I don't think that it is available online. It may be possible to get a copy via Mario Marsili. I think he is now living in Arizona (?).

I don't know who that is. Any way you can find out? I'd be willing to pay for a DVD. Perhaps others on the board would be, as well   ;)

Thanks!

He was a member here for a while a very long time ago (the contact info is probably out of date now):

Uh, oh. Both amazon.co.uk and amazon.de are showing no stock. Peter?

1 - I made former board member Lewis Hawk order his copy the other day. May be ended up getting the infamous "one item left" on the UK website.
2 - Nobody's telling you anything because all the board members are assholes (needless to say, except for Marmota-b but she isn't around anymore) but I'm really enjoying your changing signature pics.

The greatest news about all this apocalypse is that the buyer of my grandparents house, that I love and that I really want to keep around, is English. He was about to sign the contract the other day but BOOM, Brexit, the dropped a lot and he may need a visa every time he wants to go to his lovely summer house very soon. So he's now reconsidering the whole deal, which is great: the longer I keep the house, the more tolerant I am with DJ's weird tastes.

looks like there are no more copies of the book available from Peter on the UK or German site. A couple of copies available from other sellers on the US and UK sites, at huge markups. But no more regular-priced books available from Peter.

What's the deal - did Brexit cause a run on the books?  ;)

The GBU book should soon be available again. Amazon temporarily "suspended" the seller account since some irregularity needed to be clarified. I presume that the account will be reactivated soon.

Best,

I just started reading my copy, great photos.

Don't kill the messenger, but I've come across 2 errors so far:

p. 8.  (middle right) states "Unite States Army", the "d" is missing

p. 13 Figure 1.7, states "previously Bank of El Paso in A Fistful of Dollars", should be "For a Few Dollars More".

Photos really show Leone demonstrating to the actors exactly what he wanted them to do, even the way the soldiers held their guns when the prisoner was wearing the sign board, to be historically correct.

April 15, 1862 there was a small Civil War battle at Picacho Peak, the only Civil War battle in Arizona territory, so even west of New Mexico territory.

Well spotted errors. The "Unite States" mistake was not in the original manuscript text, but the error was introduced after taking the text document from (English) Microsoft Word to a (German) Mac Word program, and then flowing the text into (German) Adobe InDesign. "United States" was changed to "Unite States", along with other unwanted changes, presumably via some sort of auto-correction function (!). After the book was printed, I started reading chapter 1 and "Unite" sprung out of the text, and so I decided to stop reading further! It's always like that when you do proof-reading . . .

Best,
Peter

amazon.de has the book listed again (@ 65 Euros). I can't find it on amazon.co.uk

It still is not on Amazon itself, but on Amazon Marketplace, which means it is from a private seller using Amazon. I think it is also not possible to buy it in a book shop, it is probably only available over that Amazon Marketplace seller, which is as we all know the author himself.

The book is available at Amazon.de for worldwide shipping, but it is currently not linked to the other 4 Amazon-Europe sites. I think that the listings were automatically deleted while the book sales for temporarily suspended for some weeks. When there is no activity after X weeks, the listings may be deleted. I will sort it out when I get back from holiday.

Best,
Peter

CINEMA RETRO gives the book a rave review in the current issue (Claudia Cardinale and THE PROFESSIONALS on the cover!)

Congrats to you.
Looking forward to reading this. Someday.

I've been savoring it in small bits and pieces, last night I made it to chapter 10.
I haven't flipped ahead to spoil it.

Anyway it's intriguing reading the various accounts of the premature blowing of the bridge.

I'm hoping somebody took a still of the first bridge just before it was detonated.  According to accounts it was substantially stronger, the mention of trucks driving back and forth across it suggests it was more than just an elaborate prop. Though I've never really checked on the film that closely between the two, you may be able to see some differences.
