Loren Coleman has an article on his Cryptozoo News with quotes from several of the major players, including Peter Brown.
It's a spicy back-and-forth on the latest exchange of technical comments.
UPDATE (5/26/2006): A second post has a book announcement:
[Mike Morwood] wrote saying he has completed a book with Penny van Oosterzee entitled The Hobbit's Tale: Discovery, Significance and History of a New Human Species on the Island of Flores, Indonesia. He tells me it will "hopefully" be "out by the end of the year."
I guess There and Back Again was taken.
