Will Lee Changho ever get the same treatment as Invincible, John Fairbairn' Go Seigen Series and Shuei, or Lee Sedol commented books?

What is the reason he is being ignored? Poor guy

Shusaku had to wait 150 years for Invincible to be published, Go Seigen 50/70 years and Shuei more than a century. Lee Chang-ho commented games in English should be out around 2040 at best :)

If you read French, there is a two-volume set of his games commented by Lee Chang-Ho, Invasion et réduction. Each volume is 300 pages long, with around 50 commented games. Of course the focus is mainly on, well, invading and reducing, but the beginning of the game generally gets some comments as well.

There is oodles of material on this player in Korean, Japanese and Chinese. But translating those books might not make commercial sense, given the size of the western Go book market.

Hi,
obviously you know there is this book by Yuan Zhou:
Master Play: the style of Lee Chang Ho
Here is the review from Sensei Library
http://senseis.xmp.net/?MasterPlayTheStyleOfLeeChangho.

I bought my copy some time ago but I am still waiting for some quality time to spend a pair of evening in front of the Goban enjoying these games.

Go World commented on nearly 100 of his games of which 22 look to be at least five pages long.

The best way to get some free commented games of Lee Changho is probably by joining the fanclub and score 50% or more on their short test.

We have decided to create an international fan club for Lee Changho, 9-dan.
Would you like to join it? Mind you, it's not that easy.

First, you have to pass a short test on Lee, 9-dan
However, should you get 50% or more, you will receive an excellent reward - 50 commented games, played by Lee Changho.
