Dear colleagues,
Please join me in congratuling Bill Aspray in having his Flatirons Lectures book out, Historical Studies in Computing, Information, and Society<https://www.springer.com/gp/book/9783030189549>.
Simultanuously with Jeff Yost joining me as editor in the Springer History of Computing Series<https://www.springer.com/series/8442>, 2019 is an exceptionally productive year:
Bill Aspray and Jim Cortada wrote From Urban Legends to Political Fact-Checking; Online Scrutiny in America, 1990-2015<https://www.springer.com/gp/book/9783030229511>.
Simon Lavington brought Early Computing in Britain; Ferranti Ltd. and Government Funding, 1948 — 1958<https://www.springer.com/gp/book/9783030151027>.
Tom Haigh's Exploring the Early Digital<https://www.springer.com/gp/book/9783030021511> appears jointly in our series and Springer's Media of Cooperation.
Recent titles of interest outside our series:
Liesbeth de Mol and Giuseppe Primiero, Reflections on Programming Systems<https://www.springer.com/gp/book/9783319972251>; and edited by Chris Leslie and Martin Schmitt, Histories of Computing in Eastern Europe.<https://www.springer.com/cn/book/9783030291594>

SHOT in Milan:
For new ideas and book plans do join me or Springer's Wayne Wheeler at SHOT in Milan later this month. Or just mail me or Jeff Yost off list.

More good news concerning the old fashioned trade of buying bundles of printed paper:
thanks to Wayne Wheeler's diplomacy, prices of the History of Computing books have come within reach of mortals. The best price you can get is when your university library is subscribing to a Springer package: in that case you may order your print on demand copy for 25 (in several currencies)

Autumn discount:
Springer has decided extend its usual conference discount to all SIGCIS list member and to cover the whole of the autumn. STARTING TODAY
