Oct 2009: Generation ZX Delayed
Yes, I know. I suck. But this time I have an excuse... I've had to move countries temporarily for work, and this has eaten into a bunch of time I should have spent writing. (You may have noticed the lack of updates of the website recently). The plus side is that I am now back on task, if not on track. Apologies to all concerned, but I seem to be terrible at estimating how long a book takes to write.
Jul 2009: The 8-Bit Book Limited Edition Hardback!
The 8-Bit Book Limited Edition Hardback is now available for pre-order. Both editions of the book should be ready for shipping by the end of August, meaning that purchasers should receive them in the first two weeks of September.

Early pre-orderers of the 8-Bit book received a free upgrade to the hardback book, and have been notified of this by email. If you pre-ordered the book after the cut-off date and would like to upgrade your order to the hardback edition, please contact me via the contact form.

Only 256 hardback books will be printed. First come, first served!
May 2009: Hiive Books has a Twitter Feed...
Hiive Books now has a twitter feed. (I refuse to call it "tweeting", "twittering" or any such idiotic term.)
However, for the most up-to-date news, information and other random frustrations that occur during the process of putting together books, you could do worse than take a look...
