The link is functional here.
Perhaps you caught it at a moment when the BlaisePascal server was being upgraded, or some such.

The Forum bookstore link is a 404.
I have just corrected the link for "Computer Math and Games in Pascal by David Dirkse" on
https://wiki.freepascal.org/Pascal_and_Lazarus_Books_and_Magazines
from
https://www.blaisepascalmagazine.eu/david_dirkse/UK_Book_Department_DavData.html
to
https://www.blaisepascalmagazine.eu/product/books-computer-graphics-math-games-download-pdf/


It also used to be on Amazon, but it run out of stock:
Computer Math & Games in Pascal Paperback – International Edition, November 1, 2015
by David Dirkse (Author), Detlef Overbeek (Drawings, Editor), Rik Smit (Illustrator), Peter Bijlsma (Technical Editor)
https://www.amazon.com/Computer-Games-Pascal-David-Dirkse/dp/9490968102

Thanks for you report.

Your first choice seems to be the only one specialized on Lazarus and Delphi.

If you can't buy it, there are generic options such as:

Forum is now corrected too :)


The new link that has appeared for the Lazarus Handbook... it might be more helpful and more lucrative for the Lazarus Handbook link to actually take you to the "buy" page, rather than the "preview" page.
o Lazarus v2.1.0 r63598, FPC v3.3.1 r45778, macOS 10.14.6 (with sup update), Xcode 11.3.1
o Lazarus v2.1.0 r61574, FPC v3.3.1 r42318, FreeBSD 12.1 amd64 (Parallels VM)
o FPC 3.0.4, FreeBSD 12-STABLE r361007 amd64
o Lazarus v2.1.0 r61574, FPC v3.0.4, Ubuntu 18.04 (Parallels VM)
