It's coming soon. The audio book is recorded, and all that's left is the cover illustration. 

Thank you Mr. Brennecke!  This is great news and I truly appreciate you taking the time to let us know!

I think the Novella is named something like:

 

... But Worth The Wait.

The only thing that needed doing as of February was the cover art? Somehow I don't think this novella is ever coming.

Cover art can actually take quite a while to execute properly, so it depends on when it was first sent to the artist.

 

Of course the novella doesn't exactly seem like a priority, but one would hope that, as a promised Kickstarter benefit, in the end it will in fact surface.  Perhaps in time for a PoE2 announcement...?

Obsidian have done a great work being in contact with the community during PoE development, but regarding to novella release, Obsidian is not behaving seriously.

 

Are you going to release novella some day?

Best guess is that the delay is due to it probably being garbage in its original, submitted state and in need of heavy-handed editing.

As good a video game writer MCA is, he's still a novice prose writer.

It's still not released? I think we should begin to unveil the conspiracy theories now: My money is on a Nepyunian Slaarh beast holding the script to ransom because of innappropriate resemblances to political situations in its own dimension. Either that or Mr Avellone has written something so dangerously seditious and ruthless as to make the Prince seem positively meek, and the publishers are afraid of what shockwaves its release may bring.

Yeah, I was excited about the novellas as well during the Kickstarter. Still have a desire to read them.

Tbh though since I haven't gotten mine from wasteland 2 either, I'm under the impression MCA maybe didn't actually write them yet, I dunno. It seems MCA had beef with obsidian so u could tinfoil hat that the worse, but MCA seems to be on good terms with inexile so why isn't that one out as well that he supposed to have already finished.

Theory of the week.

 

It is a time of rampant apathy in the Universal Heirarchy, Raiders from the Spoon Nebula have penetrated into the very heart of the Heirarchy and discovered some excellent dining establishments, a number of comfortable and affordable hotels and a vast variety of leisure facilities. Armed with this knowledge they delay their urgent mission to deliver the Poe novella manuscript from the editors of Zlaartl VI to a remote planet called Mud, and settle down for some well earned R&R, after two weeks of which they send for their families and make a vacation out of it.

 

Meanwhile on the barren sands of Splectrum the nubile young princess Pomegranite reclines on a beach towel and has her friend Lhuk rub copious amounts of oil into her soft skin, while ocassionally admonishing his clumsy efforts, and wondering why he grips his Photon Falchion so determinedly. Unbeknowst to the attractive couple (but knownst to us,) these are the twin children of Plop Zarniblet, scourge of twelve sectors, leader of the Heirarchical Myrmidons, and a practicioner of the ancient religion known as Methodism!

 

Can the Raiders be roused from their naps before dinnertime? Will Lhuk and Pomegranite commit a mortal sin? Will Lhuk break his Falchion? Will Plop build his ultimate weapon of destruction the Zarniblet casino, restaurant and automated photon phalanx interceptor emporium? Stay tuned for next weeks exciting episode, same time, same place, be there or be an equal sided quadrilateral.

Why doesn't obsidian release the novella right now? It's not serious to see released some stories of Tiranny when C.A. novella is not released yet.
