Phil wrote me this mail as a respond to a question regarding the 3rd edition:
The new edition of American Megafauna is being published even as we speak as an expansion set. This expansion set is currently at the printers, I drive to the printshop at lunch tomorrow to view the proofs. I am poised to start sending out copies to customers on October 3. This is an expansion set, you will need a copy of the second edition to play. Moments ago I updated the website to allow persons to preorder. The cost will be $15 plus postage.
Expansion Set contents:
• A small booklet, including errata, alternate starting biomes, and my personal commentary on the significance of the game to today’s events,
• A new creature sheet, along with a card and tents for the new fifth player,
• New cards: 31 new DNA cards, 9 new biome cards, 4 new catastrophe cards, and 2 new genotype cards.
I talked last night to Ken Burnside of Ad Astra Games. I hope that there will someday be a deluxe Ad Astra version of the game, better packaged, that includes the maps and cards of the 2nd edition plus the expansion set, plus experimental rules, but Ken indicated that they are still badly backlogged and this remains a long term dream. So for now, the new edition American Megafauna will be available only from me, at the www.SierraMadreGames.com website.
By the way, published at the same time as the Megafauna expansion is my new game Lords of the Spanish Main. (Its on the same press sheet.) This is a game of enterprise and skullduggery set in the 17th century Caribbean. The retail cost of this game is $24, but I will knock four dollars off for those that preorder before October 3.

American Megafauna expansion published
I just want to clarify the title of this news bulletin (though the text is correct). It's not a new edition that is being published, but rather an expansion to the 2nd edition.
I have to ask about this one:
American Megafauna—Deluxe Edition Boxed Game
New Second Edition boxed set, completely redone in color!
I read elsewhere that they put the third edition on hold, so my question is: is this new boxed edition released instead of a third edition? Or an old post that just didn't get removed?
(at a $55 list price it couldn't be the expansion, could it?)
Any news about AMF would be appreciated.
Looks like the 2nd Edition I have. I'd say it's an old post. I have to get the expansion myself when I finally get to it!
Cheers : )
