If all goes according to plan, this October will see the release of my first book, “The Portable Bob” which is a collection of some of my favourite DBAWIS columns and some new, never published stories and articles.

As promised, here are some more excerpts from The Portable Bob, and if you want to, use the comment section below to let me know what columns and stories YOU would like to see reprinted, updated, or elaborated on, AND if there is anything NEW you would like me to write about. Also take a look at the gallery of potential Book Covers at the bottom of the column and let us know which one(s) you like, or suggest a totally different idea. Let your thoughts be known in the comment section below. A few of you will be winning an autographed copy of the tome just ahead of its release. No details to share yet (the Holiday has made it hard to contact those who are in charge of the details), so they will be forthcoming in the near future. Yesterday’s excerpts were mostly about this and that…these are a little more biographical and music-centric. Enjoy.
