Was wondering if anyone might know if we can expect any new products to be on the shelves for the upcoming holiday season?

Thanks in advance,

AJC

well, just say "Born to Run' and Barnes&Nobles the other day.... I saw somewhere that Street magic was rumored to release around the end of November, so we shouldn't see that one until January most likely. But System FAilure's out! Until then, just run a game in 2061, and have Ghostwalker make an appearance for every one's Xmas presents.

Already picked up SR4, Loose Alliances, Shadows of Asia & System Failure for X-Mas. :D Got a lot of reading to do. :grinbig:
Already picked up Born To Run when it hit & finished it in about 2 weeks (had to take breaks for sleep, GF, food, ect.). Not bad.

As of last month Fanpro hadn't even started going through proposals for submissions for Street Magic. Also a while back Runner Havens (the Seattle & Hong Kong setting books) was moved up ahead of it in the schedule. Given that i don't see how it'll be out before Easter 2006.

Thanks for the feedback guys - pretty much what I expected. I too have picked up all of the recent books but was hoping there might be a surprise in the pipeline for us.

That being said, I did just pick up my Christmas present early - 17 NEW Shadowrun novels that had been languishing on the bookshelf of a FLGS. :eek:

AJ, check them against the master novel listing on the SR-Fanpro site. I have all of them myself too. :grinbig:

That's what I did. Now between and eBay auction I won and some luck at a local used bookstore, I should have ALL of the novels in my hot little hand within the next week or two. :D

A Shadowrun Christmas?

What would that involve? A B&E run to put gifts in people's houses, with the only feasable entrance being the chimney? ;)

A wetwork run against a fat man in a red suit, with the Johnson being a grey and white talking rabbit? [/Sluggy Freelance reference]

Seriously, though, my street sam's probably going to buy some tinsel to decorate his bunker with. Maybe a faux-tree, too.

I bet he uses grenades as ornaments on the tree.
