Indeed it was. And what a piece of work that was. My favorite book to date!

It was no Shadowbeat, but it was good!

Fun factoid! While there are books called Rigger 2, Rigger 3, and Rigger 4, there was no 'Rigger 1'.

Wouldn't 'Rigger 1' be the one that's titled 'Rigger's Black Book'?

In a way, yes, but we've never had another Black Book.

I wouldn't mind changing that...

Where am I going? And why am I in a hand basket ???

Remember: You can't fix Stupid. But you can beat on it with a 2x4 until it smartens up! Or dies.

You could always try to get the powers that be to make Rigger 5 another Rigger's Black Book before it goes to layout and cover design.

Nope. Too inefficient.

But if you want the style, there are a half-dozen e-books with 1 vehicle per page. Some were collected in Runner's Black Book 2073 and some in Runner's Black Book 2074.

Oh hell no, not like that. I was just talking about putting that as the title.

Short update on upcoming releases and product pipeline:
  • Rigger 5...now called Rigger 5.0...is in layout and proofing
  • Market Panic (Corporate book) is in queue for to follow shortly on the heels of Rigger 5.0
  • A new "quick" Shadowrun-themed card game is in development...nothing to do with Crossfire
  • Seattle Sprawl (boxed set) development continues
  • With the Sioux Nation series coming to a close, the next city in focus will be Morocco; draft of the first e-book has been submitted and is in review
  • One-off e-books covering San Francisco and Metropole are also in the works
  • A sequel to the Vladivostok Gambit is in process
  • The digital index (mentioned this past summer) is still in process, but will likely not be getting a lot of primary focus until Rigger 5.0 and Market Panic are nailed down
  • Customer service issues have been noted are being addressed; new processes and systems have been implemented and their impact is being reviewed. Will continue to provide updates on this. In the interim, please forward any open issues to me via PM and I'll get them logged.

I think that should cover most of the winter/spring releases in queue. The summer schedule is still in flux...will be updating on that we move further along.

You guys might want to go ahead and bump this off the list because there's no way to satisfy most modern consumers (especially among the gamer community). The fallacy of "the customer is always" right has gotten people far too spoiled and overly entitled.

We'll have to agree to disagree on this one. This issues I've been working on have nothing to do with "entitlement".

I agree with AJ this is not about things like a couple days late.  Some people have waited many months after the product was in the stores to get their order with out any communication from customer service I am in retail and this is a major problem and I am glade that it is being addressed.

Sweet, thanks for the update AJ

Do you believe in a greater WIRELESS, an Invisible(WiFi) All Seeing(detecting those connected- at least if within 100'), All Knowing(all online data) Presence that we can draw upon for Wisdom(downloads & updates), Strength (wifi boni) and Comfort (porn) or do you turn your back on it  (Go Offline)?
