Publishing Things of Interest to Practically Everyone
Welcome to the 260 Press Website! We
offer technical books in areas such as nuclear testing, safety
and industrial issues.
Additionally, we will soon offer books, book chapters
and technical information as downloadable pdfs.
On the fiction side we offer two
Atomic Express and Dreamer--and
plan to offer more in the near future. Dreamer has
translated into Japanese and may even return to the states as
an anime! You can find Dreamer in Japanese and English here:
Two-Sixty Press also publishes music!
Our very first album, Signal, by
singer-songwriter Walt Gerding, was released last year and is
doing well. Look for another album in the fall of 2007.
Obsessive, compulsive or just someone
with an intense interest? You be the judge. Writer-researcher
R. Miller has been interested in America's nuclear testing program
for years. In 1986 Macmillan published Under
the Cloud, his history book about America's nuclear
testing program. For years it was out of print, but you can find
(we think) a better cover. You can also find all kinds of information
about what kind of nuclear fallout fell where. Based on the National
Cancer Institute's 1997 study, Miller's volumes of The U.S.
Atlas of Nuclear Fallout takes it to the next couple of
levels. You can get some idea of the technical ground covered
by clicking here, here and here.
But this website isn't just about
atomic bombs, novels and industrial safety stuff. There's cool panoramac
views of places like Cannon Beach Oregon and Mount St.
Helens---and even videos of
nukes (naturally) and, well, a summer
water park. They might
take a while to load, but we think they're worth the wait (not
long---a couple of minutes max.) More stuff is in the works,
including podcasts about music, politics and all the things
that make life interesting. Highly recommended.
So there you have it. Nukes, technical
industrial stuff, some great novels and even music albums.
What more could anyone want? Actually, there's even more---just
browse through our menu on the left side of this page. Who
knows, you might find something that you can't find anywhere
By the way, in the third photo
down from the left, the guy sitting on the railroad bridge
is the author of our safety
book. Go figure.
All our books can be ordered through
Amazon.com and we even include links.
Again, navigating this website is easy. Just click on the links on the vertical
menu on the left side of this page. We hope you enjoy our site!
