I also put a link on the Zafinn Books website to Atari-Forum 8)

Only a limited number of copies left! Volume Two is looking like we are go for the Summer :D

Just ordered the first volume as well, but volume 2 is the one I'm really interested in. Will you be able to give a pre-ordering period for volume 2 to the purchasers of volume 1? I don't want end up in a situation where volume 2 sells out before I manage to order it. I can imagine that the interest for volume 2 will be bigger than volume 1 as there are hardly no books (any at all?) covering Atari Corp.

@ Paolo and @ dhedberg, Thank you for ordering :-)

Atari Corp. will have its day! I will announce the availability of Volume 2 here first, hows that!

Looking at my timeline, with less than 10 copies left (and a few extra put aside for some people who asked me to hold copies), I think we might be looking at a July/August release for sure. More news as I get it.

It should be located between the front cover and first page, so not much of a treasure hunt. :lol:
Perhaps it fell out when opening the package?

Have you guys no patience! Calm, Zen.... :angel:

There are still some books left (a handful, including a few I was asked to hold for people, but they know I can't hold them forever), but I am prepared to go ahead in the next couple of weeks and fund the next Volume anyway. I am expecting the latest proof of Volume 2 later next week all going well, this is a critical part I need to concentrate on before I sign off the book. When I sign off it takes approx. 3-4 weeks (depending on various factors) to get delivery of the books from my printer. I won't let you down :-)

More importantly, I won't let this homage to Atari Corp escape publication, especially the Atari ST, the forgotten computer.

Hello Atarians :-)

Quick update for you on Volume 2. Proofing is on-going right now, and as soon as I sign off on the final document I'll let you know (here first as promised). I will be releasing the last 5 copies of Volume One today, these were copies held for people who couldn't commit at this time, so they have let me release them for sale.

If you did purchase a copy, how about getting a free vinyl bumper sticker? Go here https://twitter.com/zafinnbooks/status/ ... 6065657856 for details.... (fixed link!)

Take care out there!

@ dhedberg

That's what I said, then my eldest son nagged me to death about "social networking" :-) Anyway, Twitter is as far as I am going!

You can still send me a picture and I'll tweet it for you, and you'll get your sticker :-)
