Buy it! I just did and I know I won't regret it. This will be a fascinating look back at our journey here together all these years. I don't post much, but I've been here every day since Robert Fripp suggested to Bill that it would be a good idea to start a diary on his DGM website and then Permanent Flame. What a trip it has been! I look forward to looking backward. And I understand that a lot of the diary in the book wasn't posted to the websites. The cover photo alone sold me! :lol: :D :!:

Oh and I forgot it's signed, very rare and totally authorized by Bill. And when you go to the bookshelf twenty years from now, It will be even more special and precious.

I work as a printer and I can say that a small reprint of a quality book is very expensive due to the low quantity vs. production, labor and bindery.
It's one of the most special non music items from Bill that you can get.

Can i sell it even more? Infomercial maybe? :wink:

Sorry to keep posting on the same topic, but i have to say that Pomona seems as nice as S.O.S. with customer service. i received a prompt. personal e-mail from Ursula saying that the book was in the post and on it's way! Reminds me of the time my phone rang here in the States and it was a personal call from S.O.S. about my credit card. Was it Mandy? I forget but she was so nice and patient while i fumbled around for a card that would work internationaly (my bank had put extra security on my primary card that required signing up for Visa verification). Anyway, it seems that Bill is in good hands with this company too. And the name Ursula is soo sexy! :oops:

Hope my last comment didn't come across as mean spirited in any way towards the publishers and cost to ship?

Have take into consideration that in April 2014 Royal Mail Hiked their prices again to send Air Mail :cry:

No! Not at all. I'm just very excited about this release and would suggest that everyone consider snapping one up before they are gone. I know it came to almost exactly $47.00 but from what I understand that's just $1.00 per pound! :lol:

I'm just saying that small reprints can be pricey to do. (Plus shipping to the U.S.)

And I wasn't directing any comments directly to you, just trying to convey how nice it is to get personal service these days.

I Think my comment came down the tube before your comments appeared so i was most definitely not aiming anything towards you either!

After seeing your enthusiasm/knowledge pour out like it did, i thought twice about what i said and agree with you, purchase the book on this limited run.....

As Pomona have said, they are trimming down their operations, so to get this ''Hyperdreamer'' in print in the first place is a rare thing
indeed and should be purchased immediately!

My copy of the book arrived today. I have this minute browsed through it and it looks rather splendid indeed. I will be taking the book with me on holiday soon as it will no doubt make interesting reading. Well done to Pomona for re-releasing it and BN for being kind enough to autograph it too. Chris :D

''i don't know how much the book weighs will comment on that when i get mine''

book weighs 800 grammes £12-85 uk international standard to U.S etc etc

According to calculations the weight and postage/packing means actually Pomona are sending overseas at a loss on every book!

Pomona's costings are more than generous :wink:
