Share Eisenhorn is a series of novels and short stories by Dan Abnett , following the adventures of Inquisitor Gregor Eisenhorn. Eisenhorn was a named character in the game with his own model, as was his antagonist and ally, the Daemonhost Cherubael. No other characters from the game appear, but the types of characters in the game -- Arbiters , Rogue Traders , Deathwatch Space Marines , savants, Mechanicum Magi and so on, are featured as key characters in the series. Inspired by these and the content of the game, Abnett wrote the initial trilogy, with Xenos, the first novel, released at the same time as the game. This is obviously going back always.

Share Eisenhorn is a series of novels and short stories by Dan Abnett , following the adventures of Inquisitor Gregor Eisenhorn.
Eisenhorn was a named character in the game with his own model, as was his antagonist and ally, the Daemonhost Cherubael. No other characters from the game appear, but the types of characters in the game -- Arbiters , Rogue Traders , Deathwatch Space Marines , savants, Mechanicum Magi and so on, are featured as key characters in the series.
Inspired by these and the content of the game, Abnett wrote the initial trilogy, with Xenos, the first novel, released at the same time as the game. This is obviously going back always. And he sent to me simply because he thought I might be interested in and inspired by the images in Gaunt. And it showed the detail — the elaborate detail — of imperial life. It was, and I have used it.
But at the time I looked at it and leafed through it — it was half complete, as I said photocopies and bits and pieces, brilliant spot illustrations and stuff like that.
And I did, and it proved to be enormously successful to such the extent that the Eisenhorn books are regarded as a bit of a primer to get you into 40K.
Know the one? Guy with a scalp full of cables, a black fur coat, a double-headed eagle familiar on his shoulder, a gold-chased bolt pistol in his hand? This was a rich seam indeed, full of wonderful baroque material. And that was it. I visited the Studio, and got great help and advice from the game developers, particularly Gav Thorpe. Then I got to work.
This was a glimpse behind the lines at the internal complexity of the Imperium. A chance to visit worlds that were not levelled by war, and see how the billions of Imperial citizens lived. And also to find out what evils stalked them, even in the shadows of their own hive cities. It is not clear if the novels and stories are written in the same period, after Hereticus, or are, as may be more likely, written intermittently during and after the events of the series.
Over the course of the novels, Eisenhorn loses almost all his friends and allies by not only using the tools of Chaos to fight and defeat Chaos, but by becoming blind to the danger of using them - seen in the change of his relationship to and ultimate dependence upon the daemonhost Cherubael.

Subsequent to the conclusion of Hereticus, Abnett wrote the Ravenor series of novels and short stories published and set in the years following M41 , utilising several recurring characters from the Eisenhorn series.

I recall enjoying the various stories, but did it set my world on fire? Dan Abnett has unfanthomably vast vocabulary and the way he composes the sentences just made my spine tingle with joy. I knew almost nothing about the Warhammer 40k world, so there was a large learning curve. Lastly, let me say the second short story included is the reason I often feel sorry for tie-in writers though I know they choose the world they write in. Oct 21, Eisrnhorn Lynd rated it it was amazing Shelves: Part of what I really enjoy is the way in which it was founded as a grim satire of the utopian sci-fi of the early-mid s. But Abnett was fairly consistently named as a good writer of fun sci-fi, so I gave this a go.
