Description

An anthology of short stories set in the brutal, madcap, fatasy football world of Blood Bowl by some of Black Library's best-loved authors. Prepare for the brutal, bone-crunching action of the classic fantasy football game - Blood Bowl. A contest of strategy and tactics, combined with sheer wanton violence, this may just be the goriest sport in existence. Join roaring spectators as they behold the frenzy of cheating dwarfs, second-rate wizards, homicidal orcs, and injured heroes fighting for old glory as they compete for the ultimate bloody victory. Ever wondered what happened to the legendary Bad Bay Hackers? Find out in Matt Forbeck's, `Hack Attack'. Other titles in this rip-roaring anthology include new Black Library writers Alec Worley and Robbie MacNiven, as well as established authors Josh Reynolds, Guy Hayley, David Guymer, and Gav Thorpe.
