    Unfortunately, it may be a while before we have more real news on this one. I'm very sorry about the wait -- this book obviously did not go as planned. I'm now doing the same thing at LRB as we're doing at CD these days -- no announcements without the final manuscript in hand.

    That said, I guess I can share the news about the cover artist here. While Doug works on his revisions to the books, I spoke with Les Edwards and he's going to paint an epic piece of cover artwork for the book. It'll be pretty amazing, knowing Les!

    Not familiar with Les Edwards, but am sure it will be great! Luckily for me, I haven't had to wait for a super long time yet for this one since I got it from signing up for the wait list

    Brian,

    We know the wait is not LRB's fault and we know we're in good hands, so the wait is fine!!

    Is this one of those things that has come and gone or is it still available for order?

    It is long sold out, but you can sign up on the waiting list for it. Never know, could get lucky like I did and have a copy open up. The info on this one can be found here: http://www.lonelyroadbooks.com/books...con/about.html

    The waiting list info is under the info about the special features

    Les Edwards has done many great covers and interiors over the years but I haven't seen much recently. Good choice Brian.

    I ordered this one awhile back just guessing it'd be collectible. I think my guess was correct. But I want it in my hands as soon as humanly possible!

    I'll be sending out an official update in the next few months. We have a partial manuscript with the rest expected soon. There might be a change of plans for the cover because Doug suggested another idea that could be pretty cool. So it's a project that's still in flux, but I think there's a good chance it'll go to the printer before the end of the year.

    Just curious if there is an estimated page count for this yet? Happy that the sig. sheets have been sent to Clegg and that it's being copyedited.

    No estimate just yet, but I'll post the page count once the designer does the first past!

    Thanks! Not that it is something really important, but curious about the amount of space this will be taking up.

    I estimate it to be "a lot" of space.

    Considering it is 3 novels I'd say that is about the right amount of space, lol

    Has there been any update on this project?
    I have had this book on order for 4 years and am getting frustrated.
    I keep getting the same answer when I ask "It's out for author review".
    Douglas has another project with CD that is also 3 or 4 years behind "Mr. Darkness".
    Isn't there contractual deadlines for these things? I know that Douglas has published other books in this time frame, so why the big delay with these two titles?
    It's very frustrating to put your hard earned dollars up front for a book and then have to wait years before you see it.

    As for Mr. Darkness, the moment we have a manuscript, we'll rush it into production. Doug has had a lot of trouble with this project, but I think the final story will be worth the wait!

    The link for the wait list is not working. I tried to go there and got page expired message. I will check again tomorrow.

    As for Mr. Darkness I am on the wait list for that one. I red that Douglas Clegg was going through a really bad stretch in his personal life and writing was the last thing on his mind. As history shows us with Rich as a prime example eventually things get better and then the work gets caught up.
