The revised and expanded (and final) edition of the New York Times Bestseller "Dark Mission - The Secret History of NASA" by Richard C. Hoagland and Mike Bara, will be released to bookstores on October 6th, 2009. Coming 2 years after the release of the original edition, the newly revised and expanded edition will feature a new 47 page insert which updates and expands upon issues raised in the original edition. It will also include more than 20 new, never before seen images of anomalies on the Moon and Mars.
"We're very excited about this new edition," co-author Richard C. Hoagland stated in an interview. "It closes some open loops, clarifies some ongoing disputes, and takes the whole premise of the book in a new direction."
Co-author Mike Bara agrees. "I think readers will be more than satisfied with the new edition," he said. "We've moved the ball forward quite a bit while addressing lingering issues raised in the first edition."
Publisher Feral House Books is also looking at ways to distribute high resolution versions of the more than 100 images published in Dark Mission. "There is no comparison to the fidelity you can get from these digital images on a computer screen compared to print," Bara said. "However we decide to distribute the images electronically, purchasers of the new edition will certainly get a discount, at the least."
The revised and expanded edition of Dark Mission will be in bookstores October 6th, with pre-ordering through outlets like Barnes and Noble.com and Amazon.com beginning in August.
