Really. Get a copy. My copy is damn near dog-earred to death.


Definitely get a copy of the Spaceship Handbook. Lots of fantastic information, it is hard cover and not that expensive. Got mine three weeks ago and it is a gold mine of hard to find detals.

I agree ..."The Dream Machines" by Ron Miller is also very good.
