I can't wait for this book. Dario Argento always impresses with very interesting concepts, but in my opinion, never delivers. His last movie, The Mother of Tears, is ripe with amazing concepts, yet it ended up being rather amaturish and hackend.
This book on the other hand seems to be on the right path!
I hope you guys publish it soon!

Official release date is now April 1, which is the date our distributor liked. We're deep in production already, so I think that date is solid.

Hey Doc, can I ask you, how well do you think these scenarios would translate to a medieval BRP setting, a sort of mythic Europe?

While not impossible, it would take some real work on the Keeper's part. It's a very contemporary setting. The first scenario, for example, takes place in and around a five-story apartment building called "The Three Sisters."

"Our Ladies" looks great. Is there a distributor for MRP products in the U.K?

IGUK.com will likely be carrying the book; they already carry Dead But Dreaming and New Tales of the Miskatonic Valley. We still haven't been able to raise any interest from Esdevium distributors.

Or a surviving Roman-style insula tenement block.

Yes. All quite possible. Although the adventures are designed for contemporary America, the story's theme(s) are actually timeless and could be adapted to almost any era.

having just received my copy of NToMV, I rushed to order OLoS. I am taking my own swwet time reading the first collection of scenarioes, and enjoying the quality of the writing and the inventiveness of the scenarioes. I'll post a review soon. How good to see Doc and the others back in such style!

That might work very well for me, as my campaign takes place in Italy, among other places. And if it doesn't work out, I can always use it for our classic era CoC.

If memory serves, Kevin even states in the manuscript that the setting for the first scenario of the campaign is any moderate sized-university town in the US. I don't think there is anything overly-US about it, though, so it could be ported over with just a few adjustments.
