Hey gang!

For those of you who care about such things, I have a couple of new books coming... here is the write up-promo hype for the first:

THE WALDO SCRAPBOOKS is up for pre-order, folks!

From the 1960s through his death in 2015, Walt "Waldo" Quadrato was a hardcore Zappa fanatic -- one of the earliest, in fact. He amassed a huge collection of Zappa records, posters, pictures, articles and other ephemera. Some of you older Zappa fans will remember him as a regular contributor to the fanzine MOTHER PEOPLE.

This new book, THE WALDO SCRAPBOOKS, features a selection of Waldo's collected articles and other ephemera, presented in an old-school "fanzine" style. It is a loving tribute to Walter, as well as the music and musical genius he loved (as we all do).

This book (200 pages) is strictly limited to 100 numbered copies, and a portion of the proceeds will go to the American Cancer Society.


The order link for THE WALDO SCRAPBOOKS is http://spbpublishing.webs.com/apps/webstore/products/show/7370939

The second is coming in March or April... DISCORPORATE! is the sequel to A FREAK OUT IN THE MAKING, dealing with the making of Absolutely Free, Lumpy Gravy and We're Only In It For The Money. This should be a good one -- some details here that haven't been divulged before. Pre-orders will come next month probably. The cover of that one is below Smile

pre-ordered.

I found a work around to get it shipped elsewhere, but the shipping costs of USD 25 are an impudence.

Hey guys!

Sorry I've been a bit quiet...deadline slipped a bit for the Scrapbook due to some difficulties with Amazon. Everything is on back on track now, and we finally go to press on Monday.

So I was thinking about the postage situation. Here is a quick fix -- I'm thinking that if you purchased the Waldo Scrapbooks, you do NOT have to pay postage for the next new book, DISCORPORATE (which will probably go to press inside the next month). I hope that will help.

DISCORPORATE pre-orders will probably go up later today...stay tuned! Smile
