Read on for information about LotFP releases and news.
14.03.2015: Stuck Between Friday the 13th and the Ides of March
A Red & Pleasant Land, No Salvation for Witches, The Idea from Space, Death Frost Doom, and Tower of the Stargazer have finally landed Stateside at distribution and will now be filtering out to retail and you'll be able to pick them up from your local game store.
That took way too long. The books themselves were delayed for months to begin with, and then the distro freight shipment usually arrives 4-6 weeks after I receive my copies. In this case it took THREE MONTHS, which is completely ridiculous and I need to make sure there's not that kind of delay again. Retail is just one sales avenue among many in the LotFP business plan, but I don't mean to make them last-in-line...
Also, about some behind-schedule stuff:
Broodmother SkyFortress' second attempt at a layout is complete (160 pages!), and Ian MacLean is working on over 40 pages of art for it. A few of them in full color. That'll take some months. This will be hardcover.
Towers Two's layout is complete (112 pages!), and Jeremy Duncan is working on over 50 pieces of full color art for it. That'll take hopefully just a couple months. This will be hardcover.
Barry Blatt's England Upturn'd is in layout right now, 128 pages at the moment but that may change.
Rafael Chandler has turned in the text for World of the Lost, which will now be 4-booklet + cloth map boxed set.
Zzarchov Kowolski's The Pale Lady was recently released to backers of the Better Than Any Man campaign (yes it's laaatteeee), and Andre Novoa's the Squid, The Cabal, and the Old Man is currently in layout (50 pages long on last go-through).
Also, the reprint of Vornheim is delayed as the layout person has taken leave, but Zak's next project's first draft is in hand as well.
Plus there are a billion zillion other things going on (Ref book work!). LotFP, as always, slow but worth the wait.

27.11.2014: Happy Fun Book Release Day in ONE WEEK
The printer confirms that the reprints will be delivered by December 4 at the latest, so that means A Red & Pleasant Land, The Idea from Space, No Salvation for Witches, Death Frost Doom, and Tower of the Stargazer will finally be available for sale at that time.
I know my previous update here says I'd start preorders right after that confirmation, but let's be safe and wait until it's confirmed that everything is OK and ready to ship, OK?
10.10.2014: New Releases Delayed
The new books were delivered today as scheduled, but there was an error in one of the books that was not present in the proof. I learned of this error too late to contact the printer today, so I have to wait until Monday morning to see how long it will take the printer to provide corrected books. Once I have this information, sales will go live as a "pre-order" with orders shipping when the corrected books arrive.
You have no idea how sorry I am about this. (All offers with expiration dates will be appropriately extended.)
06.10.2014: This Week!
The printer says that all five of the new books will arrive here at the end of this week. A Red & Pleasant Land, Death Frost Doom, No Salvation for Witches, The Idea from Space, and Tower of the Stargazer will all go up for sale as soon as they're loaded in.
To promote these releases (the combined print run of all these titles is 12,000 copies!), we've changed the website background, so we now have "our heroes" up there on the right with elements of these adventures- Our Alice is wearing the Alice dress for Red & Pleasant Land, the Flame Princess is holding a frozen skull from Death Frost Doom, there's Idea from Space's Manakata idol, and Melissa is holding both a telescope and a magic item from the horrorsplatterfreakdeathfest No Salvation for Witches.
And your advisories: Of these releases, NSFW is, well, NSFW, with tons of gore and nudity and some gory nudity. IfS has a lot of nude musclemen in the artwork but is otherwise inoffensive I think, and RPL, DFD, and ToS should all be fine for everyone.
