Eclipse Phase is in stock on Amazon.com again! -- after less than a day back on the site, our sales rank is looking rather nice: #17,693 in Books and #35 in Books > Science Fiction & Fantasy (Beyond a ton of D&D and Pathfinder stuff ... not bad company to be in, really!)
Posthuman Studios is pleased to announce that the reprint of Eclipse Phase is working its way into game stores and chain bookstores. We are working with our new publishing partners, Sandstorm Productions, to get more product to you as soon as possible! We are following up the Eclipse Phase core book reprint with the Eclipse Phase Gamemaster Pack, and later this summer you'll see Sunward: The Inner System, our first sourcebook.
Eclipse Phase has garnered great reviews, critical praise, and fired up the imagination of all who have read it. Demand has been high since it went out of stock earlier this year, and we are very excited to make it available again -- but this is not the "second printing" we thought would happen. Without going into gory details, instead of the second printing with corrections coming off the presses ... an exact duplicate of the first printing was produced by our previous publisher. We didn't learn of this until after all the books were printed and shipping to the USA.

We’ve been fans of Eclipse Phase since it premiered. And just as big of fans of Rob, Adam, and Brian—the creative masterminds behind the ground-breaking transhumanist game. So when the opportunity came up to partner Sandstorm and Posthuman Studios, we jumped. (And threw down.)
You’ve gotten a taste of what Posthuman can create with Eclipse Phase—and we’re absolutely thrilled to be partnering with them to bring a full lineup of new Eclipse Phase books to fans in the coming year. We’re also very excited to be partnering with Posthuman to bring new games to the gaming market, such as the tongue-in-cheek card game of Celebrity Trash Culture, Paparazzi!
Ebook readers are gaining in popularity, and we want to bring Eclipse Phase fiction to them. Whether you have a Kindle (or use the Kindle app for your phone/computer or an iPad or a Sony reader, or almost any other e-ink reader ... we should have you covered here. But, this is a bit of an experiment for us, and we've already discovered some hitches in the Amazon Kindle service. Namely, it tries to charge international customers two dollars more than customers in the USA. A $2 price increase on a a $0.99 title is obscene! So, with that in mind:
