Some great news for fans of vintage hard rock who also like their reading: Martin Popoff’s Ye Olde Metal books are now available in electronic editions.  For those not familiar with this series, the Ye Olde Metal books explore the history of hard rock and metal albums, mixing critical analysis with interviews drawn from Popoff’s archives.  Thus far, the series has covered everything from 1968 through 1978.  Previously, these books have only been available in pricey, limited private press editions – but now you can get eBooks of the series for a very reasonable $8.88 per title.  Read on for all the heavy history details from Mr. Popoff himself…

See for more info on these and the 30 or so other books still available as (meta)physical books, many just through my site.

By the way, down to last copies anywhere, for a long time anyway, due to fire at the printing plant, store return copies of the ‘80s reviews book, new copies only of the ‘70s reviews book, ‘00s, consider those gone – please don’t ask, got a handful more of the Voivod. Ye Olde Metal ’76 now out of stock as print book, but still got the others. About 20 of 1977 left.

Another note, Zunior is also the exclusive seller of eBook versions of Gettin’ Tighter: Deep Purple ’68 – ’76, A Castle Full Of Rascals: Deep Purple ’83 – ’09 and Blue Oyster Cult: Secrets Revealed!, each at the low sticker of $8.88.

Finally, Zunior is also (pretty much exclusively) selling eBook versions of my The Top 500 Heavy Metal Songs Of All Time and The Top 500 Heavy Metal Albums Of All Time, also for $8.88, very under-rated, probably my best writing, those two, and stuffed with cool artist quotes. Two of my fave things. They’ve got my Rush book as well.
