Any ideas as to why this book was never reprinted, and why the

we're on the subject: how do you go about resurrecting a book
that's long out of print? Look up the author and persuade him
to print another run?


No idea here as to why it wasn't reprinted. Charlie Z. was at an MPHS meet
a few years ago, so maybe someone out there knows about this. It is a very
good book, and I wish the two sequels would be published. Getting the author
to do another run is the only way I know to get a book "resurrected" as you
say. Along with some cash to make it sweeter for him? It's all based on
economics I suppose.
