I have spoken to Mack recently.  About 5 months back.  Interesting conversation.  i have his current phone number, and to my knowledge, he welcomes calls from SERIOUS blues scholars and researchers.

any news about his books being published?

A few years ago he was the subject of a long feature in, I think, The Texas Monitor.

Texas Monthly, April, 2002.

Thanks Don O.

TM first ran a feature (A Case Of The Blues) about MM in their May 1977 issue. Well worth tracking down if you've not already done so.
