Could you post photos of both editions please, I'm still undecided if I want to shell out the extra bucks or not. Thanks!

Aaagh! it seems I can't complete the check out, both with Internet Explorer 7 and Firefox 3.5. The checkout page is not working (buttons not working) and Firefox says that the security certificate is not valid. I've used the contact page to notify this, but I can't be sure if it is not working as well.
I wish to order a couple of copies both of the 8-bit book and c64 book, for me and a friend of mine.
Sorry for the slight OT.

If you send Andrew an e-mail via the Hiive Books website he'll definitely be able to help you out there. :)

Should be working now... Needed to reconfigure the server.

Here are some crappy iPhone shots of the book... Sorry about the crappiness, but I'll get some better shots organized soon.

From earlier posts, they should be getting sent out about now. I've asked for mine to be held back as I'm away for the next fortnight.

Andrew had two of the books with him at the retro show (SirClive beat me in an auction to one of them , doh !).

Had a good flick through, look very good, a lot of great games in there over a wide variety of machines. Really looking forward to getting mine, they honestly look superb.
