I am very pleased to report that – as of Monday, January 3, 2011 – I now own the account through which Successful Lisp is published. This means that royalties from all new sales will accrue directly to me.
I thank all of you who have written with words of support and encouragement regarding my past difficulties with the publisher. If you have been deferring your purchase of Successful Lisp, now is the time to buy!
Frequently asked questions:
Yes, you may make a copy this HTML version so long as your copy is offline.
You may not publish Successful Lisp on any network accessible to the public, nor may you distribute offline copies in any form.
Yes! A print edition is available as of December 2004 (ISBN 3-937526-00-5). The book contains numerous corrections and improved typography and layout.
You can order Successful Lisp from Amazon.com, or check with your local bookstore or other major online booksellers.
No. I don't have enough free time to engage in conversations of this nature. I suggest that you talk to your Lisp vendor regarding system or compatibility issues.
You might also solicit the help of the fine people who frequent the comp.lang.lisp newsgroup. Be aware that these people take a dim view of students who ask for homework solutions unless the student has made (and documented) an attempt to solve the problem. Students will find that they receive a warmer welcome in comp.lang.lisp if they ask a specific question related to understanding a particular aspect of Lisp.
I have no plans to further maintain the online version of Successful Lisp.
