The foreword is courtesy of Chris Berry from No Future Records, who released the original 'A Country Fit For Heroes' compilation.

Before anyone asks, the wonderful cover picture is of Gerry from The Syphletix.

The book is being designed by Welly Artcore, who worked with us on Ian’s recent Subhumans book, ‘Silence Is No Reaction: Forty Years Of Subhumans’ so it will of course look amazing.

Please share this news so people know the book is coming out in Spring 2024.
