READ IT BECAUSE
This story first appeared in issue 30 of Inferno! magazine and is Dan Abnett’s original version of a planned short story that ended up being incorporated into the novel First and Only instead. This is a rare chance to see it as it would have appeared had it been released as originally intended. Read what might have been in this curio from the Black Library archive.
