"A Coin for the Carrion Thieves" is a short story by John French published in December 2020 by Black Library.


After his return to the Planet of the Sorcerers in an attempt to reverse the Rubric which decimated the Thousand Sons, Ahriman retreats to the Eye of Terror to scheme anew. Seeking supplies, he delves deep into the heart of that damned realm and beseeches the sinister Carrion Thieves for aid. Low on items to trade, Ahriman turns to Ctesias, his former disciple and skilled daemonologist, to provide something for barter… at great cost.[1]
