I received the proof copy of my book last night, and it looks reasonably good. There is a little variation in the manufacturing. I took a lot of trouble over the typesetting, but the printer shifts the text up or down a few millimetres on some of the pages. The people at CreateSpace tell me that there is no way to eliminate the variation. But it is so slight that I doubt whether anyone else will notice.

Today I have approved the book for publication in physical form and on Kindle, and it should be available in both formats on Amazon within a week. If anyone is really desperate to have one, copies can be ordered directly from the manufacturer here: https://www.createspace.com/4313823 (in USD, and printed and dispatched from the US; once on Amazon, it will be local currency and local dispatch).

All of this has taken precedence over today’s Macro Stream — sorry about that.
