I see much of my own obsessive personality in Captain Janus Draik as he enacts his desparate plan to lay claim to the mysterious Blackstone Fortress. This story of adventure in the far future, despite its lack of polish, will forever be a favorite of mine.

Vaults of Obsidian (Warhammer 40,000) By Darius Hinks Cover Image
Email or call for price
ISBN: 9781789990805
Published: Games Workshop - May 12th, 2020

Thrilling short tales that will transport you to a dark future and the farthest reaches of space, where intrepid aventurers, alien merchants, and twisted renegades gather in search of ancient technology or just plain fame and fortune.

This book is easy and hard to read at the same time. The content is upsetting but deeply captivating and, unfortunately, very relevant. Be prepared for a story that can be brutal as it grapples with the topic of school shootings and proves to be a thought-provoking and emotionally work of fiction.
