The publisher always makes more money if you buy direct from the publisher. Whether the author gets more money depends on their deal with the publisher. As Steve Ginter is the publisher, it is always best to buy his books direct to maximise his revenue. Whether that means his authors get more money on books he didn't write himself - no idea.

So in this instance Fonthill get more money. Justo might or might not, but he will also benefit indirectly if his publisher makes more from his book in terms of future commissions.

Pity he seems not to know they have only built one of them.  Poor sole.

Or that Full Operational Capability for QE isn't scheduled until 2020 (and F-35 FOC for the RN not until a couple of years after that).  These ships will not be doing FONEXs in the Pacific during Johnson's tenure as FM.

I'd appreciate any explanation of the engine fairing - it doesn't look low drag to me given the flat surface between the inlets...?

Spacex blooper reel.  I have to imagine Blue Origin will be able to put together one of their own in the course of getting all the bugs ironed out on landing a New Glenn although hopefully with a somewhat steeper learning curve due to experience with New Shepard.



This video is glorious.  ;D

Always takes some exploding fireballs before getting that new rocket technology down.

My copy is a 1970 edition on semi-glossy paper. Later Putnams were printed on different paper.

I am afraid the books can only be ordered from Fonthill.

Best regards,
