E-CAT35260-Combat-Manual-Mercenaries_Cover_580wide-240x300A Draconis Combine warrior struggles with immoral orders in the First Succession War. A House Davion MechWarrior participates in a risky heist as part of Operation Guerrero. A history buff battles the Word of Blake during the Liberation of Terra. What do these MechWarriors have in common? Each one pilots the same BattleMech, a survivor that has been repaired and rebuilt countless times throughout its long and bloody 300-year lifespan.

The seventy-ton GHR-5H Grasshopper can outmaneuver and outlast some of the most fearsome enemy ’Mechs, making it an invaluable asset to battlefield commanders. Even an incapacitated Grasshopper will be rebuilt to fight another day, with a new pilot at its controls, because MechWarriors can be replaced, but ’Mechs cannot.


In BattleTech: Legacy, thirteen all-new stories chronicle the fortunes and tragedies of a single ’Mech across several tumultuous points in its wide-ranging combat history. Veteran BattleTech authors Kevin Killiany and Craig A. Reed, Jr. bookend this exciting collection, while other familiar names and new blood explore important moments in this ’Mech’s history of constant, unmitigated warfare that leaves no corner of the Inner Sphere untouched.

Sprawl Stories.front coverThe Sixth World is a place of danger and few places depict that danger better than Seattle. Where the sprawl expands, klic after klic, in all directions while trying to swallow the Emerald City. It ‘s the home to millions who struggle to survive the hazards of decaying neighborhoods and the scrupulous eyes of their neighbors.

Sprawl Stories contains four Shadorun novellas:

“Neat” by Russell Zimmerman
“DocWagon 19” by Jennifer Brozek
“Big Dreams” by R.L. King
“Blind Magic” by Dylan Birtolo
Each of these novellas takes  a look at life through the eyes of those that live there.  A burnt out mage is now searching for missing person – nothing can wrong there! Then a reporter goes on a ride-along with a high-octane DocWagon crew.  Hmm, something tells me to buckle up! Oh did I mention live on Trideo? Yeah, that’s a story for you. An ex-wageslaver gets caught between powerful forces while looking into his uncle’s death.  And a shaman must recover from an injury that threatens her way of life while extracting revenge on those who double-crossed her!
Yes the Sprawl is the wild side of Seattle. Are you prepared to walk in it?
