Mrostov, what's the deal with Locusts on the Horizon?

So you've finally worn me down. I'm now about to give in to get a Kindle so I can read Locusts on the Horizon and now Amazon has suspended sales due to a file problem. Any word on when the issue will be resolved or are they just using that as an excuse to yank the title from sales?

Many of the links got out-dated. Those were fixed some time ago but the book itself is completing a re-write. It should be done soon. The main thing we are waiting on is our commo guru to complete a complete overhaul of the commo chapter. He's a 10 year US Army commo veteran, a supremely skilled HAM operator, and has been working professionally in the commercial commo field for many, many years.

When multiple people collaborate on book that is over 300,000 words long, it's often like herding cats.

In addition to the Kindle version, the new version will have a paper print edition available. It will probably be roughly the size of a college chemistry textbook.

Working on the update to get it out. A multi-person project is a lot like herding cats.

I would like a copy of the book. I Won't be able to finish it in two week window that kindle allows for shares. Any work-arounds?
