Episode 006: Horus Heresy Reading Order

In this Episode Greg is joined by Marcus to answer a question they have both seen asked a number of times – ‘What book should I read next?’

The first part of the discussion covers the various mediums in which Heresy stories are released and possible pros and cons of these. The second part involves a run through of the first 30 books and creates a list of ‘must reads’ while discussing the merits of all the others as well. A list of the must reads can be found at the bottom of these show notes.
