Your Favorite Short Stories, by Author
Roomsky posted a topic in + THE BLACK LIBRARY +So this was intended to be entirely distinct from my Favorite Works, by Author thread, but people posting short stories there won't stop me from erecting a thread dedicated to it here (in no small part because several awesome Fraters did obey the rules). The rules are as follows: 1: Short stories only, no novels or novellas 2: This is a thread to promote positivity, please only be negative if you feel you need to put a favorite piece into perspective 3: You must have read more than one short by the author in question, else-wise the endorsement is meaningless 4: You don't need to explain why it's your favorite, but it might make the discussion more interesting! As before, I'll start with 3: Matthew Farrer: After Desh`ea The beginning of Angron's illustrious rise from a cardboard cut-out into an actual character. Perhaps not an essential read, it's full of character and does what I always admire in giving it's small cast very distinct voices, differentiated by how they speak as well as how they act. It sums up everything you need to know about Angron in a very tight package. Nick Kyme: Imperfect The first story focusing on Fulgrim with anything approaching restraint. We see a still arrogant, but troubled Fulgrim that struggles with his inability to turn Ferrus. It sort of retroactively improves on Fulgrim as well, showing that much of the character's missteps are indeed due to overconfidence rather than ineptitude. Solid all around. David Annandale: The Binary Succession A gripping little tale that was incidently the first time I even noticed that "Mechanicum" and "Adeptus Mechanicus" were even to denote different entities. The action isn't overdone, the characters are realistically flawed (to the point where any sides failure is a possibility), and finally gives the tech-priests a chance to flex their muscles after being sidelined for so long. The audio's excellent production quality is just icing on the cake.
