Children of the ebook revolution

Extra! Extra! Read All About It!

Yes friends, Lithon Music and the PRAS have embraced the digital age and new technology with enthusiasm by making the first of Paul’s written work available as ebooks. You don’t need to own a Kindle digital reading device to download these as they should be available ‘in less than a minute’ (so Amazon assure us) for anyone with a laptop, PC or mobile device.

The second title to be uploaded for your enjoyment is ‘The Curious Case Of Richard Fielding And Other Stories’ which was originally printed in a small press edition back in 1987 and then again as part of ‘The Haunted Pages’ (a collection of ‘Twilight Zone’-styled short stories, biography and lyrics) a few years later.

That said, I was surprised how much I did manage to decipher from a lengthy review of ‘Grimm’ that has just been published on the Belgian website Music In Belgium. Read the rest of this entry
