Peter Gaster has left behind about 2000 pages of notes on unpublished experiments. His "Book of Clustercombs" summarizes more than 17 years of work, including three drafts of scientific manuscripts and novel original theorems in the field of hyperstatic clustermodels applying comb-lattices. ASO has completed the editorial work on the first manuscript; it is currently under review for publication in 2009.
