Hey Ramzy - great work you are doing - good luck tonight. A bit too far for me to travel from Sheffield I'm afraid, otherwise I would've been there.
Book is ordered by the way!

Just for the sake of it, make sure you're always frowning. :|
It shows the world that you've got substance and depth.

I had a fantastic evening and remembered Ramzy from Symposium. PSB was blasting out on the first floor of Waterstones and beer was on ice. Ramzy read a passage from his book and his evocative description of King's Cross will stay in the memory after the beer has worn off! It was good to see familiar faces and once again celebrate PSB! Thanks for signing my copy Ramzy.

Thanks for the kind words and to those of you who managed to make it down - pretty nerve-wracking but I had fun. Tom, your book sounds amazing and I'll certainly be ordering it!

I've read it, cover to cover. My head is spinning and I just want to spin the CD, but sleep comes first for me tonight. I urge Forum members and casual visitors to buy and keep returning to this book, and to Very itself.

Thanks. I am visiting London from Australia for the Inner Sanctum shows and will be there on the 21st. I'll go looking for it. I guess Waterstone's would be the best bet.

Something to read on the long plane journey back. :-)

I'm a little ashamed to admit I nearly burst into tears after reading this. I'm so happy it meant something to you! After all those drafts and re-drafts you never quite know. Thanks so much for the support.

It means a huge amount to me, more about that in another post. Your reply likewise nearly moved me to tears!
