Sounds like it will be the same physical book as that sold on the website but without signature.

Strange really... they should have kept it truly exclusive by not making it available elsewhere other than the PSB online store.

Perhaps the publishers have a few surplus stock units that they need to shift.

Dunno
Well not so strange to publish a book in hardback and paperback. I think the limited edition may simply have a bookplate stuck in the front for Neil to sign.

Gosh that's very flattering. I don't know if Repeater would go for more of the same, though also I kind of assumed on top of that no one would actually want any more. I am meant to be writing another one about a different band for the same publisher but let's say it isn't going very well
Yeh I enjoyed that , I’d most deffo spend money on another !!!

So............. let's play 'Guess the 100' !

Here's my shot:

West End girls
Love comes quickly
Later tonight
A man could get arrested
Jack the lad
It's a sin
Shopping
Rent
It couldn't happen here
Kings Cross
I get excited, you get excited too
Left to my own devices
Your funny uncle
Nothing has been proved
I want you now
If there was love
So sorry I said
Being boring
This must be the place I waited years to leave
Only the wind
My October symphony
The end of the world
Jealousy
It must be obvious
Miserablism
Can you forgive her?
I wouldn't normally do this kind of thing
Dreaming of the Queen
Yesterday when I was mad
The theatre
To speak is a sin
Hey, Headmaster
Shameless
Too many people
Decadence
Metamorphosis
It always comes as a surprise
Red letter day
Up against it
The survivors
To step aside
The truck-driver and his mate
Delusions of grandeur
The view from your balcony
The calm before the storm
Happiness is an option
You only tell me you love me when you're drunk
Boy strange
Silver age
Home and dry
I get along
Birthday boy
London
Email
Love is a catastrophe
The night I fell in love
You choose
Always
Between two islands
Searching for the face of Jesus
Psychological
The Sodom and Gomorrah Show
I made my excuses and left
Minimal
Luna Park
I'm with stupid
Casanova in Hell
Twentieth Century
Indefinite leave to remain
Integral
Girls don't cry
The Resurrectionist
Bright young things
Love etc.
All over the world
Building a wall
King of Rome
The way it used to be
Legacy
We're all criminals now
The former enfant terrible
After the event
Leaving
Invisible
Your early stuff
Breathing space
Ego music
Hold on
Memory of the future
Everything means something
Requiem in denim and leopard skin
Love is a bourgeois construct
Flourescent
Inside a dream
Odd one out
The pop kids
Twenty something
The dictator decides
Sad robot world
Weidersehen
Gunpoint has a firm voice

I can confirm that the Faber link is indeed the same version as the sold out one on the official store and £15.00 cheaper with free postage (if you live in the UK) if you sign up to become a faber member. Best to all
if you can't always be good at least always be kind...

Thank you so much - just ordered it. Shipping to me here in the US is only 10 GBP - also a lot cheaper than from the official site. It probably won’t be signed but that’s ok!

I've spoken to Faber and apparently their copies are signed as well, it seems that the official psb store is not completely forthcoming with the details, there are only 500 copies but the store didn't have them all as Faber had some as well

Snapped one up at 60 notes delivered...and I have it confirmed from Faber and Faber that the book will be signed. Hopefully signed by Neil Tennant rather than Dave in the mail room!


Ps. Thanks to hidroboy for the heads up on this.
you could say conventional ... and I could claim intentional

Interestingly Kate Bush has announced a book.
Same publisher
Same artwork
Same thing.

If anyone bought more than one,will they be willing to sell it on to me please?
Have you seen the update about buying one from Faber and Faber?

https://www.faber.co.uk

Tip:

Join as a member before checking out as certainly though my PC I went nearly all the way through the process and no discount was forthcoming.

You may have to wait for their site to catch up if you have accepted cookies - really check that you have joined and that the volume is offered to you for £60.00!

You could even try Coles Books although for £14.99 maybe they know someone who's been gifted some copies! If it looks too good to be true it probably is...

At that price, it has to be worth a punt for a second copy. I'll let you know ;)

You are welcome. Their link to pre-order seems to be dead now....

Now apparently sold out on Faber as well - just the standard £14.99 version available. All very weird really...
