Delta Green fans already know – Arc Dream Publishing and Pagan Publishing are doing the fundraising round for the next Delta Green sourcebook, Delta Green: Targets of Opportunity. Written by such notables as Dennis Detwiller, Greg Stolze, Kenneth Hite, and Shane Ivey, the book will touch on a number of unknowable evils, lurking in regions from Alaska to New Orleans. This sourcebook follows on the heels of Delta Green: Eyes Only, which is a finalist for this year’s Origins Awards. For as little as a $50 pledge, fans can help make Targets of Opportunity a reality – the Fundable.com pledge drive is rapidly closing in on its $20k goal.
Target acquired: $20,000 (US). Good for everyone, well except maybe retailers.
Maybe this is a variant of the whole retarded gamer-sticker-shock reaction, but: given Lulu.com and such, $20K seems absurdly high.
My understanding was this would pay for more than just the preorders – it would also pay for a fair number of additional books that will be a “normal” version, possibly making its way through the retail channels.

So true. Had I the option of contributing as a retailer with bulk pre-orders, I would be happy to. Then again, with 400 copies worldwide, I dunno if I really care.
