The Spanish version of my guide to the Observatory of the Roque de los Muchachos is in layout. I hope to have it on sale in early February.
Click on the image to read an extract of the book “A Breathtaking Window on the Universe: A guide to the observatory at the Roque de Los Muchachos” on sale December. The recommended retail price is €15, but books bought through the publisher’s website will cost just 12€ + P&P.
Today I sent my book off to the printers. It should be on sale in 3-4 weeks.
…and we interrupt our regular programming to bring you a news flash. BSFA (British Science Fiction Association) preliminary 2008 award nominations for non-fiction includes: “How to Burn a Chicken – Using Astronomy for Worldbuilding” by Sheila Crosby (in Escape Velocity, vol 1 issue 2) I haven’t been able to confirm this yet, but the unconfirmed report made my day.
