ANOTHER NEW TV SMITH BOOK?  WHEN IT RAINS....

Hey TUTS... you'll have read elsewhere on the site that it's now thirty years since the first issue of the TV Times rolled off the work photocopier - and to celebrate, I've put together a souvenir book telling the full story.

TV SMITH'S TV TIMES (NO RELATION) - THIRTIETH ANNIVERSARY EDITION

In print for the first time in thirty years, a 132 page digest of the very best (and least illegible) of the legendary TV Times (No Relation), the official publication of the TV Smith fan club between 1980-1983.

Softbound, 8x10" and black and white, the book includes all 43 original covers, plus choice articles, illustrations, a wealth of never-before published photos, unpublished material and more.

Normally $25 ... special offer for TUTS, $20

ORDER NOW FROM https://www.createspace.com/3421573

Thanks!

Any german TUT who wants to order this, too and is willing to order mine with his? Cause Createspace and me won't get friends, for some unknown reason (unknown even to their support) they don't like my credit card data and won't let me order anything.
If someone's willing to order me one with his order, I'd be very happy.

Meike - and anybody else who is having this problem.  I'm not sure what's going on with Createspace, and neither are they...

Anybody who is having difficulties can buy the book from me via Pay Pal.  Your copy will still be shipped by Createspace, but I'll send the payment through from here.

Cost to Germany and/or the UK will be $33 including standard shipping (11-25 days delivery estimate) and you should send your Pay Pal payment to me at dave@davethompsonbooks.com.

Hope this helps!

Thanks to everyone who's picked up a copy of the TV Times 30th anniversary book... and a reminder for everyone else, that it is still available at a TUTS discount of $20... but only until the end of March.

“When TV first told me that there were plans afoot to re-launch the TV Times  (No Relation), the fanzine that consumed almost four years of my life in the early 1980’s, my response was - Why?”
Dave Thompson (TV Times (No Relation) 30th Anniversary Edition).

"I, and the other dedicated members of the TV Times team, feel inspired to do this. It’s about having fun and spreading the word. We think this guy is gifted and what he has to say is worth listening to."
Tj Sundown (TV Times (No Relation) 44th edition)

Have your ordered Dave's book yet? It's the quickest way to catch up on the first 43 editions and a fantastic read.  :D

Has the new version of TV Times brought any increase in demand for your great 'TV Times 30th Anniversary' and 'Your Ticket Out Of Here' TV books, Dave?

...Another of my core goals behind this project.
