These are good news and I guess I will order this book - very good information.
BTW:
Here is the link to the kit review - the book will be a good help to understand this model and bash it

Following the discovery of HMS Terror in 2016, a new book will be published this month.

The author Mr Betts built an accurately researched model of HMS Terror, so this book should be a most interesting read for anyone wishing to build a model or just interested in the ship itself.

So it seems, that nobody knows it really correct

On the page of the Naval Institute no information of the release date given

also the publisher is mentioned differently - Seaforth, Pen & Sword, Naval Institute

We can hope, that somehow in winter we can expect the book published .....

It seems that the Mathew Betts book on HMS Terror is delayed. My Amazon order is on hold with a note that I will be notified when it is available. I placed an order directly with the publisher, which was more expensive and was advised that there was no delivery date available due to illness.

For those patiently waiting,

The book is available on Amazon as an ebook if you don’t want to wait for the paper edition.

Hi there
I have bought the book for Kindle about a few weeks ago. Personally I think the Kindle version will be more useful to me at least than the printed version. I am building HMS Terror based on the Occre kit but I am drastically modifying the whole model so that it will be a cutaway version showing all the decks and internal fittings, cabins etc. The only slight downside with the Kindle version is that the drawings are not very high resolution and so if expanded for viewing or printing, are not hugely clear. However, that being said there are some very usefull drawings showing cabins and deck beams layout. It also shows a plans for the actual ship and the model Mathew built plus a some commnets about how the Occre model could be slightly enhanced and how the BBC HMS Terror was constructed. The printed version is perhaps a bit pricey. Also would also strongly suggest that the Kindle version of the book is used on a computer uisng the Kindle app rather than on an actual Kindle reader - the latter being very slow.
