With the paperback and audiobook CD of Nick Mason's excellent book, "Inside Out: A Personal History of Pink Floyd", due for release this coming week, we have another great competition for you. We're giving you a chance to win one of five copies of the collectors edition audio CD set, which the publishers will ask Nick to sign for you!

Nick has been fully and enthusiastically involved throughout the production of the audio version of Inside Out. As well as enjoying recording his reading of the book, he has added a typically Floydian flourish to proceedings. As he says, ‘To fit the book on the CDs we had to lose a couple of jokes, so we’ve added a lot of funny noises instead!’

The chapters have been linked together by short montages which blend Nick’s selection from the sound and musical effects on Pink Floyd’s albums with additional, new sound FX, including Nick’s beloved Ferrari 250GTO.

The use of these effects has been a trademark of all Floyd albums, from the radio voices on Astronomy Domine from their debut album The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn to the heartbeat that opens The Dark Side Of The Moon and the peals of bells on The Division Bell.

For once we can genuinely say this is an audiobook that comes complete with bells and whistles - not to mention some Arctic winds, Venetian canals, telephones, aeroplanes and a squealing pig or two!

This audiobook brings us right up to date with Nick’s personal view of the band’s recent one-off reunion with Roger Waters. The whole package comes as 3 CDs, with a 32-page booklet of photographs, in a special collector’s pack, priced at £15.99, and will be released on 6 October.

The paperback of Inside Out, also fully updated, will be published at the same time, price £9.99.

The addition of the reunion section, which includes a number of new photos, will make both items very tempting propositions, even if the original book is already owned.

To be in with a chance of winning one of the five copies we have to give away, simply answer the following three questions correctly:
   1. What event has Nick added to "Inside Out" for the audiobook and paperback?
   2. True or false? Nick is the only member of the band to appear on ALL of Pink Floyd's albums?
   3. The hardback edition (released last October) had a cover designed by Storm Thorgerson. It included a figure in racing overalls. Who is wearing those overalls?

Send your entries via email with the subject line "Inside Out". Closing date for entries is midnight GMT on 21st October. We will then pick five correct entries at random, on 22nd October. Good luck!

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