I think this thread is a good idea. This way we have one place to find out when stuff is starting to appear without a hundred threads cluttering up the board.
Yes, it does make sense. When I first saw the thread, I didn't first twig it was for PoM, I thought it may have been for another Trek publication.
I've personally picked up both the Trek Vault and TNG 365 recently and am awaiting the postie with my copy of PoM.
