, I have these Space Marines Battles novels. If some of you can remember back to a previous book haul, you will see the four new books are now added to this collection. I am pleased with these. I am pleased with it all in general.

Moving along to some non Warhammerbooks:

These are all a mixed batch aswell.on the left you can see the two Mike Brooks books that I have reviewed, I was currently bussy reading Dark Deeds at the time the foto was taken. Review should be up somewhere next week aswell. There are two Dune books which I have yet to make time for. Then we have Eve which I am currently busy with, it is 520 pages, so might take me the rest of this month to finnish. Up untill the last Gears of War book these are all sci-fi, the rest is all historic fantacy or fiction, I am not sure yet, have a lot of reading to do still.

I hope you all enjoyed the tour

Have a great day๐Ÿค˜๐Ÿป

      1. I dunno.. *maybe*? I’d guess it’d be close either way. Like yourself, I’ve got a fair few Warhams novels, but far from an exhaustive collection, and yours is pretty impressive (to me, anyway!)

      2. Welcome! We spent a few hours cleaning up and culling crap today, so I might be able to get a photo or two up sooner than I expected. I’ve also got the added benefit of a lifetime in one city and not having just moved around the globe when it comes to amassing a collection of books!

  1. I really like the WH Legends too. Have you thought about looking on Ebay or Amazon or Bookdepository to fill in the gaps? Might be worth it if you really want to complete it.

    This was a great post. Shelfies always do it for me! ๐Ÿ˜€

    1. Thank you for stopping by. Rvery book comes with an introduction as to why it was included in the series it also. Comes with great artwork. If you’ve not read my review of Horus Rising, I suggest having a look to see what one can expect

  2. Can’t believe I’m only reading this now, but that is quite a great collection!! Might have to do something like this myself soon, actually! What are the Waterdeep novels like? It’s been ages since I read a D&D book, but I do like the Lords of Waterdeep game!!

    1. Never heard of lords of waterdeep. I liked the books enough to have kept them all these years tho. Each book takes place within a certain part of Waterdeep itself. I am planning on doing a re-read for the blog sometime. Do not know when tho…
