Deathwatch: Xenos Hunters anthology review

I visited Berlin recently and, wandering around the city, found myself in a geek bookshop. To my surprise I discovered a stand of 40k books in English between My Little Pony comics and Star Wars calendars. All literature I took with myself was already finished by that time so after checking my BL wishlist I picked up a copy of Deathwatch: Xenos Hunters - anthology of eleven short stories devoted to these alien-hunting marines. I thought that, with any luck, some of the stories might contain interesting ideas on the subject as opposed to usual problems that plague SM fiction. So let's see if my hopes were fulfilled. All spoilers are hidden by default.
