Cancelled by Simon & Schuster earlier this year, Golenbock's book is due out from its new publisher in supposedly unaltered form, despite warnings from North Carolina State that the charges it makes are false and insufficiently substantiated. Among other allegations, Golenbock states that players' grades were fixed by Coach Valvano, positive drug tests were kept secret, and players received money, cars, etc., from a special fund. Golenbock is co-author of The Bronx Zoo (LJ 4/15/79) and other books. Watch for the fallout . -- MR
