  • Second Edition of "Lifting Shadows" now available to pre-order!

    The second edition of the Dream Theater biography, Lifting Shadows, is now available to pre-order!

    Full details of this updated book can be found at www.liftingshadows.com

    For the second edition of Lifting Shadows, I've tracked down and interviewed even more people involved in the Dream Theater story. The text has also been thoroughly revised and updated. So there's also a detailed look at the making of the Black Clouds & Silver Linings album, which includes all new interviews with the band. Plus I've also added an appendix which covers the numerous side projects, such as Liquid Tension Experiment, Transatlantic, OSI, G3 and other solo albums, with interviews with the likes of Neal Morse, Jim Matheos, Tony Levin and the DT guys. This is edition is also around 40% longer than the original.

    As you might know, the original, two book, one CD special edition set has now completed sold out. As that was sold strictly on the basis that it was a limited print run, the publishers have rightly decided not to reissue that. They are however producing a new limited edition version as there are people who want something more special than just a hardback. So there are two versions of the book on sale.

    The Classic Edition of the book is a standard hardback version. If you imagine the "Words" book of the first edition, expanded by 40%, with 8 pages of colour photos.

    The second of these is the Limited Edition book, which is bound in real leather. This contains the same text as the Classic Edition and also has 8 pages of colour photos. The print run is limited to 2000 copies and each copy is hand signed by myself.

    The books are being published by Essential Works who printed the first edition of the book. All sales of the book will also be made via their website.

    The book is priced as follows:

    Classic Edition:

    This retails at $28.95 in the US, £17.99 in the UK and EU plus shipping. Those of you who bought the first edition will shortly be receiving an email from Essential Works offering you a 25% discount off the retail price as a "thank you" for your support in getting the first edition off the ground. But even if you did not buy the first edition, for a limited time, those of you pre-ordering will be entitled to a discount of 15% off the retail price.

    Limited Edition:

    This version retails at £30 in the UK and EU, and $50 in the US plus shipping. Due to the high production costs, low production run and the price already being kept as low as possible, there will be no discount available for this version of the book.

    Full details of all the ordering process, details of shipping charges, a list of FAQ and other details on the book can be found at www.liftingshadows.com
