Hope they take the backers for a lunch somewhere nice.  GW shares have gone through the roof the last 3 years. :D

I don’t think Livingstone & Jackson still own much in the way of shares, they sold out years ago.  GW was taken over by Citadel Miniatures back in 1991.

Glad to see they have nearly doubled the target.  You would have to hope you would be first for 'Dinner at a top Italian Restaurant in London with Ian, Steve and Jamie' as I imagine they may be getting a bit jaded by the time they are get to number 11. :)

I missed the October 2020 comment with the draft TOC:

The final page count will be 200+ and the plan is to include 200+ photos and images. Although not final, the provisional chapter headings are called:

Chapter 1 - 1966 and All That
Chapter 2 - The Name of the Game
Chapter 3 - The Owl & Weasel
Chapter 4 - Dungeons & Dragons
Chapter 5 - Games Day
Chapter 6 - The Road to Lake Geneva
Chapter 7 - Back to Blighty
Chapter 8 - White Dwarf
Chapter 9 - Dalling Road
Chapter 10 - Citadel Miniatures
Chapter 11 - Independence Day
Chapter 12 - Sunbeam Road
Chapter 13 - A Retail Empire
Chapter 14 - The British Empire Strikes Back
Chapter 15 - Computer Games
Chapter 16 - The Warlock of Firetop Mountain
Chapter 17 - Warhammer
Chapter 18 - All Roads Lead to Nottingham

Hope that helps. Again, thanks everyone for your patience.

I'm glad there's a thread here for this. I backed and have been wondering what's been going on with it.

Ian Livingstone         Ian Livingstone says:
I'm currently working with the editorial team in trying to select and position 200+ photos and images in the book. I've found many photos which have never been seen before, some I'd forgotten all about since they are 35mm slides. Fantastic to see them again, eg there is a great one I took of Steve Jackson UK sitting with Steve Jackson US with them reading each other's book just to add to the usual confusion.

New update from Ian:

13 February 2021: any new updates, Ian---the last one I saw was at the end of November, and sounded like the book might be done soon (going to pre-press)? ......allan

Ian Livingstone replied:
Unbound have indicated a Spring 2022 release. This has in part been caused by logistical problems with printers. Apologies again, but I hope the wait will be worth the while.
