Robert Kurz's Substance of Capital - published yet?

There've been various ads floating around for Chronos' publication of a translation of Kurz's 'Substance of Capital', supposedly to be released in June. Anyone know if it has in fact been published yet, and if so, how one might obtain a copy? The internet offers conflicting information on the matter: a few Greek sites claiming imminent publication as of mid-June, and a French site claiming that the English translation has already been published?!

Can I just reiterate this question, now that we're in mid-winter.

Sorry for the delay. A first draft is being reviewed and Chronos should have the book out by the end of the summer.

On a related note, a collection of texts by Kurz, Roswitha Scholz and other Wertkritiker is out now:
Marxism and the critique of value

So there is a printed paperback book Part One of Robert Kurz 'The Substance of Capital' in English available from Chronos Publications that I have read and commented on very briefly in the discussion thread titled Luxemburg's 'Accumulation of Capital', (here: https://libcom.org/forums/theory/luxemburgs-accumulation-capital-2709201...) although given the volume of shorter texts available on line here you can get an understanding of Kurz arguments pretty well without that.
I have commented elsewhere on some of those texts titled 'The apotheosis of money....' and also 'Anti-economics and anti-politics....' but not much response from others (one PM discussion aside).

There was previously a short, not overly helpful, review published here:
