Martin and I have chatted a bit - Martin certainly qualifies as much as
a "fan" as I am - he actually listed me in the acknowledgements in his
Heavy Metal Collectors Guide.  It was I who pushed Martin to work with
Bolle where possible on this project.  I haven't heard from Martin in
awhile, but at the time we talked he indicated that he would credit the
FAQ if any of the material shows up in it.  I don't expect his book is
going to replace the FAQ or other things like the official BOC site, but
I expect it will be a most interesting book for most BOC fans.
