Christmas List Help Needed

Werit has his Christmas List all ready, so now, since I always do whatever he does, I need to work on mine.

But I need help!

I’ve been reading William King’s Gotrek & Felix Warhammer books, and loving them. However I have the last one sitting on the top of my “to read” pile. Where do I go next? I know there are more Gotrek & Felix books written by Nathan Long, but I’ve heard they aren’t as good. But I don’t know if that literally means “not as good” or if it means “Bad.” So should I ask for these? And if not, are there any other good Warhammer novels out there? Recommendations would be very much appreciated!

As far as games go, I have Fallout 3 (XBox360) and Valkyria Chronicles (PS3) on the list. I’ve gone back and forth and back and forth on whether to ask for Fallout 3 on the PC or the 360, and finally decided 360 just because when I sit down at the PC I always end up playing an MMO.

Might need to add the blu-ray versions of Firefly and Serenity to my list. And I could really used the DVD version of Blackadder: The Complete Collection. I have it on VHS but I don’t even have a VHS player hooked up any more.

But book ideas!! A Christmas without books isn’t even a Christmas! (I’m so material!) So please, help me out with some Warhammer novel ideas!

  1. Nathan Long is shite at taking over people’s stories and carry them on. He confuses the characters already developed to the point where it’s teeth gnashing. But then I was a fan of Gotrek + Felix before the novels so I took it a bit harsher than others! 😛

    Long has his own books out and their… ok. Nothing hugely special currently. I would recommend reading Kings other books from the Games Workshop range (mainly the Space Wolf series before he left the Black Library) and even take a peek at some of Dan Abnet’s stuff. Admittedly it’s Warhammer 40,000 but they’re still decent enjoyable reads.

    There’s a truly awesome set of 3 books as well from the Fantasy range. I forget their names, it’s the latest Vampire series they have going and yeah… it’s anti-hero heaven.

  2. Yup, I read the Conan books while I was playing AoC.:) Thanks for the suggestion of Name of the Wind, Werit!

    Thanks for the input Shamutanti; I think I’ll pass on the Long Gotrek & Felix books, at least for now. Maybe after I’ve been away for 6 months or so I’ll try him.

    These Vampire books sound interesting though. I’ll see if I can track them down.

  3. Animal Crossing for the Wii.

    Not a book, but I plan to pick it up for the kids and get our Wii online and I want to come visit your town. 😀
