Hints and Rumors

My sometime coauthor, the lovely and talented Peter Dell'Orto, has recently dropped some hints about his in-progress GURPS book. That is, from a certain point of view, nice of him, and I thought I might do the same. On the other hand, I don't want to get ahead of The GURPS Machine in providing information about upcoming books, so I thought I'd tell some extravagant lies and possibly insert something which might be true. So:
  • A hardcover edition seems unlikely, but we're talking about a 3d printed version.
  • The most recent GURPS news has indicated that there are books in progress for the Powers, Dungeon Fantasy, and Transhuman Space series. Mine is, in fact, for all three: GURPS Dungeon Fantasy: Transhuman Space Powers. It covers a range of implants, bioshells, and other content from the Transhuman Space series in DF format.
  • It's got the correct modifier for "shooting a man in Reno, just to watch him die."
  • Working titles for my book include GURPS Ultra-Tech Companion 4: Tile, Linoleum, and Other Manufactured Floor Coverings and (because the Powers That Be want more evocative titles) GURPS Decant Me The Inopportune Gibbon, Maurice.
  • It's an adaptation of Zombie Dice. No, it's not about being a zombie or running from zombies. It's about Zombie Dice.
  • The book will fill a long-open niche in GURPS: ornamental gardening.

It's about time.
