Hi,

Mr.Williams new book "Autocannon, History of Automatic Cannon and their Ammunition" has started to appear on bookshop websites, but not on the Crowood Press site, for pre-order. It is due out on 23-8-21. I believe the RRP is £45, but I have seen it advertized at £36. ISBN: 9781785009204.

I have been looking foward to this book since I heard about it, nice to see confermation of a publishing date.

Well, you know more about it than I do!

I am currently waiting to receive the first proofs to check and index.

Well please DO keep us posted on a release date, especially more so if/when pre-orders are confirmed.

Have you considered digital print editions of many of your works?

Duplicate hard copy libraries at two residences just aren't enough sometimes, when I suddenly find myself trying to remember something of your work, and realize it's not "Kindle-ized" or available in other "portable digital format". 

I can't travel with ALL your books. My flights would get expensive.

Well, I've been with my publishers for a long time, and it doesn't seem that they are keen on digital editions - they are traditional book-producers. 

I'm not sure that one copy of each book at each residence is really enough - don't you need a working copy and a "best" copy?  sunglasses

TBTH, I'm actually in possession of my 4th Foresight War book, from a few years ago.

The first three, I had this habit of "lending" them out to   others I thought would be interested in the story... and they lent it out.... and they never did get back to, so....

I'll be sure to keep the new edition to myself, tell those guys to buy their own....

Well, unless it's too close to Christmas release, I suppose.

And at least one backup copy at each location!

Which, unfortunately, isn't entirely a joke.
