The Horus Heresy is a series of novels, anthologies and audiobooks based on the historic events known as the Great Crusade and the Horus Heresy, about 10,000 standard years before the present 41st millenium. The novels are written by different authors, but follow the same storyline - the fall of Warmaster Horus and his campaign of treachery to usurp the Emperor as ruler of the Imperium.

The publishing order of the books does not reflect an attempt to tell the overall storyline chronologically; the stories are set are various points within the overall meta-plot, gradually illuminating the whole tale from various perspectives. There are directly connected works within this structure, however. For instance, the first three novels are a distinct trilogy, the eleventh is a sequel (of sorts) to the sixth, and the 12th and 15th are intended by the authors to be a duology.

Novels and Anthologies

As of April 2015, there have been 37 Horus Heresy main novels published by Games Workshop. Of them, 10 are anthologies of Horus Heresy short stories.
