(The book, that is, not Zappa's finest album from the 1980's)

I appreciate that dot matrix printers have the same sort of aroma as early synclavier patches, but let's hope that this book was printed on at the very least a bubble jet...

I was hoping to be able to acquire a copy while in London... disbelief

Nice marketing strategy to set the release date for FZ's birthday, though.

Or 17 days after the date of his death? Rolling Eyes

Oh, I had misread that. It does make sense if you're into that sort of coincidence, 17 years AND 17 days after his death being the same date as his 70th birthday...

Maybe somebody can explain why it is easy to ship to India or Rwanda, but not to the Netherlands or France? That's a serious question - what is the difference between Commonwealth and European Union by the British law?

I just received a reply:

"I am sorry, but we only have the rights for the UK and Commonwealth, but maybe we can ship elsewhere in the future."

I did search for `them or us` before posting - looks like the search page on this site is broken.

No, i used search and couldn't find it myself, mate... the thread was originally about an ebay listing of the book anyway so i didn't mean that you shouldn't repost, because it needs a thread of its own...but i just thought the guys would've automatically checked amazon, y'know?
