For those who haven't read it, the book is essentially about how computers work, from first principles up to integrated circuits and high-level programming languages. What makes the book special is the excellent writing: it has an engaging, conversational style, and is accessible to a non-technical audience.
If he's taking more time for himself (and hopefully, to write more books, as indicated in the post), that's awesome.
I wasn't aware of The Annotated Turing. Can't wait to read these. Must be awesome coming from someone who has taught and guided millions.

Of course, can't think of it any other way!
Good for the author. I hope retirement is fulfilling, long and well-financed.
