Blood Bowl Novels Back in Gorgeous Boxed Set

Yesterday, Games Workshop’s books division—the Black Library—announced that it’s bringing my Blood Bowl novels back into print in an exclusive, limited-edition boxed set. For those who don’t know, Blood Bowl is GW’s game of fantasy football, which is slated for the release of a brand-new edition soon. In this case, the “fantasy” comes from playing the game not with pro athletes but …

New Blood Bowl Review

Over at BeastsofWar.com, Sam gives my first Blood Bowl novel 4.5 stars out of 5. He writes: All in all, it is a very entertaining read, and has remained a firm favourite of mine along with the rest of its series. I would especially recommend it to fans of the game, and to fans of Terry Pratchett’s books, as well …

Blood Bowl on Comicon.com

A short while back, Jennifer Contino interviewed me for her Pulse column at Comicon.com. You can now read the results online. Jennifer clearly didn’t know much about the history of Blood Bowl as a game, and I suspect many comic-book fans might not either. I enjoyed having the chance to set things straight and give credit where it was due: …

The inimitable Ian Brill, my editor at Boom Studios, tells me that the collected edition of Blood Bowl: Killer Contract should show up in stores on or around November 19.

Blood Bowl #5 in Stores Yesterday!

Like a thief in the night, Blood Bowl: Killer Contract #5 slipped into comic book stores yesterday without my notice. In this final issue in the miniseries, Lads Helloven and I wrap up with a bang the tale of the Bad Bay Hackers’ quest to defend their title as the Blood Bowl champs against their (very, very) old rivals, the …

Blood Bowl: Killer Contract #4 Out Tomorrow!

Yes, it’s a big week for releases here in Casa Forbeck. Tomorrow (October 1) sees the release of Blood Bowl: Killer Contract #4. In this issue, the Bad Bay Hackers take on the Chaos All-Stars with all the resultant tentancular mayhem you’d expect from such a matchup. Lads does his now-traditional great job of translating my words into art—or so …

Blood Bowl: Killer Contract #3 Out Now!

The Boom Studios website informs me that Blood Bowl: Killer Contract #3 hit comic-book stores yesterday. It also shows the book with a snazzy, new cover I’ve never seen before (apparently that was Cover C I had up earlier), provided by the series’ stunning artist Lads Helloven. I haven’t seen the book yet myself, but I plan to go hunting …

That’ll put us at the halfway mark for the series, and I can’t wait for you to all see how it all comes together. Boom has posted the final covers for the issue, which …
