Yes, I know I’ve posted some other junk, and I still have yet to post my Montecristo No. 4 review, along with a few other recents. I’ve really only had time to post a few items I had been working on for a bit, as I’m tied up relatively with some work training, and also have just had a bit of a bloody injury with it. Definitely hope to get my time more cleared out shortly enough, and the blog reviews really rolling along shortly…
In the meantime, I’ve got some unfortunate news to pass along from the Doctor. For those of us into cigars, polarized one way or not, we all know of Min Ron Nee’s (MRN) “An Illustrated Encyclopaedia of Post-Revolution Havana Cigars“. Well, for the better part of a year and a half or so, we’ve been aware of the 2nd Edition of this book coming. The original was published just over a decade ago, and the new tome, as shown with some various online previews that are out there, is definitely a massive effort.
Well, for whatever reason, I’ve been passed along some news to share about a delay…
“The Frankfurt Book Fair presentation of the second edition MRN book has been cancelled.
The book release will be delayed for a year or two due to the complexity of the project.
There will be a slightly different presentation in the final release of the book.”
I for one am definitely disappointed to hear of such a lengthy delay. However, I myself was really only going to be “living vicariously” through others with this 2nd Edition, as it’s not on my buy-list due to a myriad of factors. And, I’m partially not surprised about a bit of a delay, being that the nature of the book just seems like such a passionate and massive undertaking, from what we’ve had relayed to us about the book and the author.
But, there’s a little tidbit of news for you, from my fledging pulpit here.
