It’s been a little quiet around here at Disquiet.com because on September 16 I submitted the final (pre-copyedit) draft of my book on Aphex Twin’s album Selected Ambient Works Volume II. The book will be published on February 13, 2014, as part of the 33 1/3 series, which is part of the Bloomsbury family. That book’s completion — again, with several rounds of copyediting to go — means I was wiped out, but I am now pretty much back at it. Above is an image from a tweet made from my publisher’s Twitter account earlier today of what appears to be an advance galley sampler promoting the six forthcoming titles in the 33 1/3 series. You can see the Aphex Twin book cover in the lower lefthand corner. If you tweet back at them — that is, at @333books — the title of which of the six books you are most interested in, this makes you eligible to win a copy of the sampler. Or as the tweet read: “Look what just came in: our new sampler galley. To win a copy, tweet us which title you are most excited about!”
And, er, the book is available for pre-order on Amazon, among other places.
