I read them when I can get hold of them (Which, unfortunately is rarely if at all).

Read the 2 horus rising, dark apostle, the 1st in the soul drinkers series (bought the omnibus but i dont think i can bring myself to read the rest, its awful), mid way through ravenor and have the eisenhorn omnibus waiting for when i finish

not sure why, as its usually fantasy not sci-fi i read, but i dont seem to be attracted to the warhammer ones at all

I've read all the Gaunts Ghost books so far; all the Horus Heresy novels up to Fulgrim (which I think was the last one released); the first two Soul Drinkers novels; all the William King Gotrek and Felix novels plus all his Ragnar books. I tried reading Sons of Fenris but stopped when I realised Lee Lightner can't write for feth. I've also read the Eisenhorn omnibus and the first Ravenor plus Farseer and Harlequin. (Really annoyed 'cause the other two books in the Inquisition War trilogy are out of print, I want them dammit.)

I've read: Horus Rising, False Gods, and I am currently reading Galaxy In Flames (from the Horus heresy series), and Rogue Star by Andy Hoare. All four really good books.
I'm going to buy Fulgrim next.
Oh and did they release a follow-up to the Rogue Star book?

Star of Damocles comes after Rogue Star. I haven't read either though.

Hmm... given that this is a 40k forum.. I can see the poll leaning one way. We do have a board for discussing things from The Black Library by the way...

Anyway I've just stickied the Your BL Book List thread there, according to my post I've read:
