    During the meeting, I saw several folks that came up and indicated that they'd like to buy a book from our speaker, Greg Steeves. Unfortunately, he only brought a few and sold out rather quickly.

    His book, Cichlids of Africa - Volume I - Haplochromines is *the* definitive guide to Victorian cichlids out there right now.

    [​IMG]

    Book Review: http://www.cichlid-forum.com/articles/cichlids_of_africa.php

    With the help of our good friend, Anton Lamboj and photographer, Dave Hansen, Greg has put together one heck of a guide to these amazing fish.

    Please help support our friends who have put so much time and effort into making a dream come true and publishing their first book.

    I have it. I love it. It's the real deal. Think of the first time you picked up your favorite aquarium book...
    Axelrod? Konings? Amano?... It opened a new world, right?

    Well, here's your chance to do it all over again with a group of fish that has never before been described so comprehensively.

    The book is $25.00 and I will cover shipping for delivery to the next meeting.

    Greg is willing to autograph the books and send them out, just shoot me a PM on who'd you'd like it addressed to.

    With enough support, volume II is on the horizon. Please help out some really good folks and strong supporters of the hobby.

    Sign me up for a copy. I'll get you the cash this weekend, or let me know how to pay Greg directly.

    Got one of these when Anton spoke. Probably the best and most complete book on the topic.

    That's an awesome book! I picked up a copy at ACA '11 and reference it every time I see a new fish appear on Dave's or another fish list.

    Can't wait to read Volume 2.

    Is this book dealy-o for the November meeting? If so, I think my wife has been coaxed into having Santa bring me one. In the meantime I will pay for it.. ;)

    I haven't been to a meeting since then, but I requested one of Greg's books. Is there still one left I hope? If so, I can probably make the January meeting or perhaps stop off at Tony's house to pick it up.

    I never shored up the buy with Greg. I'll call him tonight and have them there for the January meeting. Sorry folks... sort of slipped through the cracks.

    Tony,
    Did this book order get done with Greg Steeves? Will they be available at the January meeting next week?
