This week is named Amin. The news:

• The inaugural installment of the first of the new PK (peekitty) series I keep teasing about entered prepress. Expect its release in less than a month.

• Speaking of which . . . Pyramid #3/88 moved into production (and should offer you a hint at the above item next week).

• And while I'm talking of new series, the first volume of the upcoming series by Phil Masters (phil_masters) just went into editing.

• Peter Dell'Orto (peterdellorto) submitted the final draft of his latest GURPS Dungeon Fantasy project.

• The newest manuscript from Bill Stoddard (whswhs) is now in peer review.

• I spent most of my time plinking away at my long-ish writing assignment.

This week is named Vic. The news:

• We released GURPS Dungeon Fantasy Treasures 2: Epic Treasures.

• I made decent progress for the week on my current Big Secret Project™.

Other things happened . . . but mostly, they were incremental "get this stuff done so we can publish" efforts.

This week is named Caoimhe. The news:

• You know those new PK (peekitty) series I keep hinting at? Well, Steven and I finished our production reviews of the first two volumes of one of those. Both are now scheduled as spring releases.

• The first item in the other new PK (peekitty) series went into production.

• I started work on my first long writing project in ages. This means it is PK's (peekitty) turn to manage GURPS while I write. I can give no hints before July or so, though – sorry!

This week is named Krista. The news:

• The most recent GURPS Dungeon Fantasy supplement from Matt Riggsby (wombattery) jumped through the last of its hoops, meaning it should be out very shortly.

• I started my production review of the first volume of one of those new PK (peekitty) series I've been teasing you about.

• PK (peekitty) submitted the final, edited draft of the first item in his other new series.

• Another Matt Riggsby (wombattery) manuscript left peer review and is now with its creator to be shaped into a final draft.

• The newest GURPS Dungeon Fantasy project from Peter Dell'Orto (peterdellorto) just entered peer review.

• Haven't you heard? Thursday Is GURPS-Day!

This week is named Pier. The news:

• The latest GURPS Dungeon Fantasy supplement from Matt Riggsby (wombattery) passed its production review. Look for that soon!

• Bill Stoddard (whswhs) sent back comments on the preliminary PDF of his newest GURPS Powers volume.

• We approved the outline for yet another GURPS Dungeon Fantasy item by Matt Riggsby (wombattery), who is now contracted and hard at work.

I also devoted a significant number of hours to Things That Do Not Get Reported Here. My apologies for such a cryptic and boring remark, but hopefully I'll have some details for you in the fullness of time.

This week is named Renata. Like the first week of any new year, it was dominated by administrative tasks such as working out marketing plans and release schedules – so while there was a lot of news, some of it big, it mostly wasn't the sort I share here. Still, stuff happened:

• We released GURPS Dungeon Fantasy 18: Power Items. You can read about that here.

• I approved art and final text fixes for the latest GURPS Powers volume from Bill Stoddard (whswhs).

• We finalized art and set release dates for the new PK (peekitty) series I've been hinting at for some time now.

I also replied to the authors who had been waiting patiently for me to return from vacation and answer questions on projects that are still being written, reviewed, or revised. For those doing detective work, that includes Peter Dell'Orto (peterdellorto), Matt Riggsby (wombattery), Bill Stoddard (whswhs), and even PK (peekitty).

Happy new year!

This week is named Nick. The news:

• We released Pyramid #3/86: Organizations. You can read about that here.

• One Roger Burton West project and one Bill Stoddard (whswhs) item are now in preliminary PDF form, and with the authors for review. That should give us a good head start on 2016 releases.

• One Matt Riggsby (wombattery) work and one PK (peekitty) manuscript went into peer review for the holidays. Ditto!

• I updated the GURPS News.

And that's it for 2015! As of now, I'm on vacation. My next report will be on January 8, 2016. Happy holidays to all!

This week is named Circe. The news:

• We released GURPS Aliens: Sparrials. You can read about that here.

• We finished getting the next GURPS Dungeon Fantasy release by Matt Riggsby (wombattery) ready to go. You should be able to get your hands on it Real Soon Now.

Another GURPS Dungeon Fantasy volume from Meister Riggsby (wombattery) got its final text fixes and entered production review.

• I finished my review of that non-GURPS Dungeon Fantasy first draft from Riggsby Agha (wombattery) and sent him my comments.

• No, it isn't all about Matt. The most recent first draft from Bill Stoddard (whswhs) turned up ahead of schedule. I'm 60% of the way through my review.

This week is named Allen. The news:
