Counter, Ben

Tagged: Author

(1979-    ) UK author primarily associated to date with various iterations of the Warhammer Game-oriented universe, though his first work of genre interest, "Hate" for Roadworks in 1999, is not connected. His novels for the universe include three for Warhammer 40,000, beginning with Warhammer 40,000: Soul Drinker (2002); two for Warhammer 40,000: Grey Knights, beginning with Warhammer 40,000: Grey Knights (2004) and Warhammer 40,000: Soul Drinkers: Crimson Tears (2005) for the Warhammer 40,000: Soul Drinkers subseries. As usual with this large and continuing sequence, Counter's contributions are surprisingly free in conception and language; for novels set in a franchise world, they convey a refreshing sense of autonomy.
