… as I’ve only just discovered, is The Best of Hammer and Bolter Year One. This was released as an e-book, but has now been committed to paper for all you traditionalists/collectors out there. It’s a hell of a book, too, with buckets of bolter-chewed content and an awesome cover of a Silver Skulls Space Marine – only fitting since Sarah Cawkwell, Silver Skulls specialist extraordinaire, has three stories in the collection (she’s certainly prolific). “What about Steve Parker stories?” you reluctantly inquire, knowing already that I probably wouldn’t be writing this post if I weren’t featured at least once. Well, I’m incredibly honoured to have both my previous Hammer and Bolter stories selected for the collection. That’s right, both Exhumed (Deathwatch) and Survivor (Imperial Guard… sort of) are featured in this hefty tome. Not quite as many as Sarah, but not too shabby. Of course, Exhumed is already available as a stand-alone e-book (HERE) for those who would rather pick and choose. And word is that Survivor will be getting a solo release very soon, so keep your eyes peeled for that one.
