I wanted to ask what Catalyst's plans were regarding the mass release of the last two anthologies, which (so far as I know) were only released in print form at GenCon 2016 (Front Lines) and GenCon 2017 (Legacy). 

Will those be available via print-on-demand or electronically this year?

Shiny thing!" - Maximillian Liao, "My Triumph", audio dictation, 3030.  Unpublished.

Fantastic.  Looking forward to it.

OK, i brought this up again at the development meeting, unfortunately I don't have anything concrete to tell you.
They will be coming out, there isn't anything really keeping them from being released, other than they're exploring new ways to release the fiction, and so these are being held back until some of that solidifies (as opposed to just being released electronically). I was almost given a date, but tongues were bitten at the last minute. I'm sorry, but they are going to be released.
