Happy New Year WH40k Black Library readers! We’re so thrilled to start 2023 with you all, and we had a banger of book to kick off the year with, Witchbringer by Steven B Fischer. This is the third book in the Black Library’s Astra Militarum series, and it’s just as fantastic as the first two. Hopefully we both took good enough notes to remember this one come the 2023 Book Awards.
This time in the series, we get a better look at how awful it is to be a sanctioned psyker in the Imperium. We knew it wasn’t a pleasant existence, but now we really know how terrible it is to have a touch of the warp.
We had fun reading this book and talking about it. The discussion produced a new phrase for us that I hope we use QUITE often: the Emperor’s secret Twinkie stash. Yes, you’ll have to watch/listen to hear this in context.
Also, huge apologies in regards to the audio. I got a new mic for Christmas and I’m evidently having technical issues with it. Incense is burning, oils have been applied. Proper prayers will be invoked next time.
Next up is another trip back in the Wayback Machine courtesy of Games Workshop releasing a limited edition version of War of the Fang. It’s Space Wolves and Chris Wraight. Should be a good time!
The Witchbringer by Steven B Fischer vidcast is, of course, on YouTube, and the podcast is on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and virtually anywhere else you can find podcasts! If you haven’t read the book yet, better do that before you listen! If you like us, please subscribe or even leave a review!
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.
