Since repeated attempts at mailing have failed, and the subject is of
potential wider interest anyway, I am posting a response to the request:

 I ran out and bought mine a year and a fraction ago, when they were obviously
 unloading the 800 line.  The local technical bookstore was unable to get
 delivery on it then, so I went directly to Arari's APX - I had a catalog
 then - and got it by mail.  Seems to me, it was $19.95 or the like, but I
 wouldn't bet on it.

 If you can still contact them, it is certainly worth getting - it is all I
 have ever heard said about it plus quite a bit more.

 If they claim it can't be bought any more, see if they will agree - in
 writing - for you to make a copy of an existing one, for free or for a
 nominal fee.  If they will, I'll be glad to work something out with you.  It
 is an absolute 'must have' reference.

 An aside: the other 'must have' is their "ATARI Home Computer System Technical
 Reference Notes, includes: Operating System User's Manual, Operating System
 Source Listing, and Hardware Manual".  Same source, 500 or so pages of
 EVERYTHING KNOWN by the developers about the HW/SW!!!  I remember it at
 maybe $29.95, but wouldn't bet on that memory either.
