Star Wars: Aftermath by CHUCK WENDING – Book Review [Bellarius]

“After reading this novel, Star Wars is dead to me.” – Bellarius, The Founding Fields

THUNDER: The Problematic Nature of Dream Therapy and the Rehabilitation of Felons by Rich Wilkie – Book Review [Bellarius]


Looking into another indie outing, Bellarius gives a few thoughts on Rich Wilkie’s solo outing, Thunder.

“An interesting start to be sure, and with a few great ideas, but still a hard book to truly recommend.” – Bellarius, The Founding Fields

Deathfire by Nick Kyme – Book Review [Bellarius]


Bellarius looks into the long awaited latest novel in the Horus Heresy series, and finds it wanting.

“Mundane navel gazing with some of the most boring bolter porn ever put onto paper.” – Bellarius, The Founding Fields

Devouerer by Joe Parrino – Novella Review [Bellarius]


With another Black Library release in his hands, Bellarius focuses upon the larger problems dominating Joe Parrino’s Devourer, and its wasted potential.

Bioshock: Rapture by John Shirley – Book Review [Bellarius]


Returning to the world of video game tie-ins, Bellarius gives a few thoughts on Bioshock: Rapture by John Shirley.

“A reasonable effort, but certainly not nearly as deep as many would have wanted.” – Bellarius, The Founding Fields

Valedor by Guy Haley – Book Review [Bellarius]


With the release of its paperback edition, Bellarius gives a brief analysis of Valedor by Guy Haley.

“A surprise success, notably flawed throughout but still retaining one of the best depictions of Craftworld Eldar to date.” – Bellarius, The Founding Fields

Khârn: Eater of Worlds by Anthony Reynolds – Novella Review [Bellarius]


With another Chaos focused tale focusing upon the Horus Heresy’s aftermath, Bellarius steps in to give his own verdict on Khârn: Eater of Worlds.

Mephiston: Lord of Death by David Annandale – Novella Review [Bellarius]


Getting his hands on a copy at long last, Bellarius delivers his personal verdict on David Annandale’s Mephiston: Lord of Death.

Stormcaller by Chris Wraight – Book Review [Bellarius]


After finishing the first installment of Chris Wraight’s ongoing Space Wolf series, Bellarius weighs the pros and cons of his follow-up with Stormcaller.

“While a definite step in the right direction for this series, Stormcaller fails to truly capture the fun of William King’s famed tomes or the monumental developments of Battle of the Fang.” – Bellarius, The Founding Fields

Star Wars: The Essential Guide to Warfare by Jason Fry and Paul R. Urquhart – Book Review [Bellarius]


Returning once more to the realm of Star Wars, Bellarius takes a brief look at one last hurrah by the Expanded Universe before it was bulldozed away by the same director who dumbed down Star Trek to an action film franchise.

“A superbly written and concise piece which stretches across millennia, giving the full scope of just how massive the galaxy far, far away once truly was.” – Bellarius
