Re: PDP-11 UNIX Sources

I found a copy of Lion's book at the Computer Literacy Bookshop in Vienna VA
about a year ago.    I immediately bought a copy.  I had heard of this book
but never actually saw a copy.

BTW, Computer Literacy is a really cool bookstore if you're ever in the
Washington area.  It started as three stores in the Silicon Valley and this
is their first store on the East coast.  It is huge and has about every
computer book in print.  They also have guest speakers a couple of times a
month.  Donald Knuth was even one of the guest speakers once.
