Announcement   Announcement : Book - Commodore: the Amiga Years - to be released
   posted by RobertB on 14-Apr-2013 3:08:02 (2539 reads)
It's been a long time in coming, and there was publishing delay after delay, but now Brian Bagnall's new book, "Commodore: the Amiga Years", is set to be released on July 1. This is confirmed by Brian's website at Brain's Webiste.

and by the latest e-mail from Amazon.com which I received a few days ago and which had this link.

Read more ---->


The book not only tells about the Commodore Amiga but also the Commodore 8-bit computers which CBM built after 1984, the year at which Brian's previous book, "Commodore: a Company on the Edge", had stopped in the history of the company. Commodore: a Company on the Edge is still available, for example at this link.

I've pre-ordered my copy of Commodore: the Amiga Years!

A fine book to show at CommVEx 2013,

I did think this book had been cancelled with so many delays and no news, looking forward to reading, I kinda hope there is a third book about what happen to the brand and systems after commodore and cover some of the years of Amiga at Escom and Gateway etc. that be pretty neat.

@TrevorD

I pre-ordered it in June 2012. I've not had any e-mail about it recently though, but looking at my account it has an estimated delivery of 3rd August.

It would be nice it this worked out chronologically, with Petro's autobiography, but we're talking pretty close dates atm.

I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.
