Another chance to buy the RG Amiga Book

Just got an email from Retro Gamer. Looks like the Amiga Book is being re-run again:

Ever since our Amiga bookazine was published in December we've been inundated with requests for it to be reprinted. We're delighted to say that a brand new revised version of our popular book is currently available to preorder from the Imagineshop.

These were like unicorn poo previously, so, hopefully, more of us will have a chance to get hold of copies.

If I see any locally then I'll snap them up again, just in case anyone can't get hold of them.

It is a bit annoying as from their email it will be slightly different from the first one, with extra content. I don't really want to buy another copy.

They also mentioned that some of their other bookazines will also released in a revised/updated state.

Happy

Did they cover the other Amigas this time, including the A600 and the A1200?

I think it is just pre-order at the moment so not sure.

I noticed they had a whole bunch of them (first edition) in the WH Smiths in the area after security at Glasgow airport last week, I would have gotten a few for anyone on here but I didn't want to carry them on holiday and back

@Bob - you're having more luck than me! I've checked 3 different WHS shops and haven't found 1 yet!

But I'll keep looking.. just in case

Crikey! It was nearly a year ago when I did the original post. I can't imagine that the shop would have kept stock for that long, so I may check locally again
