If you purchase the book directly from Charles Wood, he'll sign it for you if you make a request.




I didn't even know you could purchase directly from him

Well, maybe someday I'll get to hear him speak and I can have him sign it then.

It's "self published" so the only way to get it, is from him...

That was true previously but there are now additional options.

It is the Wiki of Charles Wood

From the link above: "The Atlas is now being distributed - and soon will be reprinted by - West Virginia University Press. The Chicago Distribution Center handles the actual sales..." I thought Chuck was trying to extricate himself from having to personally act as the sole distributor? My apologies if I'm wrong.

Ordered the book about a week ago from the web site. Talked to a lady the next day on the phone and was told it was shipping thw following day. Got a letter via snail mail today : Backordered, not shipped!

REALLY hate being mis-lead/lied to by a vendor!!!

Emailed them about my dis-pleasure, doubt they care.

So, which method of ordering allows one to request a signature by the author?
Thanks.

According to this order page for the 21st Century Atlas of the Moon the 2nd printing began in June 2013. At least I hope that is the case, since I ordered one a few days ago.

peace & clear skies,





I'd be interested to know whether or not this second printing clears up the typos and such that crept into the first run.

I mentioned this somewhere else, but...

The 21st Century Atlas is a perfect companion for reading "Modern Moon". I just re-read MM, and by chance used the atlas with it. Killer! They used to bundle MM and Rukl in a slipcase; but this would be the better pairing now (no disrespect to Rukl, which is still king IMO).

I agree with Rick--21st Century Atlas and Modern Moon are the best lunar companions I have run across.

I too would like to order the 21st Century Atlas of the Moon. But I don't see an option to buy it directly from the author. Looks like he has handed off duties to that university press. And they are out of stock at the moment. I guess Modern Moon is out of print too ?

Why don't you guys just email Chuck Wood and ask how to get one?

I started this thread because I was having trouble finding the book and was pointed to the distributor, who is turning out to be less than a 'stand up' player. Now it's important to me to let others know that the distributor is not shipping the book and is not responding to queries. I wish someone before me had done the same.

Wood is the books author. He is not the distributer I am dealing with. This hasn't been about Wood since I placed my order with West Virginia University Press, they told me the book would ship the following day (over 3 weeks ago now) and took my CC number. I see informing potential buyers about past experiences with a vendor as a good thing to do.

Well sure; but if you actually want an atlas, try contacting Wood.
