The 'official' site posts that at least six new novels are coming, published by Roc (who published the previous series) & they will be 'side-stories', meaning they take place in the SR universe, but independent of the FanPro plotlines. :D
Also, my friend Stephen Kenson (author of The Burning Time & Ragnarock novels, and the Awakenings supplement) is a confirmed author. :D

Eeeenteresting. Since I haven't read any of their work, has anyone read anything by any of the other authors?

Too bad you won't get translations from some of the newer German novels. The three I read so far are surprisingly good.

Sorry, when I said other I meant the authors that BookWyrm hadn't mentioned - Stephen Dedman, Jason Hardy and Jean Rabe.

FlakJacket: Jason Hardy wrote a piece of short fiction for the website, called Unmaking the Man. He's also written some fiction for Crimson Skies. Jean Rabe is better known for her novels for Wizards of the Coast; here is her site. Stephen Dedman sounds familiar, but I can't place the name -- however, I did find at least a partial bibliography that lists his work.

I liked that one novel that had vampires, lesbians, and lesbian vampires. And there was a troll with a vindicator minigun. And they also had a van, and the vampires had cyberwear!

Yeah, that was my fave.

I DO hope that was ironic. :|

Lesbian troll vampires with cyberwear and a vindicator minigun riding a van ... :P

Somene send that after the author of that book! :D Not the strippers though. We can keep those in reserve, in case some of the new books turn out to be .... interesting.

Wounded Ronin: Mixing up two books there, I think. Don't forget the teenage sex-trip that was Nadja Daviar meeting up with Ryan Mercury, or the confusing affections of Romulus for Mysterious Elf Lady and Loyal Friend's Dog alike.

Ooh! Ooh! I know! Let's bring back the fifty-year-old elf with the sagging breasts whose daughter's half-sister was an ork *you thought your family had problems*

Terminus Experiment might not have a lot to do with shadowrunning, but it had much to do with Shadowrun.

Not really. At least I personally loathe the Supers feel of the late American novels - starting about with Dragonheart, though it had been there right from the beginning (Twist, I'm looking at you!). A matter of taste really, but as far as I am concerned, this isn't Shadowrun, this is Champions with elves and orcs.

It really pleases me to see more Kenson novel work. I adored Crossroads. I like his other books, but the first person in Crossroads really worked for me (despite the fact that I am usually ra-ra Third person.)

Do we know if this Trilogy from Steve will be the same trilogy he was writing (wrote?) for SRD, or if it is new material?

And I confess to a bit of nervousness in regard to "outside of the FanPro SR Plotlines." Does this mean the books are out-of-continuity for the game universe? I'm less keen about that.

:D

I was specifically referring to the line(s) in Stranger Souls (the entire DHS), although for some reason it was a fun reference amongst a couple of users on SL (including one who later went on to write for SR) that was screwed up by joking about dark brown nipples for a long time.

DBN actually has its own cache on SL that means more than the correct wording. It's like the line in The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance that is quoted in POAD:DS (although why in there I don't fully know. I never gave it a lot of thought): "When legend becomes fact, print the legend."

I think what it means is that the novels won't be canon, meaning they won't have an effect on the storyline like the previous novels did (and, more infamously, like the Battletech novels did*).

---
*This deserves an explanation. Battletech novels have, AIUI, always been canon, meaning they've always had an effect upon (and advanced) the storyline. (That was certainly true with regards to the classic BT novels.) This could make things very annoying if you couldn't get the novels, as the sourcebooks would rapidly stop making sense.

SR was similar, but the novels didn't hold quite so much of the storyline, and certainly didn't hold essential pieces like the BT novels did.
