Does Stephen Clemmons still post on here? I remember reading a while back that he was planning on writing a book about Apollo 1, and I was wondering if that was still happening, especially since there seems to be no single tome covering the accident.

Stephen is still working on the book; as of May, he was wrapping up some final research before pressing ahead with finding a publisher.

Like the original poster, I've been wondering about Mr. Clemmons' memoirs, and was looking forward to reading them. I'm sure there's many others on cS with similar sentiments.

I also hope and pray for his quick recovery.

Steve's book was well on the way but Steve became ill in May. He had another setback the last couple weeks with additional serious health issues.

I too remember reading some very insightful and interesting posts by Mr. Clemmons. I will certainly purchase his book when completed.

Best wishes for a speedy recovery.

I have reviewed the first half of his book and it was great. Up untill he became ill he was in the process of tweaking the second half. His book will be very unique in that he was there, a first hand account, and it is a "tell all" account of what really transpired. It needs to be published and his side of the story told.

I, too, wish Stephen a most speedy recovery.

I sent him an e-mail tonight offering him any help that he might need in getting his memoirs published. I have contacts in the literary world, and if I can help him to secure an agent (if he has not already), I would really love to, as I am very eager to see this book published.

I just talked to Steve and he is in rehab and doing great. He is VERY determined to finish the book upon recovery.
