I just got the forecast of upcoming American books through to June 2001 and the
Gundam novelizations will not be forthcoming. Despite the popularity of Gundam
Wing and, by extension, All That's Gundam, Ballantine Del Rey apparently still
perceives these books as losers. This may change if this For The Barrel
reinterpretation of the original series actually gets animated.

(Aside: One of the new characters is named Mark C. Cran. Isn't that the name
of the protagonist of G-Saviour, played by Brennan Elliot, also rendered as Mark
Caron?)

By way of solace, there will be three new BattleTech novels from Roc (Penguin
Books) in that time frame: BattleTech #49: Path Of Glory by Randall Bills
(December 2000), BattleTech #50: Flashpoint by Loren L. Coleman (April 2001) and
BattleTech #51: Test Of Vengeance by Bryan Nystul (June 2001).
