Considering the "Visions of Queen" book came out less than a year ago at £30, it's VERY disappointing to see it in the Works so quickly and at such a ridiculously low price.
It just shows you can never tell if you should buy a book on release or wait and see if it gets reduced quickly!

Just picked these up this evening, £9 inc for both hard backs at The Works book store.
Some really great photos in the Queen Illustrated Biography.

I saw this in Fopp for 7 quid. Still seems overpriced.

Each morning I get up and die a little....
Our lives dictated by tradition, superstition, false religion
I feel like no one ever told the truth to me.
About growing up and what a struggle it would be....

Which Queen books are truly worth reading? The only one I've read is Jim Hutton's.

I've read a few over the years.... Ones i liked were:

- Is This The Real Life (Mark Blake) - Lots of detail in this.
- Queen Unseen (Peter Hince)
- Queen - The Ultimate Illustrated History (Phil Sutcliffe)
- 40 Years Of Queen
