Black Library itself was only started in 1997, so technically the first Black Library book was the first issue of "Inferno!". The first novels about 40k were written around 1990, I believe.

well amazon claims the first book was "Deathwing" written in 1990

others claim it was "inquisitor" written the same year (now titled Draco) it was the first novel in the inquisitor series.

heres the site if you wanna take a look.

http://www.amazon.com/All-Warhammer-...R219XNUPGCUTRF

i'm not so sure, since 40k is about 20 years old, the first novel made in 1990 would make sense since 1st edition came out in 1987. (i think off the top of my head).

so i hope that answers your question

Late 1980s, so I think you are correct. That was well before Black Library, so they got republished as part of that line in 2005.

I've always been told the first 40k Novel was Space Marine by Ian Watson.
