Ha, then I recommend countering with a new sig yourself: "The movie is sometimes better than the novella."

Maybe this is better for the listening thread, but Ian, what are you listening to?

Got anything to suggest to us?

Talking about movies, are the movie-rights for 'Only Death Is Real' already sold?

When I bought the Swedish Death Metal book from you at Waterstones, the largest book store in the UK, they hadn't heard of you and had to specially order it in! Do you think you could maybe try and remedy this situation by getting some of your books into Waterstones? Specifically the Glasgow one, so I can get one. Razz


Okay, I'll get on that! SWEDISH DEATH METAL was released long before we established our current European distribution arrangement, so I'm impressed that your special order was successful. When was that, and how long did you have to wait?



It was a few months ago, Novemberish I believe and, surprisingly it took only about 2 weeks! They did warn me that it could take any amount of time though so I can wholly believe your statement.

I hope, that someday a german version of this book comes out.
I don't want to read english translations of a german thinking human. That's not authentic.

Indeed. How about English lyrics written by a German thinking human, is that not authentic as well? If the book is written in English and then translated into German, how authentic would that be?

Thank God for the nationalists, because they make life seem so simple...

The author made a conscious choice to not just learn English, but an extremely high level of it which perhaps betters and challenges many native speakers, including myself.

The same author chose to write some of extreme metal's most important albums in that same language. Perhaps the origins of some of the material used to inspire it came from languages other than German.

This same author chose to write his life story in this particular language. It is his account, his words, and his reality.

Yeah, but don't bother the simple minded with such eloquent knowledge. They will not understand. That the book is originally written in English and that a German translation will NOT reflect the proper thoughts of the author, is not something nationalist people will understand.

Nationalism: the ideology for soccer hooligans before they bash the brains in of their fellow countrymen, all in the name of good sportsmanship. One nation under Gawd, but with different soccerteams.

According to Tom's Interview on DRS 3, there will be also an Italian version of the book, perhaps a French one, and, if the sales in Germany go well, a German Version.

I would probably be interested in reading the German version to improve my reading ability. Not at a point yet where I can revisit French, due to German getting in the way, but Italian might work due to having also studied Spanish. It all comes back VERY fast.
