Looking for

Blitz BASIC for the Amiga: A Complete Programming Guide by Neil Wright

but not even sure if it actually exists.  Has anyone ever seen a copy or maybe they own it?  if it does exist, it would be great to get it scanned as we need to encourage more use of Blitz for all us non-machine code programmers...

Anyone can Google the book and find the Google books link! This is no help other than telling us it was 400 pages long and published in 1995!

What about this?

http://www.canne-passion.eu/download-pdf-blitz-basic-for-the-amiga-book-by-sigma-press.pdf

This link got me very excited but sadly I think it's a bit of a scam site and I certainly wasn't going to enter any card details!  I would be happy to be proven wrong.

The search goes on...

Not what you're looking for, but it does have some programming books for basic. Donate and support the site, though, if you find anything useful from it.

Hope it helps.

Does anybody remember that other site, not bombjack, where the layout and interface was designed to mimic an Amiga Workbench screen?  Tons of manuals on there from what I recall.  I've been trying to find it but my google-fu is failing me, haha.  ;)
