    One thought on “Meduson”

    1. The book adds more to other short stories or ties in with a few of the more recent novels in the series. It was a good look at the Iron Hands legion post-Istvaan and enforces my idea that they are largely total dicks.Some good offerings from giants like Abnett and McNeill. Annandale makes another go at it but makes the mistake of using the wrong name near the end of his tale - I think he originally wrote it for his Atticus character.Wraight follows up on his Torgul Khan character from Scars, whi [...]

    2. Meduson by Dan Abnett:Hot damn, I might have to go out on a limb and say that is one of my favourite stories by Dan Abnett to date! For the first time, we get to see the real Shadrak Meduson, and how he came to be such a prominent figure in the post Istvaan Iron Hands, and boy does he not disappoint! The whole story was phenomenal, getting to see a good chunk of the Iron Hands and how they reacted to the Massacre was awesome, as I feel that Dan Abnett did a pretty damn good job of showing it. Th [...]

    3. One of the best HH anthologies of late. Especially considering it consists of all new stories. Some of them are great, some so-so, but in general it was a good read half a year ago.

    4. You can read the full review over at my blog:shadowhawksshade.wordpressAs I’ve no doubt mentioned before, the story of the Horus Heresy is one of great tragedy, of dreams shattered, of brotherhoods sundered, of oaths broken, of horrors unleashed. The greatest of these horrors was the Dropsite Massacre on the world of Istvaan V, where the loyal legions of the Warmaster Horus ambushed and nearly wiped out three legions loyal to the Emperor. That event unleashed the greatest tragedy of the Heresy [...]

    5. Don't bother. Unless you're a die hard fan of Iron Hands or just HAVE to read everything Horus Heresy. It's advertised as a Dan Abnett title but he just has one middling meh story that's all about dragging this HH cash cow out for as long as possible with as many characters as possible. The rest is standard BL anthology "huh, what's happening with who, wait, nevermind it's over" story format. If that's your thing, great, get this. If not stay away from this and the BL "pay-ahead-of-time for stuf [...]
