So yes, one of the very many reasons I've been away from the Vault for so long. I'm very proud to announce that PS Publishing will be bringing out John Burke's original screenplay to THE SORCERERS. This is markedly different to the filmed version. I have amassed a stellar line-up, reprinting Ben Halligan's essay from his Michael Reeves bio is brilliant, as is getting everyon else on board. Complete with some lovely stills and never before seen contracts and letters and it's turning out to be the best project I've worked on to date.
I ordered a copy earlier today. Shipping to the U.S. was only 5 Quid. Am I the only person who is very surprised that this ended up being a hardcover with dustjacket? I was positive that it would have been strictly an oversized softcover, but am glad that I was wrong. Looks good, JM!
The book arrived today and it is fantastic! Thanks for your efforts in getting this published. The publisher forgot to put a number in the limitation page/box, so I'll just write in #2, since I'm sure you own copy #1. The packaging was also excellent; impossible for the book to get damaged or wet unless a steamroller ran over it.
