Dream makers : the uncommon people who write science fiction by Charles Platt( Book )

16 editions published between 1980 and 1983 in English and Undetermined and held by 419 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Charles Platt spent two years travelling America and England on a personal odyssey to interview thirty top writers in the field of science fiction. The aim was to have the authors tell readers how they created their most famous books, and answer some persistent questions readers might have: are these guys normal, wife-kids-mortgage-and a car in the garage? Each chapter focuses on a different author, and they are in geographical order, starting from the east coast of the US and moving westward
Make : electronics by Charles Platt( Book )

14 editions published between 2009 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 392 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Overview: The first edition of Make: Electronics established a new benchmark for introductory texts. This second edition enhances that learning experience. Here you will find unique, photographically precise diagrams of bread boarded components, to help you build circuits with speed and precision. A new shopping guide and a simplified range of components, will minimize your investment in parts for the projects. A completely new section on the Arduino shows you how to write properly structured programs instead of just downloading other people's code. Projects have been reworked to provide additional features, and the book has been restructured to offer a step-by-step learning process that is as clear and visually pleasing on handheld devices as it is on paper. Full color is used throughout. As before, Make: Electronics begins with the basics. You'll see for yourself how components work-and what happens when they don't. You'll short out a battery and overheat an LED. You'll also open up a potentiometer and a relay to see what's inside. No other book gives you such an opportunity to learn from real-life experiences. Ultimately, you will build gadgets that have lasting value, and you'll have a complete understanding of how they work. From capacitors to transistors to microcontrollers-it's all here
