Hold on it’s coming

The English translation of our Simon Marius book is becoming a reality. Should become available to purchase early next year or possibly late in this one.

  1. PPS: But is it not said in the book: “Finally, Thony Christie did his best to turn all the translations into acceptable English free of glitches and grammatical howlers. His expertise in history of science was of invaluable help.”

  2. Make sure to plug the book shamelessly when it is available for purchase, for those of us with no memories who flit from moment to moment like small puppies
