I never wanted to bleed the species to its marrow, reaving half the galaxy clean of human life in this bitter crusade. I never desired any of this, though I know the reasons for which it must be done. But all I ever wanted was the truth. – Opening Lines of the Book of Lorgar, First Canticle of Chaos 4 Prolog The following is a list of the Novels for the Warhammer 40,000 universe. Titles published prior to 1997 were originally published under the Heretic Tomes label, although several have been republished as Black Library editions. Following the 1987 initial release of Games Workshop’s Warhammer 40,000 wargame, set in a far future science fantasy universe, the company began publishing background literature that expands previous material, adds new material, and describes the universe, its characters, and its events in detail.
