Any new status updates regarding the book?

Why would there be?

Cheers

Why wouldn't there?
loveforstitch - Does he fall in love? I like a little romance in all my movies.

Rekaert - Yes, he demonstrates it with bullets, punches and sentencing.

He's Mega City 1's own Don Juan.

Why wouldn't there?

Because nothing has happened that might warrant an update, obviously. Or are you suggesting that once a fortnight, someone from Rebellion comes here and posts: "We've still sold them all. Morrison's 'cease & desist' order remains a figment of Rich Johnston's imagination. We still plan to publish the book in December"?

Unless, of course, you have some information to the contrary?

Cheers

Nope no information not a jot infact that was the reason for the question. I'm not expecting Rebellion to post ever 2 weeks with an update.
On the same hand if there is any information to be had surely this would be the best place to ask? Just because i haven't heard anything it doesn't mean you or anyone else here hasn't.
I didn't realise i was unreasonable asking the question. and it would seem in asking the question i have rubbed you up the wrong way (If not that's how it come's across)
I apologise.

Good God — there's no need to apologise, particularly not to me. I'm just baffled as to why a lack of updates would lead you to any conclusion other than there being nothing to report…!

Just plain old impatience.and the hope that there is something floating about the internet waiting to be posted again simply down to the impatience.

Possibly Grant's comment in Laura Sneddon's Guardian interview the other week that Rebellion haven't responded to his lawyers' letters might lead some people to speculate that (by - allegedly - not engaging with GM) Rebellion are deliberately waiting for GM to 'put up or shut up' and apply for an injunction (or something)?  :-\

It would take a fairly determined Rich-Johnston-esque reading of Morrison's brief remarks to interpret them as anything other than a past tense reference to something that's done with. I struggle to believe that anyone's advising Grant that the rights to Zenith are unrealised pot of gold, so I suspect —on the basis of absolutely no inside knowledge, I should stress— that he's written it off as a hole into which it's not worth throwing huge sums of cash on an ongoing basis.

As sauchie has observed previously, the resolution to all these copyright/contract disputes is essentially a bag of cash and everything else is quibbling about the size of the bag. There comes a point, I would imagine, where the maximum value of that bag is exceeded by the potential legal spend…

I think Grant's "I don't know what to do at this stage" comment tells you everything you need to know on which way the wind's blowing on the put up or shut up score.

Looks lovely. Glad to be getting it early.

Don't you love the way that bleeding cool are essentially acting like kids in the school yard shouting "fight, fight, fight!"

Bleedingcool would love nothing more than a big public spat - every single Zenith article has had some kind of final line where the site indicates its desperation to see blood. I'm glad such a thing has conspicuously failed to materialise and that everyone actually involved is acting with the kind of dignity Bleedingcool frequently lacks.
