Id like some inclusion of AoS or old fantasy lit, if it would be helpful if I ask 'i really like Josh Reynolds, which of his other warhammmsr and non-warhammer lit should I read' style. He's published 200 stories - I'd love to know what I should read from that.

We all talk heavily about Abnett, etc - but there is no good place on the internet where I can compare his work on Sinester Dexter, Riders of the Dead, Guardians of the Galaxy and Gaunt's Ghosts - and that does suck. Same with other writers with varied corpuses. This can be done without being ott or too off-topic as the topic would be a given author or a given comparison?

Equally much Warhammer lit is written by active participants in reading other genres - it would be nice to be able to bring these in (historical fiction, crime, horror, etc) without it getting deleted/hidden or proclaimed as not relevant to the board.

I think it's possible to do that, with rules, which means keeping a focus but also having a better-informed and better-constructed view of *authors* and *genres*?

You can even have threads like this - https://www.trekbbs....-thread.284087/ - which are quite nice discussions of authors common to a franchise's wider work.


The thread on Tchaikovsy does just that though right? So it is allowed? No?

It will be great to see if as a new author with major bona fides,that does occur when we finally read his works - but so far it's not a deep investigation of his prior works?
Cinema itself is a trick of time — still pictures passed through a focused beam of light at 24 frames per second. We are reminded of that in La Jetée...

The board rules have been reviewed and the suggestion discussed.

 

Both oppose each other and thus, the request will not be granted.

 

This is a 40K related board, simple as it is. It is not about Warhammer Fantasy, Age of Sigmar or other related content.

This is my mod voice. There are many like it, but this one is mine. My mod voice is a means to an end.

Let us avoid it, alright?
