When David Annandale releases a new WH40k horror novel, we stand up and listen. Or in the case of the book club, buy it as soon as possible. No one, and we mean NO ONE, writes Warhammer Horror the way Annandale does. Even when he’s not specifically writing a horror novel, he’s still able to magically entwine elements of horror within them. Suffice to say, we were all over The Deacon of Wounds as soon as it was available for preorder.
It’s a short read, but it’s a fantastic one at that. Even though it’s a bit short, we had plenty to say. We might have compared this book quite a bit to both Stephen King and one of his best books, Pet Sematary.
As for what’s coming up next, we’re going back to the past, so to speak. Dan Abnett’s Penitent recently released, and since we just finished Pariah, it’s time to move on and see what’s going to happen with poor Beta Bequin next. Abnett said at the book’s announcement that it was going to be “lore changing,” so once again, we’re rather cautious about it.
The Deacon of Wounds by David Annandale vidcast is, of course, on YouTube, and the podcast is on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and virtually anywhere else you can find podcasts!

Each episode will be in a traditional book club format. We will read one mutually agreed upon book to discuss at the club meeting aka podcast. Sometimes we will read brand new books, sometimes we will read old books, but there will be a method to our madness as to why.
