Okay, here we go. My wife thought it would be good to put the books and articles I’ve written on display, a shrine to my ego of sorts, so here it is. When I saw that Hairbrained was looking for BattleTech collections to help hype their awesome Kickstarter, I thought I’d offer up mine. The really good stuff is at the bottom of this post.

Not to mention credit in a number of other sourcebooks and material.
One of my favorite items – my original sourcebook material from the write-ups of the early BattleTech universe:
I keep this in a binder. Just to whet your appetites – here’s some sample shots. Photocopies of the original artwork from the 3025 Tech Readout with THE ORIGINAL DESIGN SPECS done in hand at FASA (and few by yours truly).
Look at the back of the map!
Original Catapult Designs. Oops! 65.1 tons!?
The Maps of the Inner Sphere. Photocopied on the back of Traveller Deck Plans by Jordan – showing the original hand map of the Inner Sphere. Things were on a shoestring back in those days. No – I have not gone through this to see if I can find The Hidden Worlds – but they may very well be on there!
Printouts of original material (dot matrix) for Tech readouts and Snord’s Irregulars. Also in included a shot of the original regimental lists! This book is a treasure trove of original BattleTech documents and designs. It’s always a treat to go through it.
