Thanks for listing my upcoming book on the Newfoundland branch of the Royal Naval Reserve, To Employ and Uplift Them. I too came across the listing on Library and Archives Canada. Not sure why it's already listed, I suspect it might have something to do with it being assigned a call number, ISBN, etc. For more information about my work, please visit www.mhunter.ca. I'll note there when the book is actually out in the real world.

Thanks again,

Mark Hunter
