  • At long last....

    The package I have been waiting for has arrived at my door.

    Inside, is the glossy black cover of....

    Vel's SMAX Guide, version 4.0

    And, having reviewed it one final time for look and feel....I'm very proud to announce that it is indeed, finally ready.

    Edit - Easiest way to find the book is to do an author search for Hartpence....not many of those around...lol

          I've been looking forward to this, congratulation!

          I'm going to buy that book really soon, the only question I have is what format the ebook is. I'll probably get the paperback, but I wondered if the electronic thingie was good as well.

              Twenty four bucks for postage?

              Are they shipping the lead proofs with it?

              I'll have to wait untill next payday, then.

                  Yay Vel! I'll get round to ordering at some point, but it looks damn good from where I'm sitting though

                    Though it looks I'll be playing Civ 3 now, not SMAC .

                        Morning guys! And again....thank you.....it would not have even been possible without all the debates, conversations, and refinements that took place right here on Apolyton.

                        You guys rule!

                        Mark, when I get home from work today, I shall send you the original graphic, which is bigger....I don't think I have a copy here at my work computer, but I shall check, and if so, I'll send it on from here....

                        (already makin' plans for a Civ3 Guide, and maybe a few others too....EU, MOO3? Hmmm....)

                        PS: Bond....You're KIDDING! YOW! I'm sorry man....that's obscene!

                        Hmmm....I wonder then....I know that GU had a contract with a printer in England....now I'm wondering if that might have fallen thru for them, cos surely the postage wouldn't be so high if it was shipping from England. I shall write to them this morning and see what's what with that.

                          Vel, Congratulations! I know how good it is to have a work published, when my poetry book was published some time ago I was really wondered -- how come that I wrote a book?

                          Now Im waiting for your Civ3 Guide...
                          I watched you fall. I think I pushed.
