Time for an update on the Subhumans book!
The good news is 'Silence is no reaction - Forty years of Subhumans' is finished - all 650 pages of it - and it's been thoroughly read and approved by the whole band.
We even sent test prints to Ian and Dick, and they love the book, saying it looks suitably chunky and gorgeous!
The 'slightly less good' news is that you're going to have to wait just a little longer before you see it (but what's a few months between friends, right?) Because of the anticipated demand for it, and in the interests of fairness, we wanted it widely and easily available both sides of the Atlantic simultaneously, and that takes a little time to get lined up. But we now have.
The author, Ian Glasper, has himself announced;
"I'm very pleased to confirm that it's a joint publication between Earth Island Books and PM Press, with cover design by Welly Artcore. Pre-orders and a Kickstarter campaign will launch immediately after Xmas, with books shipping in March.
We've started to get a few advance reviews back already, and no doubt we'll be whetting your appetite with some of those over the coming months...
Thanks for your patience, but it'll be worth the wait. Because I'm such a huge fan of the band, this is my favourite book of mine to date, and I'd like to thank all of the Subhumans for allowing me to write it with/for/about them."
