All of these things are the products of changes, often deep and slow changes adopted only piecemeal over centuries, and all of those changes were working against the cultural inertia Mortimer sees as a universal constant of human society. Readers who fell in love with the history of science through James Burke's wonderful book "Connections" or the equally-delightful BBC mini-series of the same name will find the game's afoot again in Mortimer's book, only conducted along grander thematic lines, since one of the goals of "Millennium" is clearly to look ahead as well as behind.

THE PATH TO THE 31st CENTURY BEGINS THIS SEPTEMBER WITH LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES: MILLENNIUM
To view it, click here. First we've got The falls of Marakross by Steve Parker with 43 pages. This is a Dark Angels story. This is a story where a planet is being besiege by cultists. With the situation being almost beyond chaotic dark angels appear. They help the city and strike the heart of the problem but they do that only because it is in the way of their agenda. This is a good story to begin with because here we see the conflict between the dark angels and the inquisition and their agendas.

The second story it's called Vindicare and it's by CS Goto. This is a story about Nyjia an Inquisition assassin as the title of the book says. This is rather a small story with only 14 pages. The all story it's told by her view point but never in the first person. It is accomplished succefully and I must say it was one of my favourite characters in the all book, even if the story was not my favourite.
Fairy Tales in the New Millennium
At the moment of attack the Dark Angels fall from the sky and try to interrupt the attack from the Eldar but they are all dead. This battle is well displayed and could inspire people making it a good scenario.
The story gives good detail of the background and the story flows smoothly. The end was I am going to write the spoilers. She kills the leader of the eldar and they flee. Well for me it's kind of odd that situation but The Prisoner by Graham Mcneill with 46 pages was one of my favourite. For the first time in this book but not the last we are confronted with Erebus.
In this story unfolds in a jail in a dying planet Orina Septimus.

The story rounds about a prisioner that was appreendehed while coming to the jail, normaly they try to get out. As he was not a normal prisioner and Lord Osorkon of the Inquisition is called. Then the plot begans to unfold quickly. The Inquisition tries to move him out of the cell and in the same time not one but two problems appear. First a rebellion of the prisioners made by Finn a prisioner who dreamt of men in red and then the coming of the Word Bearers the blood-red painted chaos space marines. As soon as the rebellion starts the prisioners start to kill eachothers the rival gangs and at the same time the guards.
The Word Beares move after killing all that had survived. The retinue of Lord Osorkon and his Grey Knights prepare to defend themselves from the invaders but are overwhelmed by sheer numbers. In the end Erebus with his Word Bearers take Finn away from the carnage fullfiling the dream.
I must say I like everything in this story. The characters even if not fully devolpment as normal in a short story make us enjoy the story and as soon as you start reading you realized that is over. This is the smallest in the short stories with only 13 pages.
This story moves around a renegade battle-sister of the Order of Martyred Lady. I must say I was a bit only a bit dissapointed with this story. I am used reading Dan Abnett masterpieces and so this small story it's dulled. I don't know why. An hunter it's sent to catch a woman which we learn it's a battle sister but it's captured and used as bait as three battle sisters come to captured her. With 17 pages is a story a story again with a battle sister and what faitth can do the men who are desperate and battling for survival. I like the theme and the story as well. The few number of pages didn't helped mainly in the end who was a bit harsh to a conclusion.
I wonder what could he've done with more pages. The next story was perhaps the one I was eagerly awaiting. Not because of the theme or the story itself but the person who were writing, Mike Lee. I like very much the Malus Darkblade serie. He brings us Gate of Souls with 19 pages. Again this is a story with WordBeares and Erebus. The plot itself it's simple but flows well. Well this is a story by Ultramaries who receive a distress call and go answered. Upon arrival they are confronted with a small fort with ultramarines symbols some of them strange to them. There are none Ultramarines only servants but with their tongues cut.
They try to check the distress call and what happened there. Well I must say I was dissapointeed with this story in the suspense part. By half of the story I would know the ending but not why was that. There was something troubling my reading.
They prayed a lot. The main character was always reflecting and praying. But okay. The writing was too pormenerized and sometimes was boring. But in the end it was as I expected and I knew why. I must say one thing, I like all armies, but the Eldar have something appealing to me. I think it's because of their doom. The always-in-their-mind doom. The last book was the pearl of the book with another story by CS Goto with 50 pages the biggest Tears of Blood. Right now, though, he's reeling off his current lot in life: 32 years old, University of Texas graduate, single, emotionally and physically stable, successful in a Austin-based dot-com startup company making God knows what.
We're here this morning, he and I, to discuss his former drug of choice, Ecstasy, or if you're a chemical engineer, 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine. This guy, this normal-as-the-day-is-long guy is flashing back to his first Ecstasy trip: May , before the drug went Schedule I, before "America's War on Drugs," before many of the current crop of Ecstasy users were even born. As he begins taking me back to that almost mythical first time , his voice ratchets upward in tone, the words coming quicker, excited at the recounting of such an obviously glorious experience.
His body language echoes his words. Between swallows from an oversized mug of cappuccino, this is his story: "Some friends of mine and I had gone down to the Lizard Lounge -- where that retro club Polly Esther's is now -- wanting to try some Ecstasy.
We wanted to see what all the fuss was about. The word was that it was just, you know, very cool stuff. Very safe, not too trippy. My girlfriend scored some pills, these large whitish tablets, like horse pills almost, from some guy that was just selling them right there on the street in front of the club. Nasty, nasty flavor. After that, we kill some time dancing, walking around, just sitting there waiting for the stuff to do whatever it was going to do.
