The stand out was definitely the opening stories about Yarrick. Yarrick was on the first 'special characters' established for Warhammer 40k and he was paired in eternal combat with the Ork warlord Ghazgul. These stories flesh out their eternal war with Yarrick definitely getting the worse of it. About halfway through it hit me, this is Ahab vs Moby Dick, with Yarrick as the crippled, bitter Ahab never able to get revenge on his foe.
The other stories vary from fair to mediocre. They scratch that itch of wanted to read 40k fiction but didn't really stick with me.
