It has been a long time since I posted here, so long in fact I couldn't find my old login details (Username: AEX), but some kind admin has validated my new account and I have some news to tell you.
Oldtimers might remember my website "Atari Explorer" (and before that "The Atari Time Machine), when I was young and free I enjoyed keeping the Atari site updated in my spare time but I had this thing called "a family", and that has kept me for want of a better word... busy :-) I had mentioned before all this family stuff happened, I was working on a book, well I finally finished it...
Just some background before you all nod off to sleep, I decided that Curt and Marty had pretty much covered all there was to cover (and then some) with their great book and since then we've been treated to some awesome retro books that have hit the market. No point going over old ground, so I thought I'd design something a little different, something I wanted, a book cramed with as much "Atari Stuff" as possible. Sprinkle a little historical reference and some basic Atari facts throughout, and add as many great images as possible, hey presto! The result: We Love Atari (Volumes One and Two).
You can find all the details and keep up to date with the latest news at my website: www.zafinnbooks.com
I've still got a few things to do in the background before I can take orders, but it won't be long. The first (small) print run is complete and I have the books here, I didn't bother with KickStarter! As long as I can cover my costs (printing, packaging etc) and get the book safely to you (International Registered Mail Only), I'll be able to get Volume Two printed as soon as possible. Volume Two is ready to roll, I will put a few sneak peaks of that up soon. I will also get a second print run of Volume One organised for anybody who misses the first run.
You are all wondering how much is it: Price TBC. It will include P&P with Tracking and I'll ensure your book is well packaged. Keep an eye on the website.
No more waffle, thanks for hearing me out, and I hope those of you who do get this book enjoy it. Those who don't want the book, please enjoy the new updated Atari Explorer website which I will re-launch later this year.
P.S. Hello to all the AA members who remember me
