Still great pulp stuff.
The problem with Long, is not that he is a bad writer, its just he seems to have a rather limited vocabulary, and a habit of re using whole paragraphs. Especially when it comes to fight scenes.

When it comes to Warhammer, id say with all the respect to Abnett and King, C.L. Werner is one of the best. His "Brunner" (Warhammer style Clint Eastwood in Unforgiven) and "Witchhunter" anthologies, are just great.
