Hidden in the puzzle above are the titles of several GURPS worldbooks & sourcebooks, old and new (or, nowadays, old and less-old). How many? That would be telling! Titles with numbers and punctuation (dashes, apostrophes and so on) are modified to fit the all-letter format, with punctuation dropped, roman numerals retained, and arabic numerals translated into words. The word "GURPS" and any edition notation are gone. Some example titles that may or may not be in the puzzle:

GURPS Bunnies & Burrows becomes BUNNIESANDBURROWS
GURPS Ultra-Tech 2
becomes ULTRATECHTWO
GURPS Compendium I
becomes COMPENDIUMI
GURPS Space, 3rd Edition
becomes SPACE
GURPS Vampire: The Masquerade
becomes VAMPIRETHEMASQUERADE

Words can be hidden diagonally, backwards, within other words, and so on. For an example of the latter, look up in the northwest corner: GURPS Space Adventures is clearly visible. But that's not one title; that's two. Circle GURPS Space separately! How many can you find?

While you're at it, check out my GURPS Library: Rated page to see my picks of which of these titles are the best to own; my main GURPS page for more GURPS articles than you can shake a stick at, and the Official GURPS Site for more detailed info, piles of goodies, links, online ordering, and the whole nine hexes.
