: I don't think bantam lost the rights to the book, at least I hope they didn't. I do know that Max McCoy felt he couldn't continue writing the books because because he was afraid of running out of ideas and deadlines. In the article I read it sounded like he felt bad that he was only putting them out only 1 a year and felt pressed at doing that. But I think Bantam will look for a new writer. If they did lose the rights, I'm sure someone will pick it up. they won't let that go for too long a period of time.
Bantam didn't exactly "lose the rights." It was more pf "giving up the rights." And yes, I think that that was a stooopid mistake on their part due to the upcoming Indy IV. Yet I agree, someone will most likely pick up were Bantam left off, at least for the Indy IV movie adaptation.
But yes, Bantam has definetly thrown in the Indy towel.
I personally would like to see all past three Indy movies' adaptations in one paperback book, as was done by Del Rey with the original Star Wars Trilogy.
