end of an era... Goodbye to GlassNotes

Henry has thrown in the towel. If you don't own a copy of Glass Notes, try to snap one up on the secondary market before everyone is out of them. He's not printing any more of them. This, and then later Dudley's book was instrumental to me building my first hotshops.

Thanks Henry for revising it 4 times for us all. There are a whole lot of hotshops out there that you helped build.

Oh, Henry did all right. The last edition was truly a work of some really good specialists. He may yet do an ebook on casting.

Otherwise. you're on the money. Buy not just the 4th edition, get the 3rd too. They are very different books and both are invaluable.
I love living near Dudley. What a total treat.

I was talking to Henry in email yesterday after I posted that. He said that he is in the process of updating and converting it into an ebook as well.

I am glad I have my third and 4th editions of the book. I never had the earlier editions so I don't have them to compare.

Buy it new -> 1/2 the price

I was taken aback by the cost of Henry's book - $170-$700 for a used copy on ebay and amazon. I asked a friend that sells books to for our local library, and she turned me onto www.bookfinder.com. The used book price was in the same range - but 2 vendors (textbooks.com and Barnes and Noble) are still selling new copies for ~$90. I snagged one!

My own hot shop days are still a dream for the future. The crazy thing is, even if my hot shop never happens, purchasing this book appears to be a great investment.

I got my second edition as a hand-me-down from my T.A. at SIU. I bought my third edition somewhere, sometime ago. I got my Fourth edition free! when I completed Henry's puzzle section of his website in record time
He signed it, 'Congrats Mike. Glass is Good.'
Not for sale. I treasure these.

I wonder what the $700 edition has written in it....
