The person heading up this project is no longer with CGL. When they can get someone back on the ePub book project then we should see more SR and BT novels.

I really ned Changling, the rest of Nigel's work, Nix, Jak, Lisa and new stuff as well.

Thanks for taking your time to answer my question. That's very sad, i really wanted a complete collection, i can only hope they will find someone new to continue the Legends series. It's poor customer service not to answer emails and just stop publishing without explanation.

Sorry e-mails didn't get answered; I didn't see any on the subject, but they might not have gone to me. The person working on the Legends line did not leave CGL; he's John Helfers, our fiction editor, and he is still with the company. Pretty much all of the Legends for which we have the rights have been released. With the others, it's a matter of coming to final agreement with the authors or their estates.

Thank you for clearing things up. I really hope you will be able to publish the rest, so i can complete my collection. I will buy them as quickly as they show up. Do you hold the rights for the Crimson Skies books? I wouldn't mind to have them as eBooks as well.

I'm partly guessing here, but gonna say "no, they do not".  CGL only has the license to produce material for Battletech and Shadowrun, the properties of which are owned by Topps (except for video game rights, which are owned by Microsoft).  Crimson Skies, on the other hand, is wholly owned by Microsoft, and CGL currently has no license to that property.

Which is a shame, as Crimson Skies is a fantastic game and game world.

Crimson Skies was a lot of fun. I still hope there will be a new game for PCs or Consoles some day.

Any news on the missing Legend Novels? We are missing all the ones by Nigel Findley and the conclusion of the Dragon Heart triology among other books still

Jak Koke's Beyond the Pale (Dragonheart Saga vol.3) has been released last week for Kindle. Nothing on DTRPG yet.

Another nice find! Hadn't even thought to troll Amazon for this info.

The first book of Stephen Kelson's Kellan Colt Trilogy, Born to Run, is available at long last :)

Once again, it's a Kindle release, and it doesn't seem to be available from DTRPG yet.

I wonder if we're back to one Legend per week like before?

Thats great but I don't do Amazon. Need DTRPG or, would love to see all these ePubs dropped into the Apple Book store. I would buy them all again.

Still proprietary and locking you into amazons system. I donít trust the company and wonít support the company. There are to many other, open, less expensive to produce and less expensive to use systems.
