Interestingly, so far as that book "Analysis and 
Metaphysics" goes, I see no mention either of Carnap or of 
Also, the book seems much less devoted to metaphysics than 
its title might lead us to suppose.  This might explain why 
a book published in 1992 on metaphysics fails to mention 
Kripke, especially when we find that the main substance of 
the slim volume dates back as far as 1968.
One can more readily understand not mentioning Carnap in 
connection with metaphysics.
