News from Chris Shores
19 April 2011

"I was with Grub Street yesterday, completing the proofreading, insertion of illustrations, etc, in regard to the Japanese Naval Fighter book. John Davies plans to launch it at the Duxford Air Show on 22 May.

"...[I]n regard to the first volume of my Mediterranean Air War series...I am very nearly finished, but am not prepared to rush under pressure and risk spoiling it. So I think that early next year is more realistic. However, it is coming along really well, and I am hoping it will prove to be the best thing I have done yet. While we are numbering the volumes chronologically, I have mentioned before that I will not necessarily WRITE them in that order. Writing something new is definitely more exciting for the author than rewriting, however extensive the latter, and to keep my own enthusiasm bubbling, I may do Vol 3 or 4 after Vol 1, and then return to 2 and 3 later."

News from Bruce Gamble
14 April 2011

Author Bruce Gamble sent us an update on a couple of projects:

"I recently entered a contract with Zenith Press to produce Marine Fighting Squadron 214, a heavily illustrated history of the Swashbucklers and Black Sheep in World War II. The large format, hardcover book will have an estimated 220 pages with dozens of photographs, fine art by four award-winning aviation artists, plus full color profiles of the squadron's aircraft and Japanese adversaries. Publication is planned for Fall 2012.

"Meanwhile, I'm making progress on Ring of Fire and expect to complete the manuscript during the second half of 2012."
