If I was CGL, and I’m not, I wouldn’t be releasing a book full of old art when there’s a bucketload of new art just around the corner...

I have the draft to edit, but having trouble getting traction on art. It’s not forgotten, but don’t expect to see it anytime soon. Months, at best.

Soooo...you're saying it's full of tanks?  :D

I am aware of that fact....just thinking that a release date of March 2020 would tie-in with the Clan kickstarter product shipping nicely

Had my druthers, it'd come out well before KS product started shipping. Keeping momentum off the KS is crucial. But I'm not in the driver's seat on this one.

traction on art...oh man..don't tell me the fan funded stuff is delaying it.

Not previous to the KS which ended 9 days ago, no.

Now Available - A Bonfire of Worlds and BattleCorps Vol. 6 Now in Print!

At long last - BattleTech fiction enthusiasts can fill two holes in their collection with the print-on-demand release of two much-requested titles: BattleCorps Anthology Vol. 6: Front Lines and, for the first time in print, Steven Mohan Jr.'s A Bonfire of Worlds!

Discuss these new releases here!



BattleCorps Vol. 6: Front Lines

HONOR. DESPERATION. JIHAD.

Inhuman cybernetic soldiers invade a peaceful world, bringing terror and misery in the name of a new flag. A young soldier, part of the most maligned military machine in history, struggles to find meaning in his service. And the prince of a star-spanning empire discovers that not even he can protect the people he loves.

Ten stories of combat, honor, betrayal, and death fill the pages of Front Lines: BattleCorps Anthology Volume 6.

Readers will recognize familiar names in BattleTech lore among the authors: Steven Mohan, Jr., and Blaine Lee Pardoe, who welcome newer writers such as Jason Hansa, Christopher Purnell and Craig A. Reed, Jr. These writers have shaped the direction of the BattleTech universe. In 2009, with these stories, they told the stories that demonstrated the indomitable will that has carried BattleTech readers across more than 25 years of publication.

A Bonfire of Worlds by Steven Mohan Jr.

GALAXY AFLAME…

The universe has gone dark. Interstellar communications have been lost across the Inner Sphere, threatening the corporate giant ComStar—and maybe civilization itself. Risking everything on a last chance for survival, Comstar has kidnapped the engineering genius Tucker Harwell, hoping he can unravel the mystery of the blackout. But Tucker isn’t just working on why it happened... he’s also trying to figure out who’s behind it.

Meanwhile, Khan Malvina Hazen solidifies her hold on a purified Clan Jade Falcon while hunting for the next enemy to crush under the talons of her brutal Mongol Doctrine. Hundreds of light-years away, Clan Wolf is carving out territory along the Lyran Commonwealth/Free Worlds League border—and Alaric Wolf is primed to make his moves in the halls of power.

Plans years in the making begin to come together across hundreds of star systems, and secrets hidden for decades will finally be revealed while an empire goes up in flames…

Is that totally new art for Bonfire?  I do not recall seeing that Savage Wolf before, and I think the other cover was fine but it was MWDA-style.

So is Frontlines available as a ebook now too?

Same applies to Shattered Fortress. What's going on?

EDIT newer TRO seems to have smaller file size, credit page says "corrected third printing", and updated one email at least.

I'd love to see a synopsis/rundown of the changes between this and previous editions, if anyone who has them can be bothered. Pretty please?

I'd start by the errata thread and comparing your previously downloaded version and this most recent version.

Ah, right. Probably stuff getting new print runs and getting errata folded in? At least for the TRO.
Shattered Fortress doesn't say "corrected second printing" or anything like that, at least i didn't see notes like that.

Only thing I can think of with Shattered Fortress is showing the Templar Julian is given being a Omni rather than standard.

Why would it be changed?
It is fixed-tech version with Command Console. Sure, new rules would allow making it an Omni, but it is reasonable command platform as it is, and predates the rule change.
(Also RS never make distinction between Omni and standard.)

EDIT Incidentally, there are no changes to the RS.

The RS does let you know . . . its a TLR2-J . . . the Omni version is a TLR2-O, -OA, -OB, or whatever.

Any guesses what we are getting in tonight's KS infoblast?

and we should get the 2nd Founding of the Clans novel in December.  Is there 1st novel even available as a ebook yet?  I do not remember it, but my Kindle is down and so I am waiting on its replacement to arrive.

Fall from Glory isn't out yet in ebook or PoD format.

I am wondering if I read part of that on BC, I seem to remember some stuff involving Dana Kufahl and her dealing with Andrey's death.

Founding of the Clans I @$340k says the 2nd novel by the end of the year but I cannot find anything about the 1st being available.  Founding of the Clans II @$390 says 2nd novel will be delivered by the end of the campaign.

I think the wording on that got messed up, but unless I missed it we did not get the 1st Founding book yet?

Oh Cubby . . .
