We have now posted at
http://boggsspace.com/mall/first_man.asp

near final cover art and some further information for James Hansen's authorized biography of Neil Armstrong, to be published by Simon & Schuster in October.

This is going to be a good sized book--over 600 pages and given Hansen's reputation, quite strong.

We are taking pre-orders for copies SIGNED by Hansen at the list price of $29.95. Of course, as with all our hardbound books with dust jackets, we are wrapping in the dust jacket in an archival protective sleeve.

An important update:

Dr. Hansen will be signing copies at our shop in a closed session on October 26th, and we will begin shipping the book on the 28th with all books preordered expected to ship by November 2nd.

We have ordered extra copies of course, so if you have not ordered, you still have a chance.

My copies arrived safe and sound today, guys.

Thanks for a GREAT service and speedy shipping. Your packaging FAR surpassed an order I got from some other guys earlier this year. The "overwrap" archival-quality on the dustjacket is SUPERB !

Great Packing paid off. My box had a corner that was all banged up and the front of the box had a hole in it but the book was safe and sound.

Customer service of the highest order rarely gets the credit it deserves. I am only too happy to add my thanks for getting my copy of First Man and Rocketman to me in perfect condition........

Regards,

Rick.
