I'm expressing interest in a re-print of this. I've been following the progress for 12 months, I really hope 2020 sees a successful outcome for this project, well done for sticking with it j450nn014n .

What is the nearest contemporary publication to Mr. Strange's seminal work?

I have read the original (in a 3rd generation photocopy), and it is remarkable. It is also nearly 40 years old. Has there really been no more contemporary publication since?

There are areas of synthesis not even in their infancy when that work was published.

Not on the scale of Strange, but a good solid piece of work.

(Verified purchase) :tu:

I missed this thread somehow; I have an original, but I would definitely buy both a print and electronic copy.

The timing couldn't be better- I finally got around to looking at a copy, and the price made me wheeze. Here's hoping that there's a nicely-printed paper one that includes a download of a portable digital copy- that would be ideal.

A nicely bound, flat laying, hard-cover would be very nice indeed!

Just an update... looks like we'll be doing a small run of hard cover, and then lay-flat or cherlox or spiral binding, and there will be a PDF option. I'm thinking of doing a kickstarter just so we know who wants hard cover.

The price will be very much less than I thought, with a respectable royalty to the family.

Now working on cover art and introduction stuff.

Definitely will be out this year, but hoping before spring starts.
