Genesis sale over as of midnight

For many reasons, mostly political but partly ethical, I do not use Google, Facebook, Twitter. They practice corrupt business policies, while targeting conservative websites for censoring, facts repeatedly confirmed by news stories and by my sense that Facebook has taken action to prevent my readers from recommending Behind the Black to their friends.
Thus, I must have your direct support to keep this webpage alive. Not only does the money pay the bills, it gives me the freedom to speak honestly about science and culture, instead of being forced to write it as others demand.

You can also support me by buying one of my books, as noted in the boxes interspersed throughout the webpage. And if you buy the books through the ebookit links, I get a larger cut and I get it sooner.

The sale of the ebook edition of Genesis: the Story of Apollo 8 ended as of midnight, December 31, Pacific time.

Update: Once again, I want to thank all of those who have purchased the book. Enjoy it, and please feel free to post a review on, telling everyone else what you think!

    Got my copy, great read so far!

    Gotta love Amazon’s ability to provide instant gratification. Read about the sale and 30 seconds (and 2.99) later it was mine. It’s a very cool read about a time I grew up in. Thank’s Robert.

    Thanks for the remainder. With all the hectic Xmas excitement, I had forgotten to buy it for myself. I am looking forward to reading it on my Kindle. John Batchelor says it is a good read, and I seem to enjoy all his recommendations.

    Ugh, I hate making auto correct errors. Make that: thanks for the REMINDER.
