Hi,

I have been collecting books in 'The Sinclair QL series'. Currently I have -
Making the most of the Sinclair QL
Word Processing with the Sinclair QL **
Advanced programming with the Sinclair QL **
Introducing the Sinclair QL
Database Management on the Sinclair QL
Desktop computing with the Sinclair QL
Machine Code Programming on the Sinclair QL
Using Graphics on the Sinclair QL
(** Multiple copies of these books.)

Does anyone know of any more books in this series?

Thanks in advance,

Whopper

QDOS Companion.
Artificial Intelligence (viewtopic.php?f=9&t=2398&start=50#p27711)

Those are two that spring to mind. Also, check out the books page on the wiki at https://qlwiki.qlforum.co.uk/doku.php?id=qlwiki:books with links to numerous books, most have cover images too.

This might help - https://qlwiki.qlforum.co.uk/doku.php?i ... hine+books, maybe.

Have fun and happy hunting.

Cheers,
Norm.

Norman,

Thank you for your links. I found two books that I don't have 'Profiting from the Sinclair QL' & 'Introduction to Superbasic on the Sinclair QL' I was able to order both. One seller was offering the Intro to Superbasic for £113.16 (plus P&P) a bit steep for me.

Sometimes I wish I'd decided to collect the Sunshine Books QL books instead. There are more of them.

There is also:
Profiting from the Sinclair QL - https://qlwiki.qlforum.co.uk/doku.php?i ... inclair_ql
Introduction to SuperBASIC on the Sinclair QL - https://qlwiki.qlforum.co.uk/doku.php?i ... inclair_ql

Over the years I have had numerous copies of all of these - but am now down to just seven (7) copies of Word Processing with the Sinclair QL

There are some crazy prices out there for 2nd hand QL books.

I found "Artificial Intelligence on the Sinclair QL" on Amazon.com recently at a reasonable price I think it came to just under £10 including delivery from New Zealand. At the moment there is a copy of Mathematics on the Sinclair QL by Czes Kosniowski for US $12.73 on Amazon.com.
