Hi everyone, this is David Buckley. As far as I know, the booklet is all my work but I haven't seen a copy yet. Yes, it's based on my book and yes, it had to be approved by the manager and band.

I know some of you are frustrated by the non-appearance of the book. I have done over 100 interviews so far and I have most of it written. However, it's been delayed for numerous reasons - both professional and personal. As soon as I have a firm publication date I will let you all know.

Best wishes,

David

Delighted to hear that good news David. I'm really looking forward to reading it. May I suggest you contact Stig Olsen if you haven't decided on a cover design yet - http://www.humanleague.dk I'm very confident he would produce something very special. With respect, the Warholesque cover photo displayed on the amazon website is terrible. Even the same photo in it's original black and white form would be a huge improvement.

I agree about the cover. It's awful and I didn't approve it! I should get back in touch with Stig! I am busy updating my book on David Bowie but as soon as I have finished that I will get the League book finished.

Thanks for the prompt reply and the good news that the cover will be different and that Stig is the book designer :) The sooner you get back in touch with him the better =D Can we expect the League book next year? More info would be very much appreciated.

Thanks for the update David. People can stop speculating now and just (im)patiently wait on more news of the release date :)

I really hope the book is a huge success for you David. It seems ages ago since the last Human League book by Peter Nash. Oh, hold on, it IS ages ago...

Many thanks David. The news of the booklet featuring your essay is encouraging. Does this mean the band have now become more supportive of your as-yet-unfinished book?

The essay in the new booklet is a good start at an overview of information about the Human League, but i do expect a book to have a lot more details and information about the earlier years, and also more current information about the current era also.

I won't get too excited about this, Amazon are still saying currently unavailable, so there's no release date. =(

I'm not worried about that, I'm sure it will be released eventually.

What does worry me is, now that the author has attained semi-official band biographer status, that the book will provide a sanitised version of history.

I should think that if the book is sanitized that certain persons would have something to say about that!
