Nick Stevens sent out a series of tweets the other day and announced that he and the author are no longer collaborating. They were not getting along on their views of what the book should be about. I think that means this project is now dead. He said that the author was free to use his illustrations. But it really sounds like it won't be possible for this to happen.

That is sad. I did note the TOC posted a few posts back was rather expansive.

One of the main dangers for a writer, wanting to stuff in too much material discovered during research.

Stevens wanted the book to focus on the N1. The author wants it to be much broader, at least according to Stevens.

N1- For the Moon and Mars 2nd Edition Coming very soon!

     The new expanded 2nd Edition of N1-For the Moon and Mars Reference Book is in the absolute final stages of editing and will be available on AMAZON next month. All things being relative, the paperback version will sell for @ $59 and the hard cover for @ $98. The original book was 200 pages long. The new expanded version is 630 pages. The expansion is the result of 26 months of research with the RKK Energia Encyclopedia and Cosmonautica Vol 1.   The book covers the Soviet/Russian space effort from 1945 to 2040, with the N1 firmly at the center.  All of the original material is in this  edition.  Once the N1 was buried by Glushko in 1974, its design plans for the future continued. Suddenly plans for Mars, Venus and Jupiter that were to have one N1 heavy booster launch were now only possible with two or three extant boosters.  That possible future is explored in detail. Frankly, with the war in Ukraine, access to this material is now lost for decades to come. This edition represents a treasure trove of information that encapsulates the Cold War of the past and the lost future that was planed in detail, with  the N1 as its beating heart. -Matt Johnson Dayton June 2, 2022.
