Is the completion of the Holmes Devise in sight?

The history of the Supreme Court is one of those areas that has always fascinated me. I've read several books about the subject, but none have loomed as large as the volumes of the Oliver Wendell Holmes Devise. While it's frustratingly uneven, at their best the volumes set the standard for great legal scholarship, and I'm happy to see that they may finally be finishing this long, drawn-out series. Now I just need to find the time to read them!
