Dan: One of the big challenges I set myself when writing Prospero Burns
was to try to portray the Space Wolves as more than simply feral and
deadly warriors. I mean, they HAVE to be feral and deadly, but I want
the reader to have a little more empathy with them than that. It's too
easy to read them as brutish and cartoonish.
It's also too easy to spoil everything by making them too touchy-feely,
and therefore dilute the whole Space Wolf riff. I'm pretty pleased with
the balance I've struck: I'm really looking forward to see what Space
Wolf fans and players think. The Wolves are absolutely the stone killers
they always have been, mighty and resolute and stoical, but there's
also now a sense of a grim special purpose to them, a reason for why
they are so vicious and uncompromising.
Plus, they're smarter and wiser than you might imagine.
Space Wolf players might also like to bear in mind that this is set in
the very early days of the Legion, no more than a century after their
foundation, and at a time when even the Fang is not 'finished'. We're so
used, in 40K, to Chapters being 'immortal institutions' - they've been
around 10,000 years, they're never going to end or change. But all the
Space Marines are new in the Horus Heresy. No real longevity has been
established, no traditions. They are learning about themselves,
discovering if the concept of the Space Marine is just the latest stage
of the arms race or something more enduring and permanent. It makes the
Wolves, even Russ, less secure and also a LOT more ambitious. They want
to prove themselves and woe betide you if you're dumb enough to get in
I hope readers enjoy Prospero Burns. As a counterpoint to Graham's
wonderful A Thousand Sons, it may make people sympathetic towards the
killers rather than the victims. History is written by whoever's left
alive after the event, and opinions may vary... I personally can't wait
to get back to Fenris.
В общем, Дэн всячески выказывает любовь волкам) Он обещал чутка бека о волках до просперо, до того, как Фанг был закончен и т.д.
