It’s been a little quiet around here recently – I’ve been out in California; moving into a new apartment; interviewing people for jobs; and generally keeping busy. Looks like it’ll be just as busy until the end of the year, but just to keep everyone in the loop:
* We’re perilously close to having finished manuscripts for the 2008 books on albums by Slayer, Sabbath, Lucinda Williams, and the Flying Burrito Brothers.
* The Patti Smith book is at proof stage, and is wonderful.
* The Tom Waits and Throbbing Gristle books are at the printers in Canada, but I don’t think these will quite hit the stores in time for Christmas. Which sucks.
* The Celine book is in our warehouse, and is currently shipping to Amazon.com, Amazon.ca, and many other top-secret locations. Thanks to everyone who entered the “Celine Prediction” contest (now closed): predictions ranged from No.1 to No.55, thereby proving indisputably that your guess is as good as mine.
