I am a regular lurker on this list; I've posted a few times. I just 
wanted to mention that my book, Shell Scripting: Expert Recipes for 
Linux, Bash and more, is due out on 12th August.  It's my first book, 
though my tutorial at http://steve-parker.org/sh/sh.shtml has been 
online since 2000.

It's not a beginner's shell / *nix introduction book, it's aimed at 
intermediate to advanced sysadmins.

At the rate I get for it, (at its RRP of £23.99) I'm personally better 
off per copy by selling £5 PDFs through PayPal; it's never going to pay 
the bills, I'm not plugging it here to make loadsamoney, but I am a keen 
teacher, and I really do think that this book has a good balance of 
teaching theory and teaching by example, that GLLUG members themselves 
may find interesting, or that GLLUG members' might want their customers 
to read.

It's got a "serious" page at http://sgpit.com/shellscripting, and a 
Facebook page at http://facebook.com/shellscript
The latest promo thing is a video on YouTube;

version of Space Invaders
