Distant Echoes of Old Night is the third short story published in the Horus Heresy that was not originally part of an anthology novel. It was first published as part of the Games Day Anthology 2012/13 and was later released separately as an e-book. It is also included in The Silent War anthology novel.


Death Guard Chaplain Murnau has shot down an Imperial Fists vessel on a dismal backwater world, and the forces under his command are closing in on the wreckage. With his mission clear in his mind to leave no survivors, Murnau unleashes one of his Legion's most deadly units: the fearsome and infamous Destroyers.
