Timeline of the Planet of the Apes

After my misadventure with Lulu's shipping costs to Canada, I managed to get ahold of a copy of Timeline of the Planet of the Apes via an auction by author Rich Handley on eBay -- and I'm glad I did!

Rich Handley's Timeline of the Planet of the Apes is a magnificent labor of love. He's taken on the staggering task of trying to make sense out of the jumble of contradictory facts and figures -- not to mention temporal paradoxes -- in the five original movies, the live-action and animated TV series, Tim Burton's remake, and more, presenting a fascinating chronology of humanity's downfall, the rise of the apes, and the ultimate fate of our planet.

The book is gorgeously designed, handsomely printed, copiously annotated, and more fun than -- you guessed it! -- a barrel of monkeys. Highly recommended.

And, to give Lulu its due, the packaging was excellent -- I've never seen a book so well packed for shipping by any commercial vendor -- it rivaled the job Carolyn does with copies of my own books sold from my eBay store.

Thanks, Robert, for your extremely kind words regarding my book! I hope you continue to enjoy it. I'm currently writing another Apes-related title--if you'd like, I can let you know when that book is available as well. (This next book will be available through Amazon, so you'll be able to avoid Lulu.)
