I am interested in finding out about the current status of the planned book: The Triangle Book by John H. Conway and Steve Sigur. I understand that Steve Sigur died some time back. I got no reply from Prof. Conway; is there someone who knows the fate of this project. Is it abandoned or is it still under preparation? Here is some information about the planned book.

Editing to bump this question in case there is any news.

Look at this link, they say they want to publish the book in 2014:

Neither of those sites actually has any copies available, though. I'm not familiar with flipkart, but I know that amazon sometimes offers books which are not yet released, not yet written, or even wholly invented. – Chris Eagle Jan 10 '11 at 2:50
When I follow the amazon link, one of the first things I see is "Sign up to be notified when this item becomes available." – Matthew Conroy Jan 10 '11 at 3:22

There's no sign of it on the Taylor and Francis website, and there's no review at Math Reviews. – Gerry Myerson Apr 20 '11 at 1:23

Has anyone got any news? This is still available on pre-order.

When I contacted Book Depository at the end of last year, they apologised that its release date kept being pushed out, but all they could say was that it was still available for pre-order... i.e. no new information.

Is there anyone with more inside or recent knowledge?
