Our main announcements were:

Our main announcements were:
1. X-Risks, the threats/monsters book, is almost done.
2. The next hardcover after that will be about crime.
3. We're working on a card game, Verminopolis, about urban wildlife fighting each other for "food" (garbage).
4. More PDF/POD short EP books are in the works, including one we're calling "Where Do Babies Come From?" (working title only).
5. The Fate Core world book will go into a second round of playtesting by September (Fate games at Gen Con this year were run using the latest rules, which are waaaaay simpler than the playtest that crashed & burned in November '14).

Great news about X-Risks...I am insanely excited for that book. The short-fiction anthology also sounds super cool. I will definitely be purchasing both as soon as they drop.

After Jack recovers from his con crud, that's his first priority. :)

There's a single anthology. About 1/3 of the material is fiction reprinted from the hardcovers; the rest is new stuff from authors we haven't published previously. Most of them are SF folks, not so much from the gaming side of geekdom (although there are some like Wes S. who straddle).

We're close to getting it off to press.

"and more!"

Does it happen that James S.A. Corey is among those "and more!" category of the list?
I sure hope so! Their Expanse novels just scream Eclipse Phase to me!

Terribly excited to hear more books are coming out soon...now what was this about Modifier Cards?

Modifier Cards in a short while will be incredibly sweet.

I mean, the ability to remember traumas et al is already a good one, but combined with the announced future morphless character sheet, that's gonna make bookkeeping your character a LOT easier.

(Yeah, Morphless character sheet. If I had design skills rather than simple ideas, I'd have already made one.)
