We have news!

We've collected 42 entries about Space, and they can now be purchased as the h2g2 coffee table book "Space and Space Travel vol 1"
at https://www.createspace.com/7667778 or https://www.amazon.com/dp/1978078587/ref=cm_sw_su_dp

Here's a quote from next week's Post(because no way could I write something as snappy as Dmitri can… smiley - biggrin):

"Do you know people who are beginning to do their Christmas shopping? You do? Then give them this link! We want to sell them a book!
Yes, friends: the long-awaited first volume of the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy: Earth Edition is now Available in Online Stores. Titled Space and Space Travel, Volume 1, this exquisite coffee-table tome features forty-two Entries on space, space travel, ufos, etc, by a variety of Researchers, taken from the Edited Guide. It's profusely illustrated. Tell all your friends, relatives, and acquaintances. What we hope to do, in addition to garnering a few bob to pay for Improvements, is to introduce h2g2 to a wider audience. Okay, and we really, really wanted to see our names on a coffee table. Tell your family to buy you one for Christmas. (We know it's pricey, but look at the quality!)"

We are aware that it isn't a cheap book. This is due to the colour illustrations, and the format, which counts for the majority of the cost. For h2g2.com, the margin is only a few pounds. We would have set the price lower if we could.

All the proceeds will go towards the maintenance and development of the h2g2 site, adding to the revenue from ads.

Share and Enjoy!

It doesn't sound quite as much in pounds - currently about £22.39.
