Thank you, Arnie. Lovely to see your voice again. 

I am gratified to hear you enjoyed the excerpts in ROOTS. In the Omnibus the 
unabridged paper runs to fifty pages, half of which is notes. As usual, the 
spicy and controversial bits are hidden in the notes. 

My work on Harrison must really be seen as the first word on the subject, not 
the last. I think there is more research to be done with regard to his 
personal life, but I was, and am, in Richmond, Virginia, and starting entirely from 
scratch. Nor did I have a grant to defray any expenses, which sort of thing is 
beginning to impact a lot of independent research. 

The main thing I would like to say here is this: 

Harrison was family, and he had an incredible life. No one ever loved his 
fellow man more. He is worthy of our attention; moreover, he is interesting and 
enjoyable to read, so we decided to bundle up a collection of his works so 
people could get at them. However, the Omnibus is a Print On Demand book. Because 
it is highly labor intensive to produce, and there are other projects we want 
to work on, we don't intend it to be available forever.
