It will presumably feature the Emperor and the breaching of the Webway portal on Terra by Daemons [ citation needed ]. Outside the UK, series titles are published in several countries and languages by Black Library divisions or as co-editions with local associates. As of April [update] , other-language renditions lagged the English-language series in the number of released titles, and had followed distinct publication schedules and release sequences. Starting November , new titles have often been released simultaneously in multiple media; occasionally since then, new titles' digital or audio releases have preceded the print versions, in reverse of previous practice see table "Published" above.
Series stories have appeared in whole or in part in other Black Library publications, sometimes before the corresponding series books have become generally available; prepublications have included stand-alone releases of compilation stories. There have been a number of special editions and bundles published in a variety of media; bundles have included the "Horus Heresy Collections", which mix editions and media of the same or different titles.
In concert with established industry practice, certain special editions are available in limited distribution months before the release of the corresponding regular, or wider-release, versions.
The books' cover art has been separately released, in poster and other formats. Series bundles and special offers have also contained the separate artwork releases of the included titles. English-language series releases include publishing of the titles in special "premium" editions: "Premium Hardback" print and "Enhanced Ebook" digital.

These versions contain additional material and artwork, and are published several months before their general-availability or regular edition counterparts. The earlier catalogue of the series is also republished in these editions, again beginning October with the series-opening novel trilogy. Critical reception of individual titles has been mixed, yet the general tone of reviews has been mostly positive. Although the series overall has been viewed favourably, there have been complaints about its length, the multitude of characters and narrative threads, and the timeline jumps or repetitions caused by the nonlinear storytelling.
Early in its publishing history, the series became a sales success in its category.
Horus Rising by Dan Abnett, the opening title, set the pace shortly after its release, topping Locus magazine's "Locus Bestsellers: Gaming-Related" list of August ; as of Book 22 September , [update] practically every title in the series had achieved the same or similar performance on this chart. The Black Library and Games Workshop have released novels, game rulebooks, and other products not branded or classified as Horus Heresy , yet directly relating to story arcs or events described in the series.
