New C128 Book on Amazon by the former tech editor of RUN magazine.

Think about that for a second. A new book about the Commodore 128. In 2019.

I can't wait to get my book in the mail. And can I also say - I am so glad this wasn't a Kickstarter thing. Just a book written, printed and sold.

Ordered it too. I may add this to a few small things I am planning on reviewing. Does anyone know if the Author spends any time in our community?

No, I don't think so. At least that's my impression. But after buying the book earlier this week I did a little research and contacted her directly. I asked if she would be open to me interviewing her and she accepted.

My book arrives tomorrow (Friday) so I will read it over the weekend. If all goes well the interview will happen early next week - the sooner the better, in my opinion.

More soon.

That is great news and I am looking forward to the interview.

My book should be here tomorrow too. Friday is C128 day round here! ;)

I really enjoyed it. The CP/M section was quite nice and integrating the new and old info was well done. All things considered, this was a great book.
