    A warning regarding Brandon Sanderson's The Emperor's Soul

    Please do note that my Hugo Award-winning novella The Emperor’s Soul is the only part of the bundle that can’t be included worldwide for licensing reasons — it’s not in the bundle if you buy it from the UK or Commonwealth / former Commonwealth countries (except for Canada, where it is included in the bundle). I apologize for throwing this wrench into things, but my UK publisher has exclusive distribution rights in those countries.

    It most certainly is! I've bought every one of their former video game book bundles and this one is surely their best yet.

    John's and HG101's books are must-haves for fans of japanese games. As someone who grew up playing both pen and paper D&D and the CRPGs it inspired, I'm looking forward to reading Designers & Dragons.

    I would agree that it's the best one yet - I contributed to Kickstarters of three of these, and have a number in print already, yet I'm still tempted! Scroll in particular stands out as one that I'd like to have a shuffle through.
