We have an interesting update for you on Nick Mason's excellent book, "Inside Out: A Personal History of Pink Floyd". We brought you news of an audiobook on March 8th, and a week later, news of a re-designed paperback edition for the European market, on March 14th.

We heard late this afternoon from the publishers that Nick will be writing a new section covering the forthcoming Live 8 concert in London for inclusion in the paperback edition, which will also include pictures from the concert.

The audiobook will contain a bonus track, with Nick talking about the concert, and how the reunion happened.

Both will be released on October 6th. The paperback is going to be a smaller, more conventional size (akin to a novel), and will concentrate more on the text. The hardback edition will still be the one to get for the pictures, but the paperback will be far easier to read on the bus! Also, the price is a third of the hardback.

The audiobook will feature an abridged version of the book, read by Nick himself. Nick hasn't recorded the reading yet, and is not expected to do this for another few months. He is still finishing off the abridgement work on the text.

The audiobook is expected to clock in around the three hour mark, being released on 3 CDs. Whilst we expect that there will be snippets of music included, either in the background during key sequences, or between "chapters", the publishers cannot confirm this yet, as this is a licencing issue which is still being decided on.

The audiobook, we were told, will be released in "luxury packaging" which will include a 32-page booklet.

The addition of the Live 8 reunion section will make both items very tempting propositions, even if the original book is already owned.

Advance orders for the book are being taken now by Amazon UK, Amazon Canada, Amazon France, and Amazon Germany.

With regard to the audiobook, this is available from on Amazon UK, Amazon Canada, Amazon Germany, or Amazon France. Any items ordered from Amazon after entering their site from one of our special links, helps towards running costs of our site, and we appreciate it!

Our thanks to Elizabeth and Alexa at the publishers, Orion, for their continued help.
