Guided by Voices - Bee Thousand

Marc Woodworth's excellent book about Bee Thousand is now in stores - or at least it should be, within the next couple of days. It's definitely in stock at Amazon, despite their lack of a cover image.

Word is that Mr. Pollard loves the book - and stay tuned for news of a possible book event in New York, in early December.

Meanwhile, here's the book's table of contents, courtesy of the Library of Congress website, which should give you an idea of how much stuff is jammed into these pages:

Another one to look forward to.One of the disadvantages of living in a tiny island in the middle of the med means
1) if I order the book from amazon I wait three weeks
2) If I order the book from my local store I have to wait a month and a half.

either way I lose
ah well.
