Well, I just ordered your book from Amazon, so your google search may not have brought you any news, but it brought you a sale.  :)  I'll be curious to see how this one stacks up against "The Further Adventures of Huckleberry Finn" which I enjoyed quite a bit.  

Some years ago I compiled a list on Amazon for those who might wish to read further Huck and/or Tom stories.  I'll get this one added to the list!  Anyone read some of these such as "More Adventures of Huck Finn" or "Tom Sawyer Grows Up" by Clement Wood from the 1930s?

Subject: Huck on Google
There's a service on Google called Google Alerts.  It gives you what appear=
s on the Internet -- news, blogs, and web -- about the subject you choose. =
I signed up for it to get alerts about Huckleberry Finn, hoping I'd see an=
y comments about my Huckleberry Finn Grows Up.  I haven't seen any yet.

But what I have seen is that almost every day some student is writing in sa=
ying he's been given a class assignment about Adventures of Huckleberry Fin=
n and wants somebody to do his homework for him; and/or some person or comp=
any is offering to provide an essay about Twain's classic.

I think if I were teaching Huckleberry Finn, I'd want to subscribe to this =
Google service to see what my students were doing; in fact, if I were teach=
ing any book or books at all, I'd want to get Google Alerts on that book or=
those books.  Keeping students honest is a tough job, and this would help.
