I have just put the finishing touches on my part of an upcoming Avengers project I have been involved in for the past few weeks. It's one reason I've been so scarce lately-- the deadline is Monday, and I just finished (at 2 am Saturday).
I will say more about it soon, once it's all official and everything.
And after that, there's yet another upcoming cool Avengers project I'm involved in that many of you here might enjoy. With project #1 done now, I can turn more of my attention to wrapping up project #2...
Oh, the tease I am being tonight. Blame sleep deprivation from working on a deadline! More info soon...
They're out now! I haven't seen them yet, but look forward to checking them out.
The second project I mentioned before was a new book, put together by some of the old-time Jarvis-Heads, called ASSEMBLED! It will contain opinionated essays covering the major eras of Avengers history, along with a few other history/humor features, etc. The book is nearly complete, and should be available in the spring. All profits will go to George Perez's chosen charity. More details soon.
The third project that has kept me away from message boards and the AA! site in the last couple of months is Volume 2 of the SENTINELS series: A DISTANT STAR. The manuscript is finished, editing has been completed, and "advance review copies" have been sent out. It will be available probably in mid-January at the latest.
Here is the cover. More details available soon for this, too.

Once again, congratulations, Van!
Your book project sounds interesting. I was wondering if you are yet in a position to answer the following question: What would be the book’s availability? Could we expect to find it at regular brick-and-mortar and online bookstores (e.g., Barnes & Noble, Borders, Amazon)? comic shops? just the publisher’s Web site?

The ASSEMBLED! book will be available at least via Amazon, in addition to the publisher's site. Beyond that, I'm not sure yet. I'll definitely post the info here when the book is done and available.
A few quick, behind-the-scenes details:
I've edited about half of it, to this point. Keith RA DeCandido wrote the introduction and Sean McQuaid is writing the chapter on the Kurt Busiek Era, which I'm particularly looking forward to. Mark Bousquet's chapter on the ULTIMATES and Scott Harris's take on the Roy Thomas Era also bring a lot to the table, though I think all the chapters are very good, so far. The prolific Ian Watson has contributed several pieces, but I haven't gotten a look at them just yet. More to come!
