      Given that Heina has demonstrated an abject disregard for the 342 backers of this project, and evidently lacks the integrity or common courtesy to provide any sort of update, I decided to contact Pitchstone Publishing directly. This was their response:

      "Hi Jason,
      Unfortunately, due to the author's delays on the project, we've had to push it back and no longer have a release date. We're sorry we can't be more help in regards to your disappointment over the Kickstarter, which was completely the responsibility of the author. We urge you to continue to follow up with Dadhaboy. We'll post info when we get a firm release date set. "

      Note that there is no longer a release date, as per the publisher. It no longer even appears on their website (pitchstonepublishing.com).

      As per the publisher, the delay is due to the "author".

      Heina also appears to have deactivated or deleted her Twitter account (@heinousdealings).

      In the immortal words of The Steve Miller Band: "go on take the money and run"...

      @Matt - in the absence of any updates, I'm assuming Heina bit off more than they could chew with this project, and fell further and further behind to the point where it was easier just to forget about it and move on. I suppose these are the risks you take when you crowdsource a first time author.

      I'd have a lot more respect for Heina if we got an honest "Sorry everyone - I screwed up. There isn't going to be a book. I started out with good intentions but ended up spending all the money on cat food. " final update, but I guess that's unlikely.

      Does anyone know what's going on with this project or why Heina never provides updates? This project was successfully funded 5 and a half years ago...

      December 2019 now on the Pitchstone page and on Amazon. Two more years. Someone's missed the relevance window.

      "Backers who selected a digital copy will receive the book approximately 3 months before its official release date and hard copy recipients will get it about a month or more before it's out."

      So with a publication date of 07 December 2017, I guess we should have expected to receive our digital copies a month ago, and can expect our hard copies in another month or so?

      One year later, still no sign.

      See y'all next year, I guess...

    8. Richard Murray on

      Oh boy. That "hard" date is shockingly soft.

      Amazon now shows "Pitchstone Publishing (Dec 7 2017)"

      Did this ever get published? Did I miss that?

      Heina, do you have any update beyond the expected publication date shown on Amazon of December 2016?

      Amazon is now showing a publishing date of Dec 6, 2016.

      According to http://www.amazon.com/Skeptics-Guide-Islam-Heina-Dadabhoy/dp/1634310284 the expected publication date is July 2016. That would make the three-months-before shipping date about now. But after the complete lack of effort H has put into communicating here in the past, I will continue not to hold my breath.

      Hi Heina,
      Any news? There haven't been any updates for over a year. I'm just curious where the project is at...

    14. Jason Murray on

      Hey Heina - given that we are now well in to December 2015, is there any word on if or when your backers can ever expect to receive your book?

    15. Dave Cross on

      Time for another update, perhaps?

      David MacCallum on

      Hi Heina - that's us into December now, so according your last update the release should now be imminent. Any updates on Pitchstone's release plans? Is the December deadline still realistic?

      Gabe Krabbe on

      Hi Heina - it's now 1 month before Pitchstone's hard date; any news about the ebook versions your update said they'd ship about 3 months ahead?

    18. Richard Murray on

      Heina; In our chat on Facebook Messenger on March 9th, you had mentioned "I will be posting weekly updates"

      So, how's things?

    19. Mark Entel on

      Any updates? Seems that Fall 2014 is on its last legs

    20. Richard Murray on

      How's that manuscript coming along, what with fall marching on...?

      Hi, it has been quite a while since the last update, do you have any news for us?

    25. Marc Baker on

      How comes the manuscript?

    26. Avi Blackmore on

      It's over NINE THOUSAAAAAAAND!

      Immediate question: how much extra do international backers need to add (if anything, and this might depend on tier) for postage of the print book?

      I bet this book will have value far beyond the skeptic/atheist community.
