No James Pond in The Amiga Book

Noticed there wasn't any content about James Pond in The Amiga Book by Retro Gamer. Find this surprising. Any one know why?

Has James Pond's exact taxonomic classification ever been made known? So he's a carp? Anyway, it would be weird if it was nothing about James Pond in there. IMO James Pond is right up there with system sellers like SotB etc.

dont forget the amiga book its a compilation of articles from past retro gamer issues, almost like a year edition, it has very little new content to it.
So if james pond wasnt highlighted in previous issues, like in a review or whatever, you wont find it on this special (amiga book) neither.

The question should be why he was never highlighted by retro gamer issues? not why he wasnt part of the amiga book.
