English edition!

From Vultures to Vampires is the fascinating true account of what happened to Commodore after the fateful New York auction sale of 1995.

Volume 3 covers the period from 2010 to 2023 and follows the continuing evolution of next-generation PowerPC Amiga systems and the coming-of-age 68K emulation, coupled with the rise of cycle-accurate FPGA-based Amiga clones.

Thanks to the vibrant community of enthusiasts, developers and makers, plus a few intrepid companies and individuals who, against all odds, continue to pour vast amounts of money into new hardware and software, the Amiga truely is the computer that refuses to die.

The Author

With a career spanning more than 45 years in the computer industry, David John Pleasance’s success is legendary – it is estimated that he was directly responsible for the sale of some 2.25 million computers.

During his influential tenure at Commodore, which included offices in the UK, Switzerland (responsible for 35 countries) and the US, David formed long-term partnerships with the world’s leading publishers of games and productivity software, always at least one step ahead of the competition. He has set the standard in marketing and is specifically known for his pioneering idea of bringing combined computer and software packages to market.

No one else could be better qualified to tell this compelling, unbelievable (but true) story about the mismanagement of a global computer giant.
