Tor Books published Steve Coonts' anthology "Combat" and has Barrett's novella "Skyhawks Forever" with contributions from Steve and 8 other authors.  Coonts.com 

Pushing the Envelope was originally released in 1994 but the publisher allowed it to lapse shortly before Marion Carl was killed four years later.  With co-operation of Barrett Tillman and the Carl family, the book was reissued in softcover in 2005 to meet increased reader demand.  The first chapter of the original edition has been replaced by a retrospective that Barrett wrote following his friend's funeral.
