Horus Heresy (novels)
The Horus Heresy is an ongoing series of science fantasy books written by various authors. The series takes place during the Horus Heresy, a fictional galaxy-spanning civil war occurring 10,000 years prior to the far future setting of Games Workshop's Warhammer 40,000 tabletop miniatures wargame. The war is described as a major contributing factor to the game's dystopic environment.
The books are published in several media by the Black Library, a Games Workshop division, with the first title released in April 2006; as of April 2013 the work consisted of 25 published volumes, with more in the pipeline.
The series has developed into a distinct and successful product line for the Black Library; titles have often appeared in bestseller lists, and overall the work has received critical approval despite reservations. It is an established, definitive component of Game Workshop's Horus Heresy sub-brand, and authoritative source material for the entire Warhammer 40,000 shared universe and its continuing development.
