Hopefully you all like it! Your reaction will determine how much we pursue this in the future. :-)
Just picked it up on amazon.ca along, with GURPS Faeries which was on sale for $14.99.

I'm hoping this experiment proves successful, as there are a number of PDF titles I'd buy on POD.

I immediately jumped on it. I would appreciate if PODs would be organised thematically in omnibuses. As an example, I would have preferred Social Engineering to include "Back to School", "Pulling Ranks" and "Keeping in Contact". No reformatting, just a collection of books. As Bill Stoddard says, SE feels like another core book, the social equivalent of martial arts. That being said SE is already 80+ pages so it's already sizeable.

Understanding that any combination proposed below are most likely non-starters, I'd like to see:

The Madness Dossier
After the End (1+2)
Action (1+2), alternatively a character book (1+3+4+7) and campaign (2+5+6+8).
Monster Hunters (1+2+3) or a similar split character/campaign
Realm Management+City Stat+Boardroom and Curia
Template Toolkit (1+2)
Power-Ups

I am sure I am forgetting a bunch.

I am very happy about the social engineering pdf becoming a PoD book. I think i will be buying it shortly. There are other pdf's i would like to see to get the same treatment.

I like the suggestions of the above poster.
Additions to those, i would like a combined volume of the low tech companions.

Another vote for the power-ups as well.

I'm ordering this one as soon as I get paid. Incidentally, that is a really cover. I'm wondering if the PDF version will be updated with it too?

Also, now that SJ Games is offering PoD via Drivethrurpg as well as Amazon will they consider bringing back hardcover versions of older 4e releases? Some of mine are getting a bit tattered. I'm wondering if the market would support this or if the additional effort required is prohibitive.

I *DEFINITELY* want to see the POD versions of Dungeon Fantasy Exploits, Delvers to GO! and I Smell a Rat.

Also interested in the old Transhuman Space books (I have the rulebook, Broken Dreams and Fifth Wave).

A re-release of Changing Times on POD would be nice, as would POD versions of Bioroid Bazaar, Shell-tech, Bio-Tech 2100, and Martial Arts 2100.

Does anyone have any thoughts on the relative quality of DriveThruRPG and Amazon POD books? I'm deciding which company to order from, and would be grateful for any comparison of or comments on print quality, durability, and the like.

Edited shortly after: I suppose I'd also like to know, given that the DF Companion 3 costs the same on DriveThruRPG and Amazon, whether one service or the other earns SJG more money. But simple comparisons of print quality would be welcome.

I was a little sad to see I cannot get color hardcover of GURPS Magic 4th Edition.

Is there a reason why the color PDFs cannot be used as the source for a hardback color magic book instead of a B&W one? All the SJ Games POD I have gotten from Drivethrurpg have been B&W, when I often buy other companies books in color hardback.

Interesting. Does Amazon have a color or hardback option?
