An outfit in the UK have taken the trouble to collect, edit, correct, straighten up, re-evaluate, adjust, make good, translate, tidy up and generally make presentable about 80 of the posts here that took their particular fancy. These are folks who  know not the sweet waft of a half-spoon of hashish over melted dark chocolate, or the importance of an inside late take-off.

Being only two of the three hundred and eighty-five Great Essentials; they, the rest of them, are in ebook number 2. The 383 Great Essentials.

Nevertheless they have produced an ebook that is about the price of a milkshake, and just in case you didn’t know this, now you do.

This post, incidentally, is a promotional and marketing exercise that is supposed to push the product along, so someone can sit on a train and be lulled to sleep reading it. Carriages of someones. Asleep with open Kindles on their laps, iPads, nodded off to tales of rape and pillage and rough nights abroad,

– because this is not a peaceful publication, or an ambient read, there is some blood.

    I bought the book. How could I not? Pete’s one on a very, VERY short list of writers I am aware of that understands SURFING! as both noun and verb… in a far more profound way than I ever could. He is a master.

    I have two comments / critiques:

    1. Why is this not available as a hard bound coffee table memento? Surely there is an immense urban sea-change audience pining for a work like this to display as they warmly scratch their beards while guests filter into their warehouse lofts for a spot of tea. I can’t be the only asshole.

    2. How is this not available on iTunes?

    Pete, your work deserves compensation.
