Book delay

As the release date drew closer I was afraid something like this was going to happen. I've had it in my Amazon pre-purchase cart for what seems like forever. Guess I'll have to tell Amazon again that I still want it whenever it finally gets released. At least it'll be at a good pre-order price. And as we somehow manage to keep getting a year older (those of us born around 1950), we know all too well how fast time passes in a contracting life span, and June will be upon us in no time at all.

On a different note I see that cheap-o ALPHA DVD at has been putting out Spaghetti Western double features on their budget ($5.99) label. These include HIS NAME WAS KING/MOMENT TO KILL, FOUR OF THE APOCALYPSE/THE PROUD AND THE DAMNED(not a SW), SARTANA, PRAY FOR YOUR DEATH/SARTANA TRADE YOUR GUNS FOR A COFFIN. There's also a War double feature, HELL IN NORMANDY/FIVE FOR HELL.
ALPHA isn't a restoration company and tends to put out whatever they come up with. But could they have come up with nice widescreen prints? I doubt it but thought I'd pass along the info in case anyone wanted to take the chance or be on the lookout for other upcoming releases.

        Howard told me six months ago this would most likely happen as the publisher he originally used was bought by another publisher and they would reset priorities on what books they wanted to get out.
