Back in print - thank you Titan Books!
on 7 May 2011
I've got quite a few of Newman's books but, alas, I missed out on this when it first appeared almost 20 years ago (and it has now been out of print for the past 17). Despite living in the Glasgow/Edinburgh area, I've never in all those years came across a secondhand copy - and even the old UK and US paperbacks go for a pretty sum on eBay.
Well, thanks to the good folks at Titan Books it's now back in print - and not simply a reprint with a spanking new cover.
Think of this as the DVD equivalent of a 20th Anniversary Special Edition, for it comes with 120 pages of bonus material:
*alternate scenes and endings
*16 pages of annotations
*extracts from the author's unproduced screenplay
*and even a bonus short story.
Also, the main text features minor corrections to the 1992 edition.
Titan will also reissue the other two novels in the sequence, together with the long-awaited fourth volume, Johnny Alucard.
Got my copy this morning, and I'm really chuffed to bits: glad, now, I didn't fork out for an old copy off eBay or Abebooks - this new B-format edition is far superior.
