The most recent hint by Kromm has me stumped. Blade: Trinity?

MH1: Combatants?

My idea wasn't that there was a chronological ordering to the books. Just different things covered. The End would be for monster hunters in an apocalyptic setting. Surviving would cover a (somewhat) related trope, where the monsters and the hunters chase each other, making life a little more difficult for the latter.

The more you make me think about it, the more unlikely it seems :p :)

Rev PK tweet seems to imply that it is a figurative, rather than a literal fit.

The post you link to doesn't contain that. I'm not sure what that means in context. Drake thinks that Abigail is a worthy foe, Abigail thinks that Drake's entire race should be genocided with biological weapons. What C-word describes that?

Jason "PK" Levine turned in the first draft of the fourth volume of his GURPS Monster Hunters series. No, I won't reveal the title. I'll just say, "Well, kind of like Abigail and Drake, I guess."
So fourth book, not first.

Wait, does the Higgs boson qualify as a monster?

As the Line Editor, some hints:

C is not the same as the one from 1981.
TM has nothing to do with Andrew's old crew.
TE is the name of at least five songs and three bands.
S is not the same as the one from 2004, either.
