Excellent, looking forward to seeing that!
Got my proof copy of Richard in the mail today, going to do a book review on it and interview with Ben in August at my music blog, A Future in Noise. Pink cover!

Ben forwarded my details along to the publicist on June 17th and I got it yesterday by air mail, should be fairly soon! I am at around page 100 at the moment, will probably drop some very brief preliminary thoughts here in this thread when I am done before the proper review and interview next month.

Oh, nice! I should receive it by the end of next week then. Just in time to read it on the train... to Bilbao.

Don't you guys find it odd that all this is taking place at this time of the year??
Maybe I'm just being paranoid but... why now?
Why the Richey related articles, why MSP the album, why those books??

Is there sth that is about to happen??? Are this ppl trying to cover sth up? Oh god... XD

Forget it... Im just being freaking paranoid *lol*

i guess it's all in time for the new album. JFPL did really well and all noises about the new album are mainly positive. I doubt its anything more than that

Found this link on NME just now about the book, cos it was at the top of the page and I saw Manics and Richey menitoned my heart stopped for a split second thinking he'd returned! http://www.nme.com/news/manic-street-preachers/52338

Think the timing for the release is perfect to get additional publicity from the new album. I'm still not sure if I'll buy it but knowing me I will(I've boight everything else). Seems odd to think Richey is being fictionalised.......

Yeah, maybe you are right dear.
Perhaps I should stop thinking those things.
It is not nice to be constantly doubting everything and everyone =/

It could be a good book - if you're able to put aside the indignant, 'how dare he?' Manics fan rage at the whole business.
