There has been an earlier thread with some more detail about his situation so it may be worth trying to find that particular thread, but I seem to recall the answer was that it wouldn't happen.

His health and other factors from what I have read. Make it highly unlikely if we will see much if any thing from him. All I can say is to enjoy what he has made available to us. I know I will continue to do that.

I just started my first story by this author, and find his writing quite engrossing.

I'm reading "Why Me Lord?" BTW

Be careful. He is one of those storytellers that tend to trap a reader into wanting more. Sometimes that is good however.

The sad side is so many good stories that are unfinished and will likely never be finished. He's in a care facility in Texas and declining fast while he waits for the grim reaper to come calling. When he was still able to write, a few years back, he said he wanted to finish the stories, but last I heard he wasn't up to do so and no longer cared about writing because it was too hard for him to do.

That was part of my reason for saying he needs to be careful. Some storytellers whether they complete all their stories or not, tend to really fire up the imagination of the readers. I think their talent falls under the combined categories as I call it "a gift and a curse". For him and others like him, it might be a curse. For the readers its a gift. So its a matter of viewpoint I guess.
