I bought the book via Amazon. The book is hard cover YELLOW and I think from readiny the first few pages it is a Woman author. The illustrator is also a woman!

EDIT 21/05/2017
Almost forgot this the "Farewell" program at the end written by the author spells out,albeit very badly, the authors first name as "TONY" (masculine spelling) and has a facsimile of the authors own signature, again "Tony" at the bottom of the page. In the later revision as used by Thurnor this program has been deliberately changed(by the author presumably) to spell out the name as "Toni"(feminine spelling)
I stand corrected, I never had any reason to access this forum before. My assumption was that most people got it wrong because of the Tony/Toni spelling and I've seen him/her referred to as "her" in an intro to the "Mastering MC on the Spectrum" series in ZX .Computing.

Regards;

Greg
