Hi all. My name is Sondre and i come from Oslo, Norway.
I am desperate to read some queenbooks, but they are no where to be find. At least here in Oslo.
But I have red something one the internet like some of the "Mercury and Me" book.
My question is, where can I find some more essential reading here on the world wide web?
I dont mean a normal biography but, something like "the true story" or "life on the road" if you know what i mean...

thanx

Here is the link to the "mercury and me" book if anyone are intrested

I love how this error has spread.

Just admit defeat Lester. Zeni will never lose.

As far as good photographs in books go, the Rex Collections' Queen edition is superb, but be warned: there are several inaccuracies in the accompanying text.

I wrote a couple of personal memoir books from the standpoint of a fan. Links are below.

I have your books, Daniel, I like them a lot. They are really only for Queen fans and I love to compare my own associations to Queen music to yours - they are very different. Of course, I am not an artist, just a consumer of art and as such very grateful for your books.

The check is in the mail YourValentine. That means a lot to me that you like them, and especially because your experience was different. For me, getting into Queen when I was 9-10-11, then becoming a man, then seeing Queen fade from the American musical landscape in the 1980s was a formative experience for me. I'm sure Queen means different things to different people, especially on these boards.

I want to check out Lester's book now, to add to my collection!

It's normal that music has a different impact on people. Different age, gender, country, language, cultural background...
However, it's the same music and therefore it's interesting to read how it triggers your creativity. I do not know about any other book that was written that way, so it has been a true novelty for me. With all the footnotes it's quite a journey for a foreign language reader to follow you - a true adventure.

Thanks, YourValentine. On top of being a Queen fan, I'm also an experimental writer, one who is trying to write in a different--some might say crazy or awful--ways. My mind wanders, especially when I listen to Queen, and so I wanted those books to reflect that. For a non-native speaker, reading those books would be aquite a journey. There is supposed to be a German translation at some point.

Why don't you buy 'Mercury and Me' the whole book cos it is actually really good.

Can't find books? Go on ebay ...
