Salam Pax appears and disappears

Salam Pax´s Baghdad blog was mandatory reading during the Iraq war and its aftermath. It ended four years ago with these words:

I think Hiatus is the word. Thank you very much ladies and gentlemen.

Then he reappeared a month ago, with a pretty great blog post about amusement parks in Baghdad. And then that site went bust.

I´m waiting with bated breath for any new posts from Salam.

If you live in Norway, buy the original The Baghdad Blog-book and not the hastily-put-together-let´s-milk-this-thing-dry-norwegian version with the outstandingly clunky title "Faens Bomber" ("damn bombs").
