Just uploaded a "new" version. You can download it here as a free pdf or buy it here as a paperback.

Now the only thing that is actually new with this version is the version number, which is now 0.3. The content is otherwise identical to version 1.2. It's just that as a public draft I think it really shouldn't be numbered 1.anything and so at risk of some confusion I have changed the sequence. I guess that makes the 1. versions collector's editions or something...

Finally done with the bibliography.

Actually it wasn't as bad as I was dreading cause I decided in this day and age of Amazon and Google that including the city and publisher is now unnecessary. My copy of MacKenzie's excellent An Engine Not a Camera came this week too and I noticed it doesn't have any cities listed either so maybe its the start of a trend. I'm guessing the cities were once part of the bibliography because you would need to call up an operator in that town in order to track down the publisher, clearly not the most necessary info in a google dominated world. Leaving out the publisher is probably a bit more controversial though. For one there is a small chance, particularly for big public domain books, that multiple publishers have released something in the same year. Beyond that though I suspect book publishers don't want to see themselves seen as unnecessary when making their biblography guidelines...
