If I didn't already own these books I would buy them immediately. That said I am still tempted. As a person who prefers printed media to reading from a screen, thank you.

Wow. I already own the originals, but I'd still be willing to pay for new ones with errata fixed. But at the moment, there's the 40% off PDF sale, plus the Ogre kickstarter, plus the two new GURPS hardbacks...I'm not made of money! :)

So hopefully this will stick around into the new year, when I should be able to circle back to it.

One Ultra Tech ordered, even though I normally like electronic copies much more (search!), but for gear books the combination of the two is best and since I missed the previous printing of the softcover UT and the original hardcover has seen better days with the pages falling off...

I also liked the fairly low shipping cost to Finland, so overall: Nice.

Just errata that we've collected, nothing more. (That "last updated date" is wrong, though; the elemental erratum was pretty recent.)

Interesting choice of books to reprint, though Magic's been out of print and is arguably necessary for DF.

I assume there are still Hardcovers of the other books out there.

It looks like they can be purchased through Amazon's regular website as well. This is notable because Amazon free shipping, gift cards, and promotional codes may be used with them.

GURPS Magic

GURPS Thaumatology

GURPS Ultra-Tech

I own all three but if I were currently running GURPS (alas, I m not) I would buy them all the same, especially Magic and Ultratech: the incorporated errata can really make a difference, I think. In general, magnificent news.

And for Magic, it's always nice to have another book to pass around.
