Little, Brown has apparently canceled a much-anticipated book about the war in Afghanistan by Michael Hastings, based on "The Runaway General," last summer's explosive Rolling Stone article on Gen. Stanley McChrystal.

The book deal was inked shortly after the bombshell article was published in June 2010. The piece created such an uproar, with its claims of high-level insubordination in the military, that McChrystal, who was then running the war in Afghanistan, was summoned to Washington and fired by President Obama.
