Any chance of re uploading the updated version? Your link does not work, says blog not found. I missed this last year. I bought your book but would love to get hold of the updated PDF version, many thanks.

It's the high res version I'd like. Anyone prepared to share?
Aw, that's unfortunate. I wonder if we'll ever get another update, then...
I wouldn't mind sending the pdf, but it's copyrighted, I suppose?

Well he gave the PDF away free in the end, so I doubt he would mind if you shared it.

Massive thanks to 607 for sharing this with me, I have replied to your PM mate to say thanks. I have now downloaded it so you can remove it from your Google Drive if you want to. :thumbsup:

Can you pass it on, manic? ;)
I hope jaycee will log in again! I could also give him a list of all the typos I found. ;) This is a very useful work, and much of it is fun to read too! (of course at some points it gets repetitive, it's not to be read as a novel :P)

Hi PixieDreams, very sorry that I missed your post back in May last year. Do you still want the PDF of the updated version?

By the way did you know that JayCee is selling an updated (but content reduced) version of the book?

See here,

Ah, interesting! I'll probably get it. I hope he did take out some of the typos for this edition. :P
In case the link goes defunct or someone doesn't want to go to eBay:

This is a revised 2020 Edition, designed to be cost reduced to make a paperback version affordable, it does not contain the game maps or merchandise pages from the original PDF version.
Makes sense! The level maps never seemed necessary to me. I'm not immediately sure what he means by "merchandise pages", though.

Maybe the original book had some pages devoted to Lemmings merchandising (ie. stuff like plush toys maybe)?  I don't remember if that's the case.
