Time:11:16 am
Hi, all. I will be at San Diego Comic Con from Thursday afternoon until Sunday evening, mostly just wandering around and spending too much money.

I will, however, be attending one event. I am a nominee for the 2010 Scribe Awards for Shamanslayer, and will be attending the Scribe Awards Ceremony, then participating in the panel afterwards. The Scribe Awards will be held on Friday afternoon from 5:00 to 6:30 in room 4, wherever that is. HERE are the details from the programming guide. If you can make it, I would love to see you there, and if you happen to bring any of my books, I would be happy to sign them, as I don't have an official signing this year.

Yup, I saw it already. (I spend way too much time googling my own stuff. Heh.) Thanks for the heads up though!

Just finished Bloodborn...after that, and having read your Gotrek & Felix novels, I'm thinking I have to get the Blackhearts omnibus. Keep up the good work.

Thank you very much! I'm glad you enjoyed it, and thanks for the Amazon review. I really appreciate the support!

And yes, please give the Blackhearts a try. After Bloodborn, they are the books I am proudest of.

I doubt he will in my books, but you might check out the Thanquol series that C. L. Werner is writing. He might show up there.

Hello,

Just read both of them, great stuff, worthy successors to William King.

Shaman Slayer was especially powerful, the Knight's squire turning into a Beastman and when he died was really gut wrenching...great stuff....

A few questions:

1. Are we going to see Kat again beyond Zombie Slayer?

2. Will Kat suffer a fate similiar to Ortwin? That will be interesting, she hunts down Beastmen but gets turned into one herself, maybe even willingly.

3. Are we going to see the Blackhearts meet up with Gotrek and Felix?

4. Are we going to see characters from other books get mention or meet up with Gotrek and Felix?(eg. Genevieve, Zavant Konninger)

5. If you want some good warhammer novel on vampires, read the short story of Gordon Rennie called Politics of the Shadow in his book Zavant

http://perkunos.wordpress.com/2009/10/25/zavant-gordon-rennie/

One of the best warhammer short stories ever written. I'd like to see the Tilean widow appear in your novels.

Hi, Anonymous, glad you liked the books. Here are some answers to your questions.

1 - Yes, Kat will be back.
2 - I'm not telling.
3 - I would love to do that, but I don't know if BL would allow it.
4 - Some, maybe, but probably not the ones you mentioned.
5 - Thanks! I'll look for it.

Just finished the omnibus in like 3 days....yeah,...great stuff....Reiner rocks...I hope these guys come back.

Funny too about that douchebag(pardon my french) Manfred. Interesting on when they go back to his service. Talk about the employer scheming against the employee.

Great stuff. Keep up the good work.

Finished it in three days. Great action:

A few questions:

are we going to see Bellyrith and Claudia again?

Bellyrith and Claudia's fate are quite fitting. One got turned into a deformed mutant, the other went insane.... I wonder what kind of punishment they reserved for Claudia.

There is a mention of the veiled one and old man of the mountain...Araby? We going to see the velied one in the future?

Hi Anonymous,

Glad you liked it! I haven't decided if I'm going to bring back Belryeth or Claudia yet, but the Veiled One and the Old Man of the Mountain will make an appearance someday - though I can't yet say when, or where.

Wow just finished it, another great warhammer gotrek and felix novel.

BTW, rated your novels highly at the amazon.ca and com websites.

I'm preety sure Kemmler will be back, evil evil villain, complete douchebag.

Again a few questions:

1. What will be the next title of the next gotrek book? Dwarfslayer? (they are going to the grimnir shrine, who will they fight next Chaos Dwarfs? I'd like to see how Gotrek feels about the Chaos dwarfs, probably hates them the most.

2. As for Kat, she'll probably survive & recover, anyways just a suggestion, would it be ironically brutal that she gets turned into a werewolf? Felix's loves seem to be turning into supernatural creatures or dead or insane. She fights beastmen, gets turned into a beast herself.Sort of.

Werewolves in Warhammer fantasy are found mainly in Norsca. They are either pure werewolves: Children of Ulric or Chaos tainted werewolves: people granted the power to turn into a beast by Chaos.

Hey there's an idea, werewolfslayer...hahaha. I hope I am giving you ideas.

Thanks, Anonymous,

Glad you liked it, and thanks for posting a review on Amazon. That is always welcome.

In answer to your questions:

1 - I don't know what the next title will be. We're still working it out.

2 - That's an interesting idea. Thanks!

An interesting subplot. Gotrek has to ally with orcs and goblins to fight Chaos Dwarves...isn't this the supreme irony.

How about corrupted Slayers...

I wonder if all these anonymous posts are by the same anonymous person, or different anonymous persons? If only there was some way to identify one's self in a reply.

Signed,
