Default Don Aronow Books

I know some of these are available used, but is there an outlet for any new ones? King of Thunderboat Row is available used for a ridiculous price. Contacted the publisher and there are no plans for a new printing yet. It's a shame these books are no longer in print. I grew up reading about Aronow and others, had no idea these were very historic times. Now I'd like to learn more about this industry and can't seem to find the right info. A forum search led to several posts by knowledgeable industry insiders such as "Brownie" and others. What would it take to get these guys to "publish" some memoirs (or additional books) before this history is lost too? This is a fascinating industry/sport and would like to become more "immersed".
I was in Miami at the Marriot docks, cruisers, yachts etc lots of water traffic, but each time the OL, MTI, NT, Donzi etc fired up the crowd paid attention - like a moving legacy. I need to be fed.

I have them all The king of thunder boat row, Blue thunder how the mafia took DA, Speed kills, Muscle boats and Searaces. Yes they are very but very hard to find but worth it all the way. Brownie i think plans to release a book of 188st which will be second to none.
