Recently I have had several queries about articles posted here some years ago and which are no longer available online, from people who'd like to get hold of them. A couple of years ago I decided to archive some of the old articles, edit them and put them into a book, aptly entitled Stars and Sand. This book is a selection of articles from the very first one in November 2004, up to June 2008. You can still trawl through the archives on the site from those periods and you will discover some that didn't make it into the book and other posts too. However, the articles in the book are no longer available here at the site.
Stars and Sand is available as a paperback and as an ebook from Amazon, The Book Depository, Barnes and Noble, the Apple iBookstore, Waterstones, Eden Books, Abe Books, Lulu.com and all good online booksellers, along with my other books.
