News   News : Pleasance and Dickinson planning a new Amiga book, seeks funding on Kickstarter
   posted by Petah on 17-Jun-2020 15:15:42 (763 reads)
Known to many Amiga users for being a former Commodore UK executive, David Pleasance has recently started a Kickstarter to fund the upcoming book From Vultures to Vampires. Serving as a sequel to his previous work, Commodore The Inside Story, the new book is meant to tell the story starting with Escom's venture into the Amiga market until the law suits that followed "and beyond". Joining as a co-author, Trevor Dickinson - head of A-EON Technology - will help to, quoting the campaign description, expose "those companies and individuals who brought negativity and celebrates those who have against all odds prevailed and are now ensuring the Amiga not only 'lives on', but improves the potential to expand our community".



Aiming to raise 25,000 GBP (roughly 28,000) before Sunday, July 19 22:00 CET, the book is expected to be 368 pages printed in a hardback format. Interested users may want to point their web browser of choice to Kickstarter, where a a physical copy can be secured width a 30 GBP pledge or, optionally, a digital e-book can be had for half the price. Higher backer levels include access to Commodore: The Inside Story as an audiobook or e-book and the Amiga 2020 movie by Wavem Studios.

OK, just gotta say this. Five years ago I showed up to buy a Tabor and all I got is this book.....well, not even the book as it hasn't been written yet. Seems like a trend to me....

I put in my pledge.

I quite enjoyed David's first book.

Guess I need to read the Inside Story book first. I wonder if they'll use AmigaWriter, AbiWord for AmiCygnix, or PageStream to write the book. Maybe we should have an Amigaworld Poll to see within which Amiga software they use to write and design their book.
