Horus Heresy

The Horus Heresy is a huge series, including 54 novels and countless short stories and audios. This page includes details of the stories I’ve contributed, so might be useful if you want to follow the White Scars arc in order, or find certain titles.

White Scars

Most of my work in the Horus Heresy series has followed the Fifth Legion, ‘White Scars’. The following books and short stories are listed here in order of publication. I think that’s also the best order to read them in, too, although if you want strict chronological order, then note that The Primarchs: Jaghatai Khan takes place, story-wise, first.

The Primarchs: Jaghatai Khan is an entry in the separate Primarchs series, but ties in very closely to the other White Scar tales. A prequel of sorts, it’s set across the Great Crusade, shedding a little more light on the Legion’s nature and history.
