    Still stuck on debating whether I want the ebook or to just suck it up and go for the paperback.

    $50.49 for softcover and $60.99 for hardcover?

    I'd love to support and buy it (especially the physical thing), but these prices are just not even funny...

    Yow, that does seem quite high. Indiegogo backing was significantly cheaper, lol.

    This was just posted on the Hellion facebook wall....

    "I am VERY UPSET because there is a false and VERY OFFENSIVE quote in the new book about women in metal -- "Not Just Tits In a Corset" -- that is credited to myself. It is one thing for a publisher to edit quotes in a story, but when an author makes up false and offensive quotes out of thin air, it is not okay -- especially when they concern and are insulting to Ronnie James Dio. I have copies of all of my communications with the author, as well as a complete copy of the interview which I did for the book. Not once did I ever say anything about Ronnie being "too tall" or anything like that. I have demanded a public retraction from the author and that the quote be removed from the book and not be shipped with that quote." -Ann Boleyn-

    Same goes for horror movie books...super high prices...I understand the cost of these things but sometimes the price is a turnoff because you don't really know the quality of the info you are getting in it.

    Just as a comparison... Mean Deviation, the unquestionable, absolute bible of progressive metal goes for about $20...

    Proper resolution, very good. I didn't want this book to have a shadow cast over it.
