Huh. Was there supposed to be anything but a paragraph and some art?

Not yet. If I was to guess, I'd say that Unwired is one of the books that Adam sent to press tonight (per his Twitter). That would mean that we can hope to see a pdf in the next week or so--there are digital hoops to jump through for bookmarking etc that you don't need in a press-ready file.

If it hit the press today, then Unwired SHOULD be out for GenCon and maybe Origins. This of course depends on a dozen factors that I'm not privvy to, starting with whether or not this was in fact sent to the press today.

For more information, talk to a Catalyst employee. I'm just here to spread rumors and gossip.

In general the first preview is just art and some splash info. The second preview has actual pages from the book.

I reference: Street Magic, Runner Havens, and Corporate Enclaves. All three had a preview like what is showing for Unwired.

Rather than limit ourselves to doing "simple" art previews as we've done in the past, for Unwired we've opted to accompany the artwork with a brief description of the content of key chapters. Matrix Overview, now up, is the fluff chapter that covers all you ever wanted to know about the everyday Matrix use in 2070. More will follow in the next few days.

Art is nice, material will be interesting for various reasons. It's a shame I have no money.

Of course, we see only the best sides of the book right now. I expect that I'll have different opinions when I finally read it.

Wow, that art is nice. And the description of the Matrix Overview chapter seems promising.

I'm going out on a limb and guessing that this won't make Origins (2 weeks away). Unless CGL's printer can do some quick turn on part of the print run...

I genuinely want to like that book. I have fears, but I would like nothing better than for them to be unfounded.

Honestly, it was my intention to leave the Matrix House Rules on hold for Unwired to come out so that I could see if they were still necessary. I planned from that point to combine terminology and make explicit reference to the Unwired ruleset. And then. Unwired kept not coming out. The whole project has been on hold for over seven months because I keep thinking that Unwired is about to come out and I keep hoping that Unwired is going to be good enough that my project won't even be required.

But hey, I'm in exam periods here at Charles University, so hopefully I'll happen to have some time as soon as I get a chance to get my grubby hands on Unwired. With Histology behind me, I'll probably be able to do a pretty decent turnaround on reading, evaluating, and extrapolating from Unwired. If it turns out that I still feel that house rules need to be used, I'll have some time to myself in California to update them.

I'm going to say what everyone else has said. The preview artwork is gorgeous. If the rest of Unwired holds up in comparison that is going to be one excellent book.
