Re: We Love Atari (Volume One)

@ Paolo and @ dhedberg, Thank you for ordering :-) Atari Corp. will have its day! I will announce the availability of Volume 2 here first, hows that! Looking at my timeline, with less than 10 copies left (and a few extra put aside for some people who asked me to hold copies), I think we might be loo...

Re: We Love Atari (Volume One)

Volume 2 covers 1984-1996

So we could have anything from 8 - 64 Bit, but I am leaning towards our friend in the 16-Bit corner too :-)

Re: We Love Atari (Volume One)

Me too! I stopped checking for updates on “business is war” as I got the feeling it just wasn’t happening. It’s sad to me that the 8 bit Atari gets all the love, so many people I work with in IT here in the USA that are in their early 40s or older don’t even know the ST etc ever existed... Everytim...

Re: We Love Atari (Volume One)

There's been several books and movies about Atari Inc., telling us the story, giving us lots of pictures and arts, but not a single book that gives us insight in Atari Corp. and the development of the ST, MegaST, STe, MegaSTe, TT030, Falcon030, Lynx, and Jaguar. I'd love to read more about Atari Co...

Hi Karl, Ordered too. I have a problem too with my shipping address, PayPal locates me in UK but I'm in France... I wrote to the same address as Wietze to sort this out.

Hi dbsys, Of course it does! I got my 520STFM in 1987 and upgraded to a MEGA, I did almost everything on it. The books are not gaming specific, they cover everything Atari I could fit in, I just used a joystick on both covers to represent the different era's. I'm going to put some extracts on the we...

I published it myself, so copies will be limited. Volume One covers Atari from 1972-1983, and Vo...
