Shrapnel: The Official BattleTech Magazine

Picking up the battle-standard for BattleTech fiction, Shrapnel: The Official BattleTech Magazine continues the tradition of hard-hitting stories set in the war-torn interstellar future of the 31st century and beyond. Fire up your ‘Mech’s fusion reactor, secure your neurohelmet, and wade into battle with stories from the merciless front lines of the Clan invasion, conspiracy theory articles, game scenarios, and more–from veteran BattleTech authors, fan favorites, and some new recruits.

Originally funded by the BattleTech: Clan Invasion Kickstarter campaign, Shrapnel will be published on an ongoing basis several times per year.
