Mindjammer returns! Mindjammer Press, a new roleplaying and fiction imprint, has announced its plans to publish the Mindjammer roleplaying game, the far future transhuman space opera setting, and fiction lines.

“This is a very exciting opportunity,” said Sarah Newton, owner of Mindjammer Press and author of the ENnie Award-winning setting and fiction line. “We’ve taken the decision to bring all the Mindjammer fiction and RPG projects under a single umbrella, to allow us to concentrate on producing the new second edition and its supplements, as well as future novels in the Mindjammer series. We’re looking forwards to a regular release of products to support the Mindjammer setting and community, beginning this week with a re-launch of ‘Mindjammer’, the first novel in the series.”

Mindjammer Press’ plans for the setting include the immediate release of the Mindjammer novel, and the publication of “Mindjammer: The Expansionary Era”, the second edition Mindjammer core book, in spring 2013. The new edition will see vastly expanded content, new and detailed background material, and all new artwork, and will be fully compatible with the FATE 3 Core rules. It will be followed later in 2013 by the “Solenine” campaign pack, based on the setting for the first novel, a new and revamped “Black Zone” campaign, and “Transcendence”, the second novel in the Mindjammer series. Mindjammer Press
plans 3-4 releases per year thereafter.

Sarah, who will be lead writer and production manager on the Mindjammer lines, concluded: “We’ve had a lot of material waiting in the wings for several years and, with the imminent launch of the FATE 3 Core rules, I can’t think of a better time to produce the second edition. We’re looking forwards to providing the Mindjammer fans with an expanding line of transhuman space opera adventures, supplements, and fiction.”

MINDJAMMER PRESS is a new imprint, based in France, founded to publish Mindjammer. Its founders are Sarah Newton and Christopher McWilliam, who will be responsible for the production studio and financial management respectively. Prior to founding Mindjammer Press, Sarah worked for Cubicle 7 Entertainment Ltd as production manager, lead developer, and head of editorial. She is the author of Mindjammer, Legends of Anglerre, The Chronicles of Future Earth, the Zero Point campaign for Achtung! Cthulhu, and numerous fiction works. She continues to work freelance throughout the industry. Christopher brings invaluable experience in administration and entertainment management to the team.

About Dave McAlister

Dave has been roleplaying for over 30 years, having played and/or run most mainstream systems with the espionage genre being an early favourite. So much so that, in 1999, he started Modus Operandi. That same year he joined the Sarbreenar "Living" campaign team as their plotline controller before moving across to the Living Spycraft campaign team (as UK Regional Branch Director) in 2003. 2003 also saw the birth of UK Role Players as well as Dave's first freelance writing appointment (co-writing World Militaries and consulting on both US Militaries and Battlegrounds, all for Spycraft). Since then, Dave has concentrated on supporting the UK gaming scene. He has organised and run several small, one-day, events and was the RPG Area Manager for Gen Con UK in 2004. His current favourite systems are Dungeons & Dragons (specifically 5th Edition), Savage Worlds and Cinematic Unisystem. He has a (currently neglected) blog at dave.mcalister.org.uk and runs a D&D 5e SRD website at DnD5e.info.
