I don't know what I could contribute, but if you think of anything let me know. I drew/converted the title screens for Lemmings on the Atari Lynx (and tested it) and the did the music for Lemmings 2 on the SNES.

We're happy to promote this in the mag if you want to get in touch. We are out on the 6th of Feb, so can give it a little mention, along with something for the website.

Interesting! Good luck. I never knew that the Lemmings story was so expansive that it could support a full book.

Does it include solutions to the levels? There are quite a few levels I got stuck on in Lemmings 2: Tribes (though I completed all the levels on Lemmings 1 without any help - it took a while, but I got there!)

As long as it includes sufficient images, I'd be ok. I know a little (klein) German (Deutsch) from when I was at school 20 years ago...
