10 May - Deeper into the Darkness nears publication

Just finished checking the final laid out proofs for Deeper into the Darkness and the new edition of Into the Abyss - Divign to Adventure in the Liquid World. Its been a long process, but the books are looking great.

 

I've been a bit slow with getting these done for my publishers with being away in Florida for TEKDiveUSA, but my work is now done (yeh!) and its over to them to do the rest. Publication may slip into June as a result.

Just back from an awesome time at TEKDIveUSA's 3rd biannual conference. Presented about the wreck of HMS Hampshire and attended a series of lectures on both days, especially liked the wrecks of Guadalcanal and the medical lectures about such diving delights as immersion oedema, inwater recompression.

29 June 2017. Dive Scapa Flow Centenary edition is published

My advance copy of the Centenary 6th edition of Dive Scapa Flow has now arrived - I have it in my hands and it is a beautiful, stunning production by Whittles. I am blown away by it - it is my best book yet!

The book is designed to reflect the many 100th anniversary dates that are popping up at Scapa Flow just now, from the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Jutland, to the loss of the Hampshire, the loss of the Vanguard, the arrival of the German High Seas Fleet for internment at Scapa Flow and culminating in the 100th anniversary of the famous scuttle of the High Seas Fleet on 21 June 1919.

The 1st edition of this book was published in 1990 - and went through 5 editions over the course of the next 20 yeras. This classic book has now been given a full 21st century makeover with new text, new photos from MV Halton skipper Bob Anderson, new wreck scans from Chris Rowland and new labelled wreck illustrations by Rob Ward.I love it and cant stop reading it!

Hopefully this edition in 2017 will be good for the next 10-20 years!
