Warhammer News: On the Shoulders of Giants and other stories

An exciting new book is coming soon from Warhammer. 

This anthology of short stories opens with a novella-length tale by Adrian which finds Fusil-Major Rosforth consigned to an unlikely friendship after a career-ending injury. 

The hard-nosed Dawnbringer must now be carried into battle by Slobda, a vicious man-eating ogor drafted into Sigmar’s service, and their problems only mount when the Skaven spill forth into Ghyran in their millions. Rosforth and Slobda find themselves responsible for a desperate band of survivors fleeing the teeming hordes of plague-ridden ratmen, and they’ll put their partnership to the test getting everyone to safety.

On the Shoulders of Giants and Other Stories also includes other tales from the Mortal Realms penned by Noah Van Nguyen, Liane Merciel, and more.

For those new to Warhammer, this should be entirely approachable as a fantasy story, and a good introduction to the setting.

And also – because how often does an author have this opportunity – here’s a picture of some Warhammer figures representing the main characters of ‘On The Shoulders of Giants’ painted up by Adrian himself.

"Picking up an Adrian Tchaikovsky book is proof you love your brain and want it to be happy" (John Scalzi, author of Starter Villain)

    To fix the world they must first break it further.

    Humanity is a dying breed, utterly reliant on artificial labor and service.

    When a domesticated robot gets a nasty little idea downloaded into its core programming, they murder their owner. The robot discovers they can also do something else they never did before: they can run away.

    Fleeing the household they enter a wider world they never knew existed, where the age-old hierarchy of humans at the top is disintegrating into ruins and an entire robot ecosystem devoted to human wellbeing is having to find a new purpose.

   Sometimes all it takes is a nudge to overcome the limits of your programming.
