Live coding: a user's manual is out this week, published open access by MIT Press. I have my copy already, after many years it's real!
I just put up a placeholder website, and will upload the pdf, epub and mobi ebook files there on Tuesday, maybe making a web version. It'd be interesting if people started contributing edits, adding extra chapters etc..
