Ordering is now on hold, but not to worry: the print edition will be coming out.
The memorial story keeps expanding, and there have been debates with the publisher about what to do with the scope of the book. With the preliminary "Directors Cut" draft already available for free download, the most important information is already available to the public, so we decided to pull back on the print edition until we can settle on what form it should take. Free version below.
Free downloadable draft of Crescent of Betrayal
With limited permission to transmit until September 1, 2007. [Updated to when the print edition of the book comes out in 2008. So much has happened in July and August 2007 that it has slowed down finalization of the manuscript. Updates on my Error Theory blog.]
On July 28, 2007, the Memorial Project announced final approval for the Crescent/Bowl of Embrace design (now called simply The Flight 93 Memorial), and will now start building. This book is not slated to arrive in bookstores until 2008. Given the urgency of the public's need to know the truth about architect Paul Murdoch’s crescent design, World Ahead Media is allowing me to make a downloadable draft version of the manuscript freely available to the public until the print edition of the book is published. Permission is hereby granted to freely transmit the five downloadable PDFs that make up the draft manuscript, without alteration, until the print edition comes out. After that, Alec Rawls and World Ahead Media respectfully demand that the draft version no longer be transmitted, transferred, or reproduced.
