(About the latter I have to say that I don't actually know whether it really is still "forthcoming", whether it has meanwhile appeared or whether it ever will. I wrote and submitted the manuscript not so long after a conference paper I gave in 2001. The editing of the proceedings of this conference then dragged on and on year after year – so much so that I was even given the opportunity to update the text a little a few years back. But since then I've not heard anything further about the fate of the book, and haven't been able to find any information about the title online … Meanwhile I have also learned that, sadly, the edtor of the volume, Dieter Kastovsky, passed away in 2012. I fear the book project may have gone with him. But if that is so then that's still nothing compared to the loss of Dieter himself. His was really an untimely demise in so many ways, what with all the plans he still had ... it was quite a shock to learn of this. UPDATE: I've meanwhile had confirmation from the publisher that the book project has indeed been cancelled, so this article will either never appear or it will have to be in a different form somewhere else, provided I find the time and inclination to update it.)
