Did I miss something? The novel e-pubs appear to be gone from DriveThru and the BattleShop.

Weird, I'm glad I picked up the two Legend of the Jade Phoenix epubs when I did.

Hmm... something brewing...

DOOOM!

Or perhaps some new arrangements for the novels are made? Perhaps there will be new ones soon? Or old available as books?

No, Catalyst has not lost the right to publish BattleTeh or Shadowrun fiction(print or epub). Our licensor has requested that we temporarily take down the files while they investigate an issue regarding works of fiction contracted by previous companies. We fully expect to return these classic works to the online venues soon, and are also working to bring out new collections and brand new short fiction as well. Stay tuned.

If you see anyone on other forums discussing this, feel free to post this response.

Thanks!

Thank you, Randall. That's actually what I guessed was happening. And I asked specifically because someone on RPG.net brought it up, so I'll repost there. Thanks.

More importantly, does this have anything to do with HPG blackout?

No matter what Randall says, I think it does...

Nope no update -- Have no inside knowledge except the lack of novels is not CGL's fault, but there are things (What things I don't know) on several fronts that is keeping novels off the table at this time.... :'(

Well there's the new(ish) Blitzkrieg e-novel format and I'm pretty satisfied so far with the two two-part stories we've got.
