2014 — The Tally

So I just sat down and sorted through what I wrote and what was published in 2014. A few things remain under the veil of secrecy, but this still works as a broad picture.

First, here’s what came out.

Short Stories:

– “The Conversion” in Kaiju Rising: Age of Monsters.

“The Tribute of Flesh.”

– “Sermon of Exodus” in Sedition’s Gate (this anthology was exclusive to the Horus Heresy Weekender).

“Sarcophagus.”

“A Plague of Saints.”

“The Gallows Saint.”

“Concordat.”

– “The Deeper Wounds” in Sabbat Crusade.

“True Name.”

“Incorruptible.”

“Honour and Wrath.”

– “The Endless Fall.”

– “The Ghosts of Rage.”

(The last two stories are included in the Lemartes box set.)

Books:

– Yarrick: Imperial Creed.

– Overfiend.

Maledictus.

– The Damnation of Pythos.

– Lemartes: Guardian of the Lost.

I was of two minds whether to include Lemartes in this list, since people won’t actually have it until 2015, but it was announced this year. I figure between that and the re-release of the previously limited Mephiston: Lord of Death, I can lay claim to five books out in 2014, and I like that number.

As for what I wrote, all of the above short stories, with the exception of “The Conversion” and “The Tribute of Flesh” were written in 2014, as were Maledictus and Lemartes. I wrote three more short stories — two are Horus Heresy ones, and the third is an occult investigator tale that will be showing up here.

I wrote two other novels this year too. One is a secret, but the other, just completed, is Yarrick: The Pyres of Armageddon. That one will be out in 2015. Looking ahead, I’ll be working on more Yarrick, more Grey Knights and more Horus Heresy, and a few more things besides. And there’s this little unicorn story I’m just wrapping up…

All in all, that’s about 400,000 words written this year. There were a few things I wanted to tackle, but only got a start on (maybe in 2015!), but overall that was pretty close to my best-case target in terms of numbers, so I’m feeling okay. So it’s back to work then. And wishing you all the best in the coming year.
