Actually what happened was this............
Random House owns the rights to all of the books. Before the last book was completed the license for them to use Godzilla and other Toho characters expired. Since there was only one book to be released, Random House didnt feel it was finiancially prudent to renew the license just to publish one book. It is very costly to purchase the license to use a character like Godzilla. Now since Random House owns the rights to all of the books, Mark Cerasini cannot release the last book, even as a fan fiction. if he did, he could be in for alot of legal problems both from Random House & Toho. So no, until Random House decides to get the rights to Godzilla again, that book will never see the light of day.
