Mace: Will you be writing anything more of the Thousand Sons in the future?

" "
GM: I think theres certainly scope for another one, but it wouldnt be for a while. When theres so many new avenues to explore, its often counter-intuitive to go back to folk youve dealt with before. The main beats of their story has been told (as its known anyway) and the main biggie of the Rubric doesnt happen until after the Heresy. I became very attached to the Thousand Sons over the course of the book, so Id be surprised if I dont go back to them before its all over. Id love to do a 40k story of Ahriman, where in his mind hes still loyal, and is still fighting to prove that Chaos can be mastered and that the Emperor was wrong to chastise Magnus. Of course, hes lost sight of the horrors hes inflicting along the way, but thats Chaos for you

Mace: I would love to know if there will be another Iron Warriors book. Do you think the real Fulgrim is still around in the 40k universe, still trapped somewhere inside his painting?

GM: I suspect that Honsou is too bad to stay down for long, but how, where or if hell return with an Iron Warriors book is something Ill need to think about. If theres a story that hed be perfect for, then I think hell come back. But I wont bring him back just for the sake of it, only if theres a good reason for him to be strutting around. As to Fulgrim, his presence in the portrait is something I quite fancy addressing in the Heresy series. Maybe some Emperors Children find out about it and, finding the idea repellent, try to do something about it. Not sure, but I think its a nice is he/isnt he dangling hook.

Mace: Will we have more Ventris novels?

GM: You will indeed. The Chapters Due was NOT the last book, merely the end of an arc. I have the next three sketched out in my head already, and I cant wait to get started on them, though its likely to be a little while as other projects elbow their way to the front of the schedule queue.
