Battle of the Fang rumored tie-ins with Prospero Burns

Word from my sources is that the latest (as of yet unpublished) Space Marines Battles series novel, Battle of the Fang is rumored to have tie-ins to the latest published novel by Dan Abnett, Prospero Burns.

discussion to ensue…

What we’ve got from Black Library on the subject of Battle of the Fang is this:

It is M32, a thousand years after the Horus Heresy. The Scouring is over and the Imperium at the height of its post-Crusade power. When Magnus the Red is tracked down to Gangava Prime, the Space Wolves hasten to engage the daemon primarch. Even as Great Wolf Harek Ironhelm closes on his ancient enemy, the Fang on the Space Wolves home world is besieged by a massive force of Thousand Sons. A desperate battle ensues as the skeleton forces of Wolf Lord Vaer Greylock attempt to hold back the attacking hosts before the last of his meagre defences gives in. Though a single Scout ship survives to summon Great Wolf Harek Ironhelm back to Fenris, none of the defenders truly realise the full scale the horror that awaits them, nor what the Battle for the Fang will cost them all.

Although the attack happens 1000 years after the Horus Heresy, i’m wondering if this is a latent attempt at some form of retaliation by the Thousand Sons legion.

Anyone have any thoughts and/or speculations? Perhaps Chris Wraight, if he reads this could pop on and give us an explanation.
