  • Pages ?-? : Intro : Gotrek & Felix are mentioned in the introduction twice:
    • First when Nathan Long is referred as the current writer of the duo at the time.
    • Second also as a note regarding John Brunner. It says that he sadly died in 1995 but he wrote the story ‘A Place Of Quiet Assembly‘ in the early 90s! And this story was sitting in various hard drives for 2 decades! They think that this is the last remaining unpublished story of him!
  • Pages ?-? : Novella A Place Of Quiet Assembly by John Brunner.
  • Page ? : (exactly the next page of the ending of A Place Of Quiet Assembly) : Zombieslayer advertisement.
  • Notes :
    • 1st novella of Gotrek & Felix in a Black Library digital magazine.
    • Another ‘1st‘ of Gotrek & Felix : 1st issue of Hammer And Bolter and they appear by having their own story!
    • It is useless for my opinion to collect all advertisements – mail order, etc. so I put some here, for obvious reasons (i.e., to have everything that has to do with the Gotrek & Felix).
    • A Place Of Quiet Assembly novella is included in numerous other (printed and digital) omnibus, collections, bundles, etc. For more details check its tag.
    • Cover is NOT Gotrek & Felix so the artist is not mentioned.
    • The duo is not mentioned in the back cover.
