We've just released an Eight Page Preview of Mr Johnson's Little Black Book - this preview includes the Introduction, Table of Contents, and a sample of each section of the book: GMing advice, non-player characters, short adventure outlines, and locations.
The Daily Buzz: October 3rd, 2004
Mr Johnson's Little Black Book is available in stores now, and State of the Art: 2064 should be in stores the first full week of October! Also, State of the Art: 2063 and Shadows of North America have both been reprinted, so you can once again find these near-essential books on store shelves!
To coincide with the release of SOTA: 2064, we have State of the Art: 2064 Wallpaper designed by cover artist Fred Hooper!
We've - again - revamped the Shadowrun Missions section, to give you more information about the various Missions available for download.
Also now available is some unpublished material that ties in with Shadows of Europe - a full writeup on european playboy Johnny Spinrad.

Well, as most people know by now, Mr Johnson's Little Black Book was available at GenCon, while State of the Art: 2064 didn't quite make it. Both books should be in stores this month!
Additionally, several people have reported problems with recent Shadowrun Missions downloads; I think the problem has been narrowed down to the way Windows XP handles files built with certain versions of StuffIt. Regardless, the files have been rebuilt and reuploaded - Shadowrun Missions Downloads
