Baphomet by Night

Something very cool happened today – my first ever story for Black Library was released!

Baphomet-by-Night-cover

Baphomet by Night is set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe, and is an Astra Militarum (Imperial Guard) military science fiction story, something very different to what I usually write!

You can check it out here: https://www.blacklibrary.com/new-titles/featured/baphomet-by-night-eshort.html

I also wrote an introduction piece for the good folk at Warhammer Community, which you might find interesting: https://www.warhammer-community.com/2018/05/28/introducing-peter-mclean/

I had a lot of fun writing this one, I hope you enjoy it.

The Emperor protects!
