Friends, Robots, Countrymen:
Greetings! It's been a while since our last transmission but we're in a slow period where work is silently being done in various robotics laboratories across the country with not much new to report.
The text of the book has been at the copy editor for a few weeks and is due back around the middle of June, Chad Meserve is busy mass producing the Robot Jim army one Jim at a time, and Denise Devine is hard at work on the forty illustrations that need to be altered with the hope that we can have the first few from the first chapters of the book ready for the designer to start putting them in once the text has been copy edited.
We are still searching for a Twain scholar or other related luminary to contribute some prefatory material while working on our own opening essay but we may need to have the project in a more finished state before any folks will want to commit.
In the meantime, we should have some exciting finished illustrations to share within the next couple of weeks but please enjoy a few more preliminary drawings we made before settling on Jim's final design.
Gabe and Etta
