Also: I have very few left. If I have not contacted you with tracking, please advise of your REAL name and address. Everything for which I have received funds is en route, but I was unable to find means to communicate with a couple of purchasers.

Got my copies out to re-read this evening. If you don't have these already, you may regret not getting them while you still can.

Most of the incoming batch is "spoken for".

Thanks.

They're practical histories. Maybe that means persistent.

The supply I had is gone. Paladin is out. Operations cease at the end of November.

I am having conversations with a new publisher about a much-improved version, and even re-publishing my old Machine Gun book in a new, upgraded version.

Stand by!!

I ain't quite dead yet.

Not quite.

One other detail: The new publisher will probably be inclined to do a full color e-book version, much upgraded. Probably not the print version (costs go WAY up!!), but for an E-book it's much easier.

Well, it looks as if all three books will re-enter the arena, soon, with a real New York publisher. Paladin officially ceases to exist before Monday next, and none of the major suppliers have the M1 volumes.

Ostensibly, the M1 books will be re-combined into a single volume, one which could be entitled "THE PRACTICAL M1 GARAND--an examination of the real historical rifles and their histories in the real world". That just might eliminate all the muddy waters and confusion of my missives with the industrial histories, which is what I set out to do in 1994 or so when these were first circulating to publishers.

A re-edit with new photography of the MACHINE GUN book would probably be called the PRACTICAL, TACTICAL AND PICTORIAL HISTORY OF THE MACHINE GUN, and it'd be along later because that 1989 volume and revisions required a lot of re-doing, which is finally done.

Also: The e-books, from which I never realized a thin dime in royalties, and the overseas editions of both, from which I likewise never saw any income, will be re-done and included in the contract. What little I saw of the M1 versions was so garbled, I couldn't even follow.

Interestingly, some of the caption garbles, I noticed, were FINALLY tweaked in the last printed version of the missives I saw.
