Over on the Frog God Games website, Bill Webb has announced that this year will see the release of Tome of Horrors Complete, a single hardcover volume containing all the monsters from Tome of Horrors v.1-3, originally released for d20 by Necromancer Games, and it will have editions for both Swords & Wizardry and Pathfinder. Here's the full announcement:

Frog God games is pleased to announce Tome of Horrors Complete

This book will be released in 2 formats; Swords and Wizardry and Pathfinder. It will consist of a huge volume encompassing all three Necromancer Games Tome of Horror volumes. Release date is Summer 2011, and retail price is TBD. This will be hardcover release. This massive Tome will contain almost 1000 monsters retstatted and reworked for both game systems, all in one place.

This is the largest, most comprehensive monster book ever released. Each monster is individually illustrated.

Let the discussion begin!
Happy New Year (almost) !

I'm a big fan of the 3 original volumes, and always found them to be the most useful of the many monster volumes that were released for d20. This looks like it'll be a great addition to any Pathfinder or Swords & Wizardry collection, but I'm curious what the cost will be. 1000 monsters with an illustration for each one is going to end up being a huge book. There is a bit of discussion going on at the Necromancer Games forums, with a little more information on the book.
