    1. Please let the authors know via email or other social media alternatives so that future readers who wishes to obtain the references will be able to access them.

    1. All you need to do is to do a “Save As…” on each of the chapters, and you will obtain the PDF files that you wished to read.

    1. There is a converter available that allows you to change the PDF files into EPUB files for your media consumption on your iDevices. However, the disadvantages is that you will lose some of the text formatting structures in the original PDF files, which can make some of the contents not as easy to read as one would think.

    1. No. But you can contribute by using an Office suite of your choice and some programs enabling some ways of combining multiple separate PDFs together into one big PDF file.

  1. Are plans for a hard copy still underway? I would buy it in a heartbeat; procedural content generation is one of my favourite game design topics. Also, reading paper books feels so nice.

  2. This is great! Thanks for making it available.
