  1. […] out David’s books here. (I’d list them all with pictures but he’s written a lot…. so I figure you can […]

  2. Blackhart says:

    G’day David, ever thought about writing a novel or series about Canoness Setheno? She is an amazing character with an interesting history. I would love to read about her.

    • Thanks! I’ve been really gratified by the reactions she’s been getting, and I would certainly jump at the chance to give her a starring role. That doesn’t seem too likely for now, as there are all sorts of other things Black Library has asked me to work on, but one never knows what the future might hold.

  3. Blackhart says:

    Well as long as you keep writing them I will keep reading them. Setheno is by far my favourite 40K character. I have read most of your work, “The Death Of Antagonis” was fantastic. Congratulations on your efforts so far. I hope I will cross paths with Setheno in the future.
