Default Dan Abnett Chat Contest



Pity i will be at school during that time so i want to let one of you Warhammer 40k nerds take my place there and chat with Dan Abnett. Send me a pm ASAP if you want a chance to talk to Dan Abnett.

Requirements:
Send me a pm of WHY you want to talk to Dan Abnett.
If you win Ravenor's Rogue, the property will belong to me and anything won by raffle. (i love his novels )


Hey, TO/Global Mods, If i am breaking any copyright rules or anything, feel free to edit/lock this thread.




Just wanna give a lucky a lucky person a chance in a lifetime ... or millenium ...

Depending on what area of the fluff we're talking about that could be infamous.

He wrote Eisenhorn. You know, the fluff so awesome it qualifies as an actual book that normal people might be interested in.

He also wrote the Gaunt's Ghosts novels.

He has written a lot of chaos, Imperial guard and space marine fluff. He also wrote the first book of the Horus Heresy series, Horus Rising.

Does that mean that he actually writes about artillery?

I'm pretty sure that the books he writes aren't truly and 100% official GW background material.

Dan Abnett is an author who has written everything from Lone Wolves to the Gaunts Ghost novels and from Mr Men to the X-Men. He also wrote Eisenhorn, Ravenor, Titan, Riders of the Dead, and much more. I believe he is also writing the first Torchwood book IIRC. Can anyone confirm that for me? (my memory's not brilliant right now)

Hmm, sounds nifty. Maybe sometime I'll have to try out one of his books.
