Kinda funny there's a small movement to get this book out after all these long years. Eh, whatever... Can't hurt...

I really dislike these pointless petitions, but, I'll sign it.

A petition can be successful, but you need a plan to go along with it.

Who is the petition being presented to? Is there a target number of signatures or a deadline at which the petition is being presented? If Toho gives their blessing, does Random House own the story or does the author? Has Marc Cerasini been contacted? Could this be released for free as fan fiction? Could the rights be purchased from Random House and Toho for a limited printing (enter the Kickstarter discussion) etc...

This is a start, but without a specific direction, it is highly unlikely to accomplish anything or gain much momentum

Yup. These are steps that need to be taken.

Wow, that's surprising. Perhaps this is more a bigger idea than we thought?

I had all of those books. I'd get the fifth one for sure if they released it, but really the first one was by far the most entertaining for me.

With the 2014 Godzilla movie coming up, Godzilla And the Lost Continent should get printed. It might be good publicity for the 2014 movie. :mrgreen:

In theory yes, but...... I don't think it will.

Still, best of luck. :D
