"YOUR TICKET OUT OF HERE" - AN E-BOOK NO LONGER!

Enough people have e-mailed over the years asking me to do this, so I finally did.  "Your Ticket Out Of Here"... the complete and utter guide to TV and his music... is now available as a "real" BOOK.  Paper, pages, take it into the bath, cover it in purple crayon, the lot.

Get your copy now from... https://www.createspace.com/Customer/EStore.do?id=3405418

Plus, if you care, I also have books available about

JOHN OTWAY AND WILD WILLY BARRETT
https://www.createspace.com/Customer/EStore.do?id=3405599

and SPACE ROCK
https://www.createspace.com/Customer/EStore.do?id=3405601

Thanks
Dave Thompson

Thanks, GREAT NEWS!  :)
This is what I'd been waiting for. (In fact, I was starting to consider buying it as an e-book , seems it's not necessary now!!!) Will get it soon.  8)

You know, the Doctors have been on my "hmmm, I wonder..." list for a long time.  But after Richard's book, I'm not sure whether there's a need.  Or an audience.

great news  :)
i also waited for this long, cause i didn't want to buy an e-book...

but i think it won't become very cheap to get a copy, 25$ plus shipping.
will tim get some for sale on tour?

so i hope the tv times will follow as a printed version some day, too.
don't like to read on a computer   :D

Hey! Richard was just helping you with some extra material Dave.  :D

There's is such a great story I think someone should make a movie of it. It would be miles better than Velvet Goldmine.

Yeah! And all TV has to do is carry around a dozen heavy books to each gig in his Rolls Royce. ;) :-*

Oh, das E-Book ist zu meiner vollsten Zufriedenheit ! Ich liebe ja meinen schnuckeligen Bildschirm in der Ecke meines Schlafzimmers, wo ich meine Ruhe habe vor der nervigen Familie . :)
Werde mir das Buch trotzdem zulegen, als Fan von T.V. Smith ist das ein MUSS.
Ganz liebe Grüße an Dich  Uli, hoffe wir sehen uns am 15. November in Schwäbisch Gmünd. Balingen klappt leider bei uns nicht. :(

He will need the big suitcase anyway to carry the bucketloads of money he gets for the gigs.  ;D
Or am I totally mistaken?  ::) :P

Kommt drauf an zu welchem Gig TV die Bücher mitbringt.  ;)
Mal sehn, vielleicht geh ich zu beiden Gigs.  8)

will you be at the dortmund gig?

No, I'm further down South. Closest gigs to my home were Helfensteinfestival, Ulm and Stuttgart/Tuebingen.
This tour I'll have to drive one hour+ for the gigs in Balingen or S. Gmuend.
Possibly mansunkid and Gabumon might go to Dortmund?

Sorry, but I'm suffering from F.S.S. (Full Suitcase Syndrome) so I won't be able to carry Dave's book with me on tour (unless I leave out my own books and CDs.) Anyway, it would be just as expensive for him to ship them over to me as it would be to get them direct to you...
