GAUER, Stephen

Stephen Gauer is a Vancouver computer trainer, consultant and freelance writer, who's imprint Electric Avenue Press released Using Mosaic for Windows in 1994. Gauer's book will be distributed internationally by UCL Press in London. "This proves the collaborative power of the Internet for small businesses like mine," says Gauer. "I met Andrew Carrick, the UCL Press science editor, when I posted the first internet announcement about my book back in August. We corresponded by email after I sent him a copy of my book. I signed the contract in November and then sent UCL Press 15 megabytes of text and graphics using the Internet... What's most satisfying about the book is that it's an expression of all the skills I've developed in my working life."
