A very preliminary result of calculation is presented of the eighth order QED contribution to the anomalous magnetic moment of the electron. Altogether 891 Feynman diagrams contribute to this term. By a method developed earlier authors have compressed them into about 100 integrals, which are evaluated using adaptive Monte Carlo integration routines. Their result is minus 0. 8 (2. 5)( alpha / pi )**4.
