I am really surprised that McNeill isn’t writing any.

Also who is the classiest/most refined Black Library writer and why is it Chris Wraight?

Well, he did write an excellent "pure" Emperor's Children character in Path of Heaven, so it's only natural he has class and refinement. 


Therefore, I conclude, Valve should announce Half Life 2: Episode 3.

They all look menacing as hell, especially Aaron, John and Chris. Though with the amount of beloved characters Aaron has killed off his is kinda fitting...

 

Edit:

 

Hah, they even metion it in the article: "not to mention his penchant for making you love characters right before he brutally murders them, there’s no doubt Aaron will add great things to the Siege."

I have never seen a man in a flannel shirt look more intimidating laugh.png

 

Just realised that its the cup, its full of the tears of us readers after he murders the characters we love the most.

Cool to see the line-up confirmed. There aren't any in there I -didn't- expect, but I am surprised to see only 6 (I was really expecting Graham McNeill to do one, even with his new job and home, since he's contributed so much to the series overall). I'm curious whether this means some will be doing two books, or whether the original "8 novels" is actually going to translate to "6 novels and 2 anthologies".

 

If there is some doubling up, I would guess it would be Haley and French, since they're writing the first two and are generally fast writers (Haley especially).

 

Disappointed that Thorpe got in, but McNeil didn't. What does McNeil do now?

I believe he was hired by Riot Games and moved to the US. As far as I know, this doesn't mean he's completely severed ties with BL/GW or anything (this happened before he finished The Crimson King for example), but naturally it would mean he has much less time for that.

Yup. He was hired by Riot Games (aka: The creators of MOBA League of Legends) as their lead writer for worldbuilding and story.

 

So he got hired to do what he does best :lol:

Eyup. Ever since they decided the game itself (yes, the game you play) is non-canon to the story, they've been working at it. Even though I don't play the game much anymore, I keep up on the new releases for Champions and lore. I can tell Graham is cracking the whip on their writers because what was once a kind of 'meh' story is now getting really good.

Nor me. It’s weird how some people have emails, at least one person has their copy, and some people haven’t heard anything.

I like how all of the authors non verbally pose like “we’ve seen some crazy :cuss, we know too much, SANITY IS FOR THE WEAK.”

I’m weirdly happy to see Camba-Diaz in the roster. It’s good he’s not missin a fistin.
