After several hours sloggin through three weeks of the B5 newsgroup
items, I finally remembered what I wanted to tell you guys on RN.

I got the FASA 1995 Catalog today, at the local gaming store (Yeah!
Things For Thinkers!), but only because they had an extra one and I'm in
there every week just to make sure I don't miss anything. Hell, everyone
who works there knows me on sight. But in any case, on to the important

First of all, it kinda looks like FASA is slacking on SR products in 95,
instead focusing more on Earthdawn and Battletech (and with a new cartoon
and toys, I would too). So it looks like only three new source books, no
modules, and one new novel. This does not include items already published.
There were also NO release dates given, which sucked, but anyway, here's
what they have in mind.

Aztlan (Cool cover, I think it's almost the same as one of the color
plates in the Grimoire)

Corporate Security (Cover shown, book is about how THEY protect
themselves from Runners. Will include GEAR!!!)

Cybertech (nothing given, only listed in the back with the ISBN numbers.
Prolly (my guess) won't actually make it out this year)

"Who Hunts the Hunter" (novel by Nyx Smith, about Tikki the feline

The only other "new products" were Bug City and Divided Assets, which are
out already. Sorry, no Virtual Realities II.

In any case, hope this helps a few people, and it is now Bedtime for
Bonzo. Goodnight.
