Piers, Wonderful news and I hope it goes well. I am travelling for three months - starting in August - Would be just wonderful to fill my ebook reader with MLW books :-)

Hello there, please may I refer you the below email I just received from my Father's friend and publisher. With this in mind I am pleased to say the progress though slow, is now a train on rails, and I am hoping to be able to update you more as we put this plan into practice. Thank you all for your kind patience.
I wanted to drop you a line to let you know that, after a meeting last week, I think we’re in a position to push ahead with plans to re-publish some of your father’s books and then, beyond that, look at publishing the as-yet unpublished manuscripts.
I’ve ordered up copies of Let Not the Deep, Kings Shilling, Long Reach and Heraklion Blue, which I think are the four we should start with and I’ll be sending them for scanning – a process which can take a few months, but which I’ll instigate right away.
I’m happy to say that, through Amazon, we should be able to make the books available as print-on-demand paperbacks for those who’d prefer physical copies.
And I’d like very much indeed to draw up a contract along the lines we discussed last year and get that to you if you’re still keen"

Piers, Very excited and pleased to hear that you are hot on the trail of publishing some of MLW manuscripts. ebook format could be very good - Over the past couple of years since I have retired I have travelled quite a bit and found the convenience of using an ebook reader for novels. I still much prefer the printed format to technical, history or illustrated works and the seems to be the same for many people I talk to. Good luck - I have my credit card ready :-)

I have recently been in conversation with the director of a large publishers, with a view to bringing Mike's 'back catalogue' back to life on E-books and also- publishing "somewhere out there" and " Broken Square" I met him in London last week, and it could be a matter of months before his books are republished and you can for the first time- buy his new books. Rhodesia- is a more complex beast as it requires a collaborative effort to finish, and would need a Zimbabwean military author ideally. We're on the hunt. Very exciting, I will keep you updated. All the best, Piers

Hi guys, I love the books written by Mike LUNNON-WOOD, and I am sorry to hear of his passing. I am trying to complete my collection of his books. As I have moved with the times, I now have an iPad, any suggestions as to where I can get his books as ebooks?

I am late posting here but such is the nature of Internet forums that the get "discovered" constantly. MLW books are superb. If ever the was a tribute to the Scottish (or was it British) Coast Guard then "Let not the deep" is it. For years I have scoured bookshops for his books and it is only this week that I realised that he passed away in 2008 - Not only a tragic loss to readers but a loss to the planet. If his family has unpublished works that would be wonderfull if they were able to be put into print.
