Hi All,

I think there are a bunch of other publishers who
could also be approached if it has not been done
so already.

* Geomorphometry: concepts, software,applications*. Elsevier
* Open Source Approaches to Spatial Data Handling.Springer
* Applied Spatial Data Analysis with R (Use R). Springer
* Beginning MapServer: Open Source GIS Development. Apress
* GIS for Web Developers: Adding 'Where' to Your Web
   Applications. Pragmatic Bookshelf
* Desktop GIS: Mapping the Planet with Open Source Tools.
   Pragmatic Bookshelf
* Open Source GIS: A GRASS GIS Approach. Springer
* The KML Handbook: Geographic Visualization for the Web
   Addison-Wesley Professional

There are also a couple of FOSS4G related book in
lulu.com which could also be promoted at FOSS4G2009
to encourage new authors.

* Remote Sensing Raster Programming - A First Code Base
* A Practical Look At MapWindow GIS
* GRASS 6.0 in a Nutshell
* MapWinGIS Reference Manual: A function guide for the free MapWindow

It has been my hope that an "OSGeo GIS Book" would be
released some day but does not seem to be happening at
least at FOSS4G2009.
