New BBC/Electron review in new edition of Retrogamer magazine (November 2020)

Post by markoceans » Fri Oct 30, 2020 8:44 pm

This month's Retrogamer magazine (issue 213) includes a full page colour advertisement for the new book Acorn - A World in Pixels on the inside front cover, as well as a nice review for the book on page 102. You can read more here.

The book is available now from idesine.com

Yeah, bit of a bummer that.

Another email, now delayed until early December, same reasons as before, and this could change again, so may not actually be available this side of Christmas.

Indeed ... I had to buy this for myself for Christmas, since I almost certainly won't be getting anything from anyone else. :lol:

Further email today saying the Container ship with the books is due into Folkestone Port on 22nd November , after which delivery takes 5-7 days to get to distributors.

They hope everyone gets their copy by Christmas.

Fingers crossed !

Latest update on idesine.com. Shouldn't be long now.

"The good news is that the books have now arrived in the UK and should be clearing Felixstowe Port on Monday, after some help from the port authorities. We expect to confirm a despatch date in the next couple of days."
