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.
    Lyrics. http://katebush.com/news/how-be-invisib ... ted-lyrics

    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...
