    Stan,

    You are right, we have plenty of stock.

    An interesting aspect is that Skyhorse listed the book for $12.  They sell it to Amazon at 60% off, or $4.80. Then they pay royalties of $2.52 per copy to the Brits. That leaves a profit of $2.28 and they haven't yet paid to print it!  On that score alone, I don't think we will see a 2013 edition.

    Separately, I was talking to the Chief of the US Naval Observatory a month ago, and casually asked him what he thought of Skyhorse using their name on a book.  He said they didn't like it and are taking steps to prevent it happening again.

    I would be surprised to see a 2013 edition from them.

    Ken

    Correct on the edition.  And, as I recall, Celestaire is affiliated with the publisher, Paradise Cay Publications, Inc., so I'm pretty sure there is stock.  (Ken, correct me if I am wrong.)

    This would be the usual Commercial Edition, , right?soft covered, with a few pages of ads front and rear I take it?
    Best price I can recall seeing, especially if the seller actually has the things.
