There is an astounding lack of information as to what is going on behind the scenes. People who want to know if and when their books will be published or if and when they should expect to receive royalties are told: 1. that Alan is slaving away on authors' manuscripts, payroll, editing, etc., 2. that numerous staff who have quit Caliburn are awful, dishonest human beings who were out to screw him, and 3. that he is finally getting all Caliburn's ducks in a row himself, personally (see #1). This has been going on for over a year, same old same old. Even the die-hard cheerleaders among the authors have been silent lately.
