Wiki reckons it ran through 1982. Assuming you can get three years per book (as in IV) and the frequency/page count remained broadly the same, that would suggest two more books would do it.

I have a vague memory that the original plan was to collect the whole of Lawrence's run in four volumes, but that may be completely wrong.

Did anyone else like me pre-order Book IV and have had delay notifications from Amazon?

Recently I've had two from Amazon that the book is currently unavailable.  Does anyone know if book IV is out of stock or is not yet printed?

It's not out yet. It slipped down the website's release schedule a few weeks ago.

Well that's good to know.  It would have annoyed me somewhat if I had pre-ordered and was constantly getting sidelined for website orders.

And yet ANOTHER delay notification from Amazon.  What is going on, I would have expected this with the first book being a new collection, but not this.  Not unless there are issues getting the rights to the non Don Lawrence material, or COVID related delays in the printing.

There are massive paper shortages at the moment. That alone is having a big knock-on effect in publishing. (Not that I have any info about this particular book, but I’m seeing it elsewhere, even with giants like Marvel.)

Yeah… it's wreaking absolute havoc with scheduling for just about all the publishers I'm working for right now, with books getting pushed back, or rushed up the schedule, in response to the printers having an available slot on the press and the paper stock to actually print the damn job on.

Since day one of the pandemic it's been a minor miracle we've had weekly progs, without fail. Plus the usual specials / Ultimate Collection / graphic novels and webstore exclusives. There's been very, very few delays to the latter either, which is to be massively commended!

I got an email yesterday confirming a delay of at least another month citing paper shortages as the reason, as suggested here.
