There is no question you did a great job on this project and I look forward to others from you and I hope other authors.
Personally I think this project, the POD and Drivethrough moves and the announcements for TFT are going to be very good for GURPS visibility.

That said, after being so heavily focused on dungeon crawling for so long (which, yes, I've totally been a part of and depending on the the Pyramid Dungeon Collection goes may continue to be a part of), it's nice to see a slate of generic and other-genre works coming up for GURPS. I'm particularly interested in seeing Phil's new steampunk works.
Those were not RPG products though, so I did not expect any carryover. Most of my Munchkin friends dont even know who SJG is so no real company loyalty.
And I second your last statement, I really am looking forward to more diversity. Other than my own project the one I personally am the most interested in is Kelly Pederesen's Social Engineering project. I like the topic and most of his Pyramid articles and this will be his first book.

Other than my own project, I'm personally most interested in the Powers supplement, which I believe is yours, and which is of direct relevance to my current GURPS Fantasy campaign.

Thank you! By my calculations it wont get through the production process until early next year so please join the test if you dont want to lead it. If it does well I have followup and related projects, including one big one and two of those are influenced by your books. I'll hint that that would be Social Engineering and City Stats.
FYI My Chalice World setting has a take on Fae that uses ideas from GURPS Powers: The Weird and Christoper Rices article How Very Tempting in Pyramid #3/67

I actually thought of volunteering to lead the playtest on this one, but (a) I don't know if it might overlap with my own playtest and (b) I've been called up for jury duty and that makes me hesitant to commit. But it's my #1 choice to playtest.

Kromm News is out!
We got some tidbits too!
His DF item is about monsters and has moved to the Art stage.
Playtest has started on GURPS Steampunk 3: Soldiers and Scientists

I think Chris's Monster Hunters is up next for play testing then Kelly's Social Engineering item, but that is just a guess on my part.
Anyone caught a glimpse of PK in the wild lately?

News out and updated.
Kromm says Monsters book is very close to release.
The Pyramid collection item has had the choices made for whats to be included!
Kromm also started a short Action series item.
And finally some unnamed long stalled items got unstuck.

Yeah, I was sad.
However today's news includes a bit that PK's Monster Hunters 6 project started moving forward again.
Kromm's Action item also saw progress.

So does that mean PK's major project is wrapping up?

Do we know itís PKís MH title thatís #6?

It could just as easily be Christopher Riceís (now headed for playtest).

In fact, I suspect thatís more likely.
