Sarna News: Bad 'Mechs - Icestorm

Category talk:Japanese Editions

Leads on other books by the same publisher as for Black Widow Company[edit]

See File talk:Black Widow Company Japanese.jpg for how I got to this point. On a hunch, I dropped the name of the publisher in there along with "BattleTech" and got six hits on "Batorutekku". Three appear to be duplicates, however. (See after this list.)

(Updated with the full list of six now that I have better context.--Talvin (talk) 08:54, 8 July 2022 (EDT) )

If I search that for "Batorutekku", I also get:

And one on Ebay[edit]

Not sure if this is one of the above or no:

Gonna grab a screenshot and a save of the image if I can for future reference.--Talvin (talk) 13:50, 7 July 2022 (EDT)

By comparing ISBN's, one can determine that the OCLC Gray Death Legion entries Talvin found correspond to the second, third, and sixth entries of the above. --Dude RB (talk) 22:23, 7 July 2022 (EDT)

(Also these six are attributed to William H. Keith on the Amazon site.)

Some links regarding the other two OCLC entries above.

ISBN 9784829142677: [1]

which seems to be a BattleTech game guide.

ISBN 9784829127681: [2]

which is puzzling, further research needed. --Dude RB (talk) 22:34, 7 July 2022 (EDT)

OK, I am going to go back and add the other three that I found and assumed to be duplicates, because it is looking more and more like they broke the trilogy up into six books. --Talvin (talk) 08:17, 8 July 2022 (EDT)
