Re: The 8-Bit Book - 1981 to 199x ... FOREWORD BY DAVID BRABEN!!

Love the look of the upcoming Sinclair/Speccy book that states a 'November' release(on the Hiive site). Is this book on schedule? If it is I'll preorder this week. I'm really quite excited about this one :) Hell no! Am I ever on schedule??? I have to update the website, but I'm waiting for BT to in...

Re: The 8-Bit Book - 1981 to 199x ... FOREWORD BY DAVID BRABEN!!

Still not got mine or even an email .... :cry: hi Nick. I'll check into that. I've got a batch of emails to send out as soon as my home Internet connection gets set up... The book may have been sent already. Send me a msg via the hiive books web site with your order number and I'll double check. An...

When I pre-ordered the book I was told it would be available in March though ;) Now think about it... When have I EVER got that right!!! :oops: Se...

Re: From the forum question for issue 70

The original Alone in the Dark... Too many moments to mention, but a few are: The ballroom dancers frozen in place - crapped myself when they started whirling around. The random jangly noises. The thing crashing through the attic window. The banging on the trapdoor in the same place. The cthonian(?)...

Re: The 8-Bit Book - 1981 to 199x ... FOREWORD BY DAVID BRABEN!!

Yeah, sorry,.. Not only have I had to change jobs and continents, but I've also had to contend with a upstream server problem causing the server to be down for about three weeks until I could convince AT&T to come and fix it. All the shipping information is on the server, so I couldn't get to it. Th...

Should be working now... Needed to reconfigure the server. Here are some crappy iPhone shots of the book...

Long(!) overdue update, but I've been moving countries in the past few weeks... The books will be arriving at Hiive HQ early next week, and will be sent out in the two weeks subsequent to that... Apparently there was an issue with "drying the ink". Beats "snow on the line" I guess. Sorry for the hol...

Pre - ordered, but price for postage was a bit of a shock.
It'll be a shade under 6x8"...

And yeah, sorry about the postage... It's shipped from the States, and the exchange rate isn't great right now :(
