Black Library comes to Android and Kindle

Black library has just announced that the digital products from them including new and old, will now be available on Android devices and Kindle.

This comes as no surprise to me at all. they are now opening up the digital books to a much larger audience, than they had with iOS. Wile iOS provides a more piracy safe environment, it still doesn't stop the use of pirated PDF Black library books to be downloaded. of which there are hundreds.

At least now, those with android devises can download the awesome books from such writers as Graham McNeill, Andy Chambers, Aaron Dembski Bowden.

The Move to android and Kindle for Black Library could double there revenue now. I actually purchased an Ipad just for the Black library series of books Namely the Horus Heresy Books. 

We may even in time see Games Workshop take the plunge and release the Digital Codex's for the systems too. Wile it wont really work on a Kindle because of its Paper white Screen. We can certain hope to see the Digital Library Open for Kindle Fire and all Android Based Tablets.

The Digital Downloads for Black Library will be Available on the 10th of June.

But Mobi and Epub files are available as a preview now on the Black Library web site.

"We have some exciting news today, from our colleagues at Games Workshop.

As of Monday, you’ll be able download a new range of titles, compatible with almost any current generation mobile device or tablet, from right here on the Black Library website. What’s more, if you already have an account on this website, you can get  these new books the same way you would download a Black Library eBook.
These new publications explore the Warhammer and Warhammer 40,000 universes in unprecedented detail. Find out more details about the origins of characters that appear in Black Library novels and in games of Warhammer 40,000 and learn about the vast arsenal of weaponry, myriad alien creatures and daemonic entities that exists in the far future.

The range kicks off with three series: Warlords of the Dark Millennium, Index Astartes, and Munitorum.

Warlords of the Dark Millennium explores the heroes and villains of the Warhammer 40,000 universe. Each instalment will cover topics like the origin of the character, great battles in their history, and their rise to glory (and/or infamy). It will also include detailed descriptions and images of the character’s weapons and wargear, not to mention full rules for using them in your games of Warhammer 40,000 (even if you don’t have the relevant codex).
Index Astartes may be a familiar name to longstanding Games Workshop fans, as it first appeared as an article in White Dwarf as far back as 1988! Every week, Index Astartes will explore the Space Marines of the Imperium: everything you ever wanted to know about the warriors, vehicles, beliefs and fighting style of the Emperor’s finest. Many of the classic Index Astartes articles will become available again digitally, as well as loads of new instalments to look forward to.
Munitorum is your indispensible guide to the weapons and wargear of the Warhammer 40,000 universe. Every issue will focus on an item of battlefield equipment from the far future, from the humble lasgun, to the alien shuriken catapult, to the apocalyptic vortex missile.

You can download a preview of the first installments in these three new series today and find out what you can expect from the new range of Games Workshop Digital Editions."
