WFRP Book vs Novel Magic Items

I have been reading the Warhammer fantasy novels for quite a few years now and playing the WFRP game even longer.  It came to me just recently that I don't ever remember seeing a magic item from the rulebook make it into a novel.

The Gotrek and Felix novels probably come the closest. Gotrek has a rune axe and Felix has a magical sword. These weapons, however, don't match the ability options in the first edition book.

So, were the magic items in the rule book too lame, or were the authors of the novels too interested in coming up with their own items?

Besides wondering about that disconnect, it can be an encouragement for us to get out there and make our own magic items for our own games.
