The galaxy has changed. Armies of Chaos march across the Dark Imperium, among them the Death Guard, servants of the Plague God. But shadows of the past haunt these traitors… The Death Guard have returned to prominence with the return of Mortarion and their fabulous model range, and Chris Wraight's previous work with them (in his Space Wolves novels, notably) makes him the perfect person to delve into their particular darkness. The Cadian Gate is broken, and the Imperium is riven in two. The might of the Traitor Legions, kept shackled for millennia behind walls of iron and sorcery, has been unleashed on a darkening galaxy. Among those seeking vengeance on the Corpse Emperor’s faltering realm are the Death Guard, once proud crusaders of the Legiones Astartes, now debased creatures of terror and contagion. Mighty warbands carve bloody paths through the void, answering their lord primarch’s call to war. And yet for all their dread might in arms, there is no escape from the vicious legacies of the past, ones that will pursue them from the ruined daemon-worlds of the Eye of Terror and out into the smouldering wastes of the Imperium Nihilus.

As plague spreads and the defences weaken, all seems lost, until help arrives from a most unexpected source... if Helborg can bring himself to accept it.

Okay..in my first book "MARCH OF THE COOKIE CUTTERS" I gave you reality- and only half of you could handle it. Some could grasp it, and others had to bail out back into their little fantasy world. Most of you were okay with it until it got to the part that you, yourselves, were guilty of..then you jettisoned out of the picture. You'd think that by now you'd be sick of the 'America the Great' [email protected]#$% DEGREES that they're jamming down your throat. Only half of you actually are, however. It's time for you to wake up and realize what we have become. In this book "THE LORDS OF NOTHING" I'm going to give you your medicine in the candy. I'm going to give it to you in sci-fi form, instead. You people love fantasy; maybe you can grasp it in this form this easier. If you want the truth about what we are.and you have the guts--then read my books. So many of you don't want to be told what to do. You're so worried about socialism. You forget something..and that is that 'The Socialist in the Sky'...God, Himself, will judge you for everything that you do. Oh--by the way..the women that are hooking up with the massive influx of garbage men that are here now in massive numbers--WERE THE LAST LINE OF DEFENSE THAT HAS FALLEN TO PREVENT THESE IDIOTS FROM REPRODUCING MORE OF THEMSELVES!!! Bad dads mean bad kids..period. You women complain that there aren't enough good men. Correct..there isn't a lot of good men. So who are these 100 million women married to? Why----let's see--duh---oh!! I get it..the bad ones!!! Ta da!!!! What a profound thought on my part--huh?!! Two stupid parents are not better than one good parent.. as you have already sadly found out. What part of your life is quality? Is it the one where you go to work, and wear the 'Urban Gimp Suit' (cliche business suit)? Is it the part where you spend one half of an hour eating dinner with family? Is it the part right after that when you go into separate rooms to worship the decadence of the now maligned format of the 'Plasma Gods' (TV sets)? Is it when you go to sleep and 'dream' about great conquests? Most of this country's great victories are someone else's on a TV screen.. because most of you have made no life of your own. We've traded ethics, nobility and morals for superficial entertainment and money. Time to take back the country. This is my second venture into writing. My first book "MARCH OF THE COOKIE CUTTERS" was embraced by those with vision, and denied and scoffed at by those that were actually living out that lifestyle, themselves. The truth about the reality of their situation was too scary a place for them to go to. I am nearing the 'Big 50' now and my convictions for writing these ideas are stronger than ever. There have simply been too many visionaries out there that have seen the truth about what we have become.and all too clearly. I continue to be totally honest with you people--with zero coloration of the sad facts that are at hand. I promised myself in the beginning to never waver from the truth, and I will forever uphold to that principle. Luckily for me I do not have to deal with the large contingency of these perpetrators in my personal life. I am surrounded by, or have surrounded myself by the very good people that we still have.. Thank God!! Nothing of which I write about is based on any bitterness from personal experiences. I have a great family, and I have great friends. However, the problem people that I write about are now in massive numbers. My books are an attempt to dispel the myths and false mist that so many of us now exist in. So many of us are now just clone-copies of everybody else. We have almost forgot how to be sincere. We are losing our way. We must try to get back on the right track, and make America the great nation that it once was."
The Lords of Avaris is one man's journey in search of the legendary origins of the Western World. Our story begins in a small rock-cut tomb below the desolate ruin-mound of Jericho in the Jordan Valley. This is the start of an epic journey of discovery, in the Homeric mould, which ranges across the ancient lands and archaeological sites of the Mediterranean. From Joshua's Jericho to Romulus' Rome, the true chronicle of our pre-Christian past is uncovered revealing an extraordinary historical picture, previously unimagined by scholars. The epic legends of the West, which permeate the writings of Greece and Rome, appear to have been based on the exploits of genuine historical figures and actual events. There really was an 'Heroic Age' of brazen-clad warriors, the last of which fought before the walls of Troy, just as described in Homer's Iliad. At the beginning of the Middle Bronze Age - two thousand years before the assassination of Julius Caesar in the Roman Senate - a new people appeared on the stage of history to join the great civilisations of Mesopotamia and Egypt. These 'Indo-European'-speaking tribes were chariot-riding warriors from the northern mountains and plains. They became the Hittites, the Aryan kings of Mitanni, the Vedic heroes of the Indus, and the founders of the later empires of Greece, Persia and Rome. They had many legendary names - the Divine Pelasgians of Greece, the Luwians of Troy and western Anatolia, the Rephaim and Anakim of the Bible, and the Hyksos rulers of Avaris who suppressed Egypt for generations. Their heroes and heroines are legionary: Inachus, mythical king of Argos in the Peloponnese; his daughter the beautiful Princess Io who married an Egyptian pharaoh; Danaus, the Hyksos ruler who, fleeing from Egypt to Greece, founded the Mycenaean dynasty which culminated in Agamemnon's ill-fated Trojan War; Cadmus, the bringer of writing to the West; Minos, the Cretan high-king of Knossos who built the infamous Labyrinth; Mopsus, warrior and sage who led a vast Greek, Philistine and Anatolian army into the Levant in a daring attempt to seize Egypt in the time of Ramesses III. All these, and more, are the stuff of legend - but The Lords of Avaris reveals these Classical heroes as flesh-and-blood characters from our ancestral past.
