Format: Mass Market Paperback
Red Snow (A Gotrek & Felix story) by Nathan Long

The caravan master tells Slayer Gotrek Gurnisson that there is always a fight whenever they travel to market. Seeking a glorious death in battle, Gotrek and his human companion, Felix Jaeger, agree to guard the caravaners. The trek is interrupted by an avalanche. In the aftermath, a priest from a nearby village offers them shelter and tells them of a terrible monster that walks the hills.

**** FOUR STARS! This short adventure will help tide over the legion of Gotrek and Felix fans until the next full-length novel is released. Gotrek's battle against the yeti is told with Nathan Long's unique flair and will entice new readers to look up past titles. A well executed story. ****

The Assassin's Dilemma by David Earle

Clan Famin's Warlord, Glut, hires the services of Clan Eshin to pave the way for an assault on a human encampment. Sneeq Foulblade, a skaven assassin, and his gutter runners agree to infiltrate the camp and assassinate the human engineer. Shortly afterward, Grey Seer Qik demands Sneeq NOT to kill the engineer. To abandon Glut's contract would mean Sneeq's death, but Qik vows the same should it be completed. Can the skaven assassin find a way to survive his decision?

**** FOUR STARS! It is always interesting to view events from the view point of the skaven race. David Earle did very good work on this short story. ****

Rest Eternal by Anthony Reynolds

Calard is a Questing Knight of the Lady (of the Lake). It has been five years since the Bretonnian Knight had taken up his Questing Vows for the Grail. His journey now takes him to a small village located high in the peaks of the Grey Mountains. Calard agrees to slay a wyvern that has been tormenting the villagers.

With a mix of short stories, a few of which relate to characters in other ongoing series, Death and Dishonour deals with exactly what it says in the title. Tales of revenge, battle, faith and fidelity, the quality varies somewhat, though nothing here had me flicking through the pages with a hiss of impatience or a huff of disgruntled despair.

I found the stories at the start of the book more engaging, which probably meets most people's expectations - you draw your potential reader in the with the good stuff, right. However, I found the Felix and Gotrek story, which I expected to be a highlight, somewhat disappointing. As I'm currently running a role-playing game set in Warhammer's Old World, I picked this up for some flavour and to get me in the mood. The first story managed that easily, and later tales of vengeance against chaos or the corrupting power of magic got me in just the right place.

Not the best game-related fiction, but the stories hit the spot for those wanting grim grime, blood and battle - without the promise of a happy ending.

Format: Paperback
Death And Dishonour, edited by Alex Davis, Nick Kyme and Lindsey Priestley, is an anthology of 9 short stories published by the Black Library set in the Warhammer Fantasy universe. This anthology aims to give the reader an introduction to the Warhammer world and has stories that try to involve as much as the Warhammer Fantasy realm as possible.

This anthology features stories from a wide range of authors, including Black Library legends such as C.L. Werner, established authors such as Anthony Reynolds and newcomers such as David Earle. As such, many of the stories vary in quality and content but they are almost all of a very high standard. However, depending on your writing style preference there may be an occasional story that you may not like. For example, I did not enjoy The Last Ride Of Heiner Rothstein by Ross O'Brien, as I found it extremely difficult to follow. One positive point about this anthology is that the shortness of the stories make this book very accessible and can point the reader in the direction of authors or series that they had previously not heard of or considered.

Overall, this is a fantastic anthology that would serve as a great introduction to the Warhammer Fantasy universe. It should also appeal to many existing Warhammer Fantasy fans who are looking for a more accessible book or some lighter reading material. If you have enjoyed this book then I would recommend the novels, Reiksguard (Empire Army),
