The paperback edition, now proof-read, is with the printer's for a few corrections. Out soon. Looks good:

Hi, Nash.

Usual delays. You get used to them. Occasioned this time by my asking for corrections to the proof copy, so it had to go back to the printer for the necessary amendments. That and the Xmas/New Year shut-down, of course. This means that I missed out on any potential pre-Xmas sales- which is a pity- but it'll be a better book in the long run.

I've passed beyond frustration to a zen-like calm. I'll let you know when it's finally 'out there'.

The paperback edition of my Tube memoir "The Well of Shadows: Underground London" is now available to order on Amazon UK. Here's the publicity blurb and cover:

As it is with postmen, so it is with the uniformed gate line staff on the London Underground. Invisible to most busy commuters, unless as an object of complaint or vilification, the figure in the glass box is barely credited by passengers with having any interior life at all.

Everything changes with the publication of former Customer Service Assistant Ed O’Regan’s Dante-esque memoir of over 13 years’ service in the living hell of London’s Tube network, where ghouls stalk the tunnels, passengers sometimes die, Management morph into Dad’s Army’s Captain Mainwaring and the poor bloody infantry on the front line have somehow to cope with whatever is thrown at them. Some are born mad, some achieve madness and some have madness thrust upon them.

A former theatre worker and Further Education lecturer, Ed’s unlikely decision to toil beneath the city streets is prompted by an I Ching reading after experiencing a series of mid-life crises, and his account of an inglorious ‘career’ is peppered with references as diverse as Hieronymus Bosch and the Travelling Wilburys, William Hogarth and The Rolling Stones. As the wallpaper inside CSA O’Regan’s skull unfolds, no reader of ‘The Well of Shadows’ will ever see the man in the glass box in quite the same light again.

“…highly enjoyable reading.” (The London Magazine)

“We read it with enthusiasm and were impressed by its originality and engaging style.” (The Susijn Agency)

I love you

Really hope you enjoy it, Nash.

If you do, please post a (preferably 5- Like a Star @ heaven ) review on the Amazon book page. But, really, anything would do.

An old friend in the US reports, much to my amazement, that he's been able to order a copy on the link above. So might be worth a try for other non-UK residents.

I put it in my shopping cart, but it is not letting me apply rightfully earned Amazon Credits towards purchase, and instead wants me to use something called money, what the frack?
