@ Shoal07: The two other Ultramarine books are called 'Nightbringer' and 'Warriors of Ultramar'; the first does indeed include a bunch of Necrons, and the second an even bigger bunch of Tyranids. The books are fairly good from a fluff point of view, but unfortunately only mediocre when it comes to their plot, storyline and narration. Good for entertainment, but easily digested and not really satisfying for more than an afternoonâ€™s worth of reading.
My favourite Black Library novels are without a doubt 'Eisenhorn' by Dan Abnett and 'Lord of the Night' by Simon Spurrier â€“ both are superior pieces of writing in my opinion, and wonderful representations of the 40k universe too. I have also enjoyed reading the unending Gauntâ€™s Ghosts series, as well as 'Storm of Iron', the Shira Calpurnia series (fabulous in its capacity of an ongoing detective story as well), the Grey Knights series, and the Soul Drinker series. The Commissar Cain series is also great, giving the 40k universe a much-needed touch of humour.
As for my favourite codex/army book, Iâ€™d like to mention such oldies as 'Rogue Trader' and 'Realm of Chaos: Slaves to Darkness'. Of the newer stuff, the one Codex Iâ€™ve used the most for fluff references is the Necron Codex, which pretty much includes 60+ million years of 40k history â€“ a great source of fluff as long as you make sure to comprehend that no, the Câ€™tan arenâ€™t behind ever major and minor conspiracy in the 40k storyline; sometimes, things bloody well just happen by chance or natural evolution. :rolleyes:
And if weâ€™re allowed to mention background books as well, Iâ€™d like to add 'The Sabbat World Crusade' by Dan Abnett, 'Xenology' by Simon Spurrier and 'The Imperial Infantrymanâ€™s Uplifting Primer' (allegedly by the Departmento Munitorum ) to my list of favourite books. 'Liber Necris' is also good, as is 'The Witch Hunterâ€™s Handbook' and 'Liber Chaotica' â€“ well, in general I suppose all background fluff books are good according to a Fluff-Master! :rolleyes:
Oh, and of course the Horus Heresy series as previously mentioned, but I thought that would be a given.

My favorite has to be "Unforgiven" by Dan Abnett (???). I play Dark Angels, so it's only natural that I enjoy their stories...
Greph, what sort of stuff is found in the Witch Hunter's Handbook?
Double Egael By Dan Abnett
All the Dawn Of Wars by C.S. Goto
Warrior Brood By C.S. Goto
Warrior Coven By C.S Goto
Storm of Iron, it's well written and gives a good insight at how the Iron Warriors battle, I'm looking forward to the next book that will feature Honsou
My favorites are the Commissar Cain books.
1) Traitor's Hand (Sandy Mitchell)
2) Death or Glory (Sandy Mitchell)
3) Caves of Ice (Sandy Mitchell)
The only one I haven't read yet is "For the Emperor". They're all great books, humerous and with good plot.
By far so far my favorites have been the Eisenhorn trilogy by Dan Abnett (which I just saw in an omnibus volume the other day at the book store).
I also got a kick out of the Soul drinker trilogy by Ben Counter.
For fantasy I really enjoyed the Felix and Gotrik books. Plague Daemon was also interesting.
