Seasons Greetings & An Xmas Present

Seasons Greetings & An Xmas Present
December 22, 2009 Paul Tomkins

Members of the Tomkins Times can download a PDF of my 2007 book, Above Us Only Sky, for free. The book sold out very quickly, as my fastest-selling title to date (it made the top 40 on Amazon’s overall book chart, and no.2 on its Sports & Hobbies chart).

But I withdrew from a reprint after the Klinsmann affair (leading to nine months without any notable income), and since then actual copies of the book have been changing hands for upwards of £100 on eBay. (Alas, I’m not the seller.) The book was written when the fans were generally behind Gillett and Hicks, and this needs to be understood when reading it – it’s obviously pretty clear, but doesn’t hurt repeating.

I’d like to thank everyone who has signed up and contributed to the site in the past few months, to help it exceed my expectations.
