    Inside LW 9

    I pre-ordered my copy of Dan Ablan's latest book. Unfortunately no details on Amazon as to what projects are in the book but if his previous efforts are anything to go by, it's going to be awesome!

    Pity I have to wait until January next year to receive it

    Perhaps Dan will pop in and fill us in on details about the book. I will be scooping this one up as well. Hopefully it will be released before LW 10 comes out.

    Dan is just about finished writing ILW9. I don't believe there is anything in it beyond the current version (LW9.0).

    I'll be getting this as well (still plugging away at the LW9 Courseware). I assume there'll be a small group of textures for us to use in our projects, included?

    And this is also the last Inside LightWave book, right?
    That's what I heard.
