Released at Last

The book was released today - a couple of weeks or so ahead of schedule.

It would be nice to think that, 2 years and 4 months on, my task has been accomplished. Indeed, you might very well think that my work is now done. There is at last a first book available on Ian and my goal to do something tangible to honour his memory and give people a sense of how highly he was regarded both as an actor and as a person and what he meant to so many, has been achieved.

However, there is still a lot to be done to promote the book and make people aware that it is out there. I'll certainly try my best to succeed.

As Ian said to me in our first exchange of letters in January 1994, 'Onwards and Upwards!'


  1. Ahead of time! Wonderful! Take at least a few moments to bask in the joy and satisfaction of a job well done, and then face the next part of the task -- and I wish you well with all that lies ahead. For now, I pat you on the back in congratulation! Good for you!

  2. Many thanks - now I just need to focus on letting people know about it.
