One week from now we'll be in Pittsburgh. Thursday night, the calm before the storm. Come Friday, the dealers room will open and the fans will flood in and hopefully many of them will stop by our booth! Here's the new stuff that we'll be offering for sale this year:
A brand new game based on the Nordguard graphic novel series by Tess Garman and Teagan Gavet, will find you attempting to trek across a landscape of randomly placed cards, working collaboratively with your other team members to make it to your destination before time runs out.
The game comes in two versions: the standard edition (swp.im/p/ngcard), which comes with a full set of cards and four dice, and the deluxe edition (swp.im/p/ngcardx), which includes a metal sled token for tracking your progress, four extra dice, and a Nordguard-branded canvas belt pouch to carry your game with you at all times (that you happen to be wearing a belt).
The first 50 of the pre-orders sold out online. We will have another 50 available at Anthrocon. To be fair to those who won't be there on Friday, we'll put out about a third each of the three days that the dealer's room is open, to give everyone a fair chance. (Get up early! Fight that hangover and do it!)
This novel is a fantasy, the first of a two-book series detailing Angharad's entry into Shraeven and her growing awareness of the challenges, both political and personal, that lie ahead of her. This fast-paced story will engage readers immediately through the character of Angharad, at once world-weary and a novice to this new world. The book is both written and illustrated by M.C.A. Hogarth.(swp.im/p/fotgg)
This fantasy novel about an unlikely hero named Bobcat was originally published by Tor Fantasy in 1998. Sofawolf Press is reprinting the volume with all new art by Lauren Henderson (a.k.a. Louvelex) in anticipation of our publication of Payne's second novel in the series, "Rat's Reputation". (swp.im/p/bljag )

2012 sees the introduction of e-books from Sofawolf Press! We're celebrating by making these cyber huskies the design for our newest T-shirt design. We'll be releasing more information about the e-books themselves after Anthrocon. (swp.im/p/stsh12)
