Just picked up your "Complete Book of Scriptwriting" (wanna-be writer that I
am) and was pleasantly surprised to find a book full of all of the
information I was looking for; most of the other people piece together a few
things here and there, but are missing that one bit... Also liked the
"Coming of Shadows" script in the back, my favorite lines from the series
were in that ep. ("'How will this end?' 'In fire.'") Have your written any
other technical writing books, and is any of your fiction still in print? I
couldn't find anything else at Hastings.

Which leads me to the most obvious follow-up question:

  Are there any plans to put any of them back in print?

  (I was lucky enough to get your Twilight Zone book when it first came out
and haven't been able to find any of the rest.)

"Are there any plans to put any of [my books] back in print?", not really.  

I'd rather see my next novel come out first, since it's going to be a
better book than those preceding it.  (Yes, I'm writing it now in my
copious free time.)
