Not sure of the finer details here, but I just found this;I was aware of the appalling treatment @Auld_Sapper received by the publisher who I think no longer posts on ARRSE... however myself and others innocently purchased Kindle and hard back copies before the awful series of events was revealed ... I bought the Kindle version so I may keep my numbered hard copy book with a dedication kindly written by @Auld_Sapper in pristine condition .
Pleased to read you are assisting with any future publication ... it is a tail , see what I did there , worth telling .and the original author should rightly be rewarded .
"We also would like to hear from the authors, their successors or their assignees, of any other book considered to be in copyright, and which we publish, with a view to remunerating those persons with their due royalties."

EDIT - Also this - having just read most of the thread and now more familiar with the goings on, someone else did mention that the publisher had died. Looks like the website may have had one or two updates since, so might be worth making contact again. You never know, his wife might be a bit more of the honest variety.
