Speaking of GenCon ...

Does anyone know if Mongoose had any advance copies of their edition of Stars Without Number on hand at GenCon? I know I'm going to regret asking, because the answer will be "Yes" and I'm many miles away from the con, but I figured I'd do so anyway, since I'm rather keen to get hold of the new version with its 40 pages of exclusive content.


  1. Yea, verily, they do. I swung by to check out the print quality, and was pleased with what I saw. Good, tight binding, sturdy boards, and crisp interior. As for typos and errata, well, if there are any of them in there, it's my fault, since I'm the one who provided the source files- but since almost everything but the 40 bonus pages is taken from the original, typo-fixed source files, they should be at a minimum.

  2. Alas, I shall have to wait for September for my copy. Something to look forward to, I guess!

  3. Man, I didn't see them! I need to swing back by! It's on my short list!

  4. Hey James,

    I Snagged you one of the last 3 copies from the Mongoose booth this morning. Let me know where you want it sent to.


  5. Brian,

    That's very kind. Drop me a note at and I'll send you my address. I can also send you money via PayPal to cover the cost of the book.
