Default Re: The 2010 e23 Releases and Speculation Thread

Upcoming Products

In addition to these forums, my sources include the blogs of Dr. Kromm, Phil Masters, and William H. Stoddard and Rev. Pee Kitty's Twitter. Roger Burton West's GURPS Fourth Edition: What's Coming Up is more exhaustive and less speculative than this thread will be.

Space Gamer
Starting the week of 6/24/10, SJGames has begun uploading their back issues of Space Gamer. Per Steven Marsh "new" issues will be uploaded each Thursday along with the usual e23 releases.

The issues released under SJG's tenure comprised #27-76 and the 6-issue run of Fantasy Gamer.

Upcoming Pyramid Issues
Monsters In Space!
Thaumatology II
Psionics
Silver Ships and Solar Skies


Taken from here. It warns that "the exact order of "TBA" issues is subject to change," but the order listed has equaled the order released thus far. Issues almost always come out on the second-to-last Thursday of the month.
