-GURPS Monster Hunters 4 (by Jason "PK" Levine; outline approved and writing started as of January 21st)
Pure speculation on what the actual book topics will be:

It might be similar to how Action and DF have been. Templates for the first book, exploits/adventures for the second, the third book for powerups or special abilities campaigns (though from the hint it would seem to have stats for monsters as wel) and maybe the 4th a specific set of rules for a class/type of game.
