In summary, all newer formats strongly indicate an explicit and decisive effort by Black Library to move into a more up-market, premium segment with their products.


1. The mass-paperback format

Without a doubt, the Black Library built its success on cheap pulp novel in paperback budget format.

There are literally hundreds fledged novel, as well as a large variety of short story anthologies are available in this format. Today, the Black Library's public image is closely related to these books.

2. The hard-cover novel

Initially, it is smaller and, comparatively, a more expensive format used to publish stories directly bind to a specific product release, such as Dark Vengeance Novella published to go with a box set of miniature with the same name.

This sets the novel apart from ordinary novel, which binds to the fictional setting at a broader level but not for any specific product released for the game.
