I have spoken-up in support of Banks & Carter before now ... but frankly if this latest report of a delay is correct, it is getting ridiculous.

To (slightly) mis-quote the Duke of Wellington: it is high time to "Publish and be Damned!"

Sorry to bump an old thread but has anybody now when this will be published? It has now disappeared from the publishers website. I had the page saved to keep an eye on the publishing date. It’s now totally disappeared.

No. Only the authors and publisher would have a chance of an idea and they're not commenting. I had heard that Clive Carter's wife was ill and that was (quite justifiably) causing the delay, but I bumped into Steve Banks at Warley and I didn't think he looked well either. It's unfortunate, but if those are the circumstances, well, some things are more important.

Just to update this thread, I have had word from the publishers, that the book remains in compilation, but there is no date for publication at present, hence why it has been removed from the website.
