I e-mailed Howard today and he responded that the book has been delayed because the publisher thinks it's too big. They want him to consolidate his writings into a smaller condensed book. I asked him if he could release what he's written into two or three books on the subject? I told him the genre is large enough it deserves a fair assessment and if it takes parts 1, 2 etc. than so be it. In the meantime he's also got his professional writing to do for other companies to make a living. Like most authors he hates when people like Amazon put up fictitious dates that they have no real basis of fact.

All we can do is hope the publisher becomes flexible and allows him to release his material over several volumes of books.

        I was really hoping for a mega-book, but will be happy with installments. I take it that contracts have been signed and dotted, or is it possible another publisher might be in the mix? I have all of... more

          The book is basically finished but the publisher has asked him to trim it back. This will take time and then will have to be resubmitted for approval.
