Ask... MIKE LEE

A place for you to ask questions of some of the Black Library authors themselves.

Really? Well that sucks. Guess all we can hope for is that someone else picks Malus up, maybe C.L Werner. He did write that short story for the first BL weekender anthology, a story set after the 5th Darkblade book and it was really good. If anyone else were to pen Malus' remaining adventures, he'd be my first pick.

What a ridiculous notion!

Mike very much still works for us. Traitor's Gorge's signing page was left deliberately unsigned so that when he comes to events (like some of the US-based events last year and no doubt forthcoming events as well), people can bring the book for him to sign and have a chat with him. That's worth doing - he's a jolly nice chap. :D

He's currently working on several <CENSORED BY THE INQUISITION> for me, with <CENSORED BY THE INQUISITION> lined up for the future. Rest assured, I'm cracking the whip and keeping him busy.

As for Malus Darkblade... He will return. When and how, and written by whom, I can't say. But you can't keep a good dark elf down. Malus will return.

Then why did Fallen Angels have no afterword?

I buy the Collectors Edition mostly for the afterwords, since I already have all Heresy books. I was very disappointed there was none :(

Oh well that's good. I take it from that comment that Mike Lee isn't writing Darkblade anymore, but it's good to know that he will be back. I hope it's not too far away.
