Yes, I am still lurking around. After some hiatus, we have again produced an English-language book. This time it is quite a topical one, presenting the initial results of the New Horizons reconnaissance mission at Pluto and its moons as of spring 2016 (the German version was published in earle June, the English version I have released this morning). I have written the historical and geological sections, my wife, a university chemist, has discussed the chemistry of the soil and atmosphere of Pluto, and Dr Rainer Riemann, astrophysicist at the University of Heidelberg who is actively participating in several ESA space missions, has added his own preface.
The full-colour printed edition is available from Amazon or CreateSpace, the ebook edition via KDP Select:
Not sure why the cover was not shown now?
I've recently joined and am hoping to have a good read of the forum over the next few weeks and get to know some of you. However my first post here is to alert anyone who's interested in philosophical fiction, or even slightly bizarre but meaningful fiction :-D that I am the author of 'Ox Herding: A Secular Pilgrimage,' available on Amazon as both an ebook and paperback. It's an adventure story akin to 'Alice in Wonderland,' but for grown-ups, and with meaning. :-D
Incidentally, if anyone wants to write a review (which doesn't have to be long or particularly detailed, but must be honest) then I'll happily provide a free copy of the book in whatever digital format suits you best.
Ok, that's it from me for now - just a brief introductory post.
This little booklet on spaceflight history is selling so well, to my surprise, that I decided it would be the first one that would be available not only in ebook formats ( http://www.xinxii.de/the-forgotten-astronauts-p-350121.html ) but also on paper ( http://www.amazon.co.uk/The-Forgotten-Astronauts-chapter-spaceflight/dp/149597362X/ref=sr_1_2/280-9050416-0862956?ie=UTF8&qid=1392997612&sr=8-2&keywords=The+Forgotten+Astronauts ).
