We will absolutely keep adding books to the program when possible.
Like! I appreciate this happening. I don't live in foreign countries but I have to think making it more affordable overseas just helps GURPS to thrive and continue on which is a good thing.

I admit..I've just ordered a couple more. My main issue now is maintaining the spousal approval level high enough to keep doing this :)

Oh, absolutely. The shipping costs are murder.

My copy of GURPS Conan arrived yesterday, and I'm so pleased to have this in book form again! This was one of my most-used books for a long time before losing it with a box of other books during a move years ago. The quality of the printing is good and it arrived in a reasonable amount of time.

Now to replace my PDF version of Powers and GURPS Japan and ...

Are we allowed to talk about how GURPS Social Engineering is now available for POD on DriveThruRPG?

This is the first of its kind, right? With a new cover and everything?

Kind of. A few other 4e PDFs have had experimental POD versions, which has involved new covers. I've got a couple on my shelf. That said, I think this may be the first general release of what was previously a PDF-only book as POD.

And, of course, I've purchased it. There are a number of 4e PDFs which I'd like to have in physical form, so I'd like more of this, please.

It's also available on Amazon! (I still need to update websites...)

This is the first item with this specific trajectory, yes. We've had other PDFs that have made the conversion to print (GURPS Supers for Fourth Edition, GURPS Spaceships, etc.), that have later been made available as POD; and we've had items that have only existed in print as POD (Pyramid Dungeon Collection, several of the Dungeon Fantasy RPG items).

Hopefully you all like it! Your reaction will determine how much we pursue this in the future. :-)

And now I can have a beautiful print copy on my own shelves!
