The book will not be published under this title or ISBN. The author has written a modified version with a new title and cover that will be published in fall of 2016. I work for the publisher. :-)

Rick (rockandice) | 7 comments We're trying to correct those kinds of listings. The data for Quests for Kids was sent out ahead of time, as is usual, but then Martin suffered a blood clot in his brain in early 2015, which lead to first delaying the book and then rewrites to incorporate the subsequent events. The new book is titles Running to the Edge and can be found here:

If you look at the author's full list of titles, you'll also see that he has only two books in print with RMB:

A news article on his recovery:

And if you like I am in direct contact with the author and can have him verify that Quests for Kids was never published and will never be published, but instead, Martin's book Running to the Edge will come out in November of 2016.

Rick (rockandice) | 7 comments Is there anything else I can provide to prove that Quests for Kids is no longer being published? The author has asked me to remove it, and if it's not possible, then I'd like to let him know and maybe have him chime in on this.
