And with sending to the Canary Islands -Spain-? Tell me (PM if you like), but I'm interested to preorder one. Decathon and others were amazing on the Spectrum 48k.

I want to preorder one.
I live in Norway, so I expect the shipping will be higher, bug that's not an issue... I really want a copy of this book!

Threads merged and thread renamed appropriately too

@boyo

Next time, just ask for the thread to be renamed rather than starting an identical (almost) thread

Here is a sample of the first 15 pages of the book, plus Simon Butler's memoir in full. The book is 264 pages. The paper inside is 155gsm silk and the cover 350gsm. The Ocean logo on the cover will be embossed.

If you would like to pre-order then please follow this link : http://tinyurl.com/pmjy88h

Thanks to Darren Doyle for the book images (mock up)

Gary Bracey has denied all the Robocop 3 rumours, saying that none of it was true.

Sorry for hijacking this thread a little, but in other news, I'm starting up a kickstarter campaign myself to write a "History of Tiertex" book, pre-orders are being taken now. Galahad has already indicated he'll want several copies to read on the bus, toilet etc...

It will detail the history of the company and interviewing all their TOP programmers, especially Donald "Rolling Thunder, Street Fighter, Human Killing Machine" Campbell and Dr John "Strider, Dynasty Wars" Prince who released their most memorable titles
