If Europe is not a myth, apparently it is a far off and isolated land, only reachable brave sailing ships or something.  Scotophobia says at one point "Trying to get information out of Europe right now is becoming almost impossible."  Perhaps with luck some early steam ships are running and we'll have more fulsome news in a few weeks :D

(I get it, they have a word count, so can't cover everything in detail.  It was just that line that cracked me up.  After all, Europe is part of the matrix, connected to the same hosts, etc.  Multiple Jackpointers from Europe, and many of the rest have contacts there.  So why would it be harder to get information from there than anywhere else?)

ETA: to be clear, I love Scotophobia overall, it is one of my favourite ShadowRun books as a GM.  But I can love it, and still see some little issues.
I think it's a joke regarding the real life problems that Scotophobia messed up books that had already been published by Pegasus Press (i.e., they're about six-twelve months ahead in the timeline and didn't know about the coming "week of death").

Europe is a myth, just like Australia. They sound like nice, but we all know there is not such thing as a nice place  ;D

I've seen a useful short bit of recap in an upcoming book, but not allowed to say which one and what, on account of the CGL HTR squad ready to bust down my door if I post it. :-X
Ooo... I bet it has something to do with Europe? :P

I like how they recap a few relevant bits of the metaplots, since these groups tie into those here and there. Definitely can use these.

I'd love to see more of those in future books, personally. *hugely* helpful.

Agreed, I liked that part.  I have those books, but not everyone will, so that context would be important for some.  Even having read those books, the summary was nice as a "out of that big book, what is the game focusing on, moving forward."
