    My thanks, also, to Brian. We'll see how it goes. I've got my fingers crossed.

    Interesting read. It's too bad that the company went under. Hopefully everything gets resolved.

    Like Jerome said, interesting and sad. Thanks again, Brian, and thank you to Jeff Conner for sharing his perspective. Still hoping things work out to Bob's satisfaction.

    Wow- this is really fascinating after all these years. I've always loved what Jeff did with his books, and it sounds like Scream folded just about how I figured it did. It happens. Doesn't make it right, but.. I remember that original "INTERVIEW" solicitation (and I, too, still have my Scream Press File!), and although it sounded like it was going to be another "Skeleton Crew", i.e. one of the nicest books around at the time- I never got around to preordering. Meant to, just didn't.

    I think Brian deserves a huge pat on the back for following up on this in the middle of all his "real" jobs. And Jeff for not hiding anything. I really hope Bob (and anyone else) do get a refund. That would be truly great, after all these years, to have it resolved like this.

    I just read Jeff's explaination.... and I have to say... this line made me laugh...

    "and my wife wanted to have a kid, with or without me. And thus a debacle was born."

    so who's the daddy???

    a: a great disaster

    b: a complete failure : fiasco

    poor kid, I can hear it now--- "Hey Screwup, get your ass in here and do the dishes."

    I just wanted to inform the members here that today I received checks from Jeff Conner to reimburse me and my friend for the books we ordered 24 years ago and never received. This resolution would never have happened had not Brian Freeman intervened on our behalf. I have thanked him via PM but wanted to also make everyone else aware of Brian's efforts. His help is greatly appreciated!

    Thanks to Brian Freeman, to Jeff Conner...and perhaps a small thanks to TheDarkTower.org for providing the platform for this issue to be cleared up.
    In due time I hope Mr. Conner feels comfortable enough to come here and talk about the successes and struggles that he and other long gone but not forgotten publishers faced (not specific debtors etc). It is fascinating history, and hopefully the information is appreciated.

    Very happy to hear your received a refund, Bob.

    I third Jerome's comments as well.

    Nice ending for you Bob.
    Hopefully, it will be the same for everyone that ordered the book and never got it.

    Nice move from Brian & Jeff as well.

    Same here! The whole idea of "the distinctive misspellings" is actually pretty cool, isn't it?
