Ok, please read this one and tell me what is missing. Also I need some
publishers or authors for some of these. If you knwo them, let me know.


In addition to the standard FASA-published materials, there are a great
number of sourcebooks available for other games and systems that can
provide a good many ideas for inclusion in your Shadowrun world. To this
end, included is a listing of many of these books.

NOTE: Use of these books will change Shadowrun (for example, by
adding spaceflight and other ultra-high technology), and it
is recommended only for expierienced GMs.

You can add one more. This is probably not real well known as it is new,
but the system is like that of Torg's.

The copyright to their contents probably lies with the original authors of the individual messages, but since they were published in an electronic forum that anyone could subscribe to, and the logs were available to subscribers and most likely non-subscribers as well, it's felt that re-publishing them here is a kind of public service.
