Meduson is the third limited release volume in the Horus Heresy Series of novels, released as a Horus Heresy Weekender Exclusive in hardback format. Meduson has yet to be re-released in non-limited format, although two of its short stories have been released as a stand alone e-book and audio drama.
Meduson was later released as Meduson: The Ultimate Edition, which contains the seven short stories from the original anthology, as well Grey Talon and The Either as full-cast audio dramas with complete production scripts. Also included is a brand new story, Hand Elect by Chris Wraight.
Driven almost to the brink of self-destruction by the death of their Primarch, Ferrus Manus, the Iron Hands Legion now seek vengeance for the many horrors of Istvaan V. Gathering survivors from the Raven Guard and Salamanders Legions aboard any vessels capable of warp travel, they wage a new campaign of annihilation against the traitor forces across the galaxy - a campaign masterminded by legendary warleader Shadrak Meduson.
