I'm getting into these advanced techniques and, while of course all the fingerings can be found on the web, it would be convenient to have a single master reference work that gives all the most useful fingerings for altissimo, microtones, and multiphonics. Does anyone know of such a book?

Daniel Kientzy’s book, can’t remember the name- not ‘Le sons multiple’ (which is brilliant multiphonics book)- but another one.
Also ‘Hello Mr Sax,’ which I think londiex wrote

Yes, check out Philipp Gerschlauer's book on fingerings for microtonal saxophone. I guess you could order it directly from him. You'll find him on facebook.

I can't find a single book that covers all the topics you mentioned, but these TWO books offer most of the information you're looking for:
Top Tones for Saxophone - Sigurd M. Rasher
Preliminary Exercises and Etudes in Contemporary Techniques for Saxophone - Ronald L. Caravan

I just saw this thread. I've researched this quite a bit over the years (microtonal playing/fingerings are a newer interest for me than multi's) and shed it to refine other aspects of my playing. I can't recall all of the books / writings I've found over the years, but these are two of the more digestible of those I've found. Others are much more in depth, but incredibly difficult to parse while they sit on a music stand. At least for me.
