Spank Gold Volume 5: Spank's Edinburgh Diaries 2001-2008

And now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go on Twitter and use the #edfringe hashtag mercilessly.Well, that's a coincidence, isn't it? The 2010 Edinburgh Festival has just started, and here I am with a new book of reviews covering my Festival visits throughout the Noughties. You'd almost think I planned it that way, or something.

Spank's Edinburgh Diaries Volume Two: 2001-2008 is, of course, the sequel to Spank's Edinburgh Diaries Volume One: 1989-1999. Once again, it's a collection of slightly tweaked reviews from this site, just printed on paper and sold to you for money.

It may not be immediately obvious from the title, but this book covers all of my Edinburgh visits during the 21st century to date. (I found other things to do in 2000, 2003, 2006 and 2009.) To quote from the blurb (full text can be found on the back page of the preview): "We saw shows held in venues as huge as the Edinburgh International Conference Centre, and as small as the screen of a mobile phone. We watched films that lasted mere minutes, and a comedy show that lasted an entire day. And we saw Mervyn Stutter seven bloody times. You can read about it all in this very book."

So: out today, from the author of Monkey Round The World, Spank's LFF Diaries Volume One, Spank's Edinburgh Diaries Volume One and Spank's LFF Diaries Volume Two, comes Spank's Edinburgh Diaries Volume Two. Buy it now. And watch out for Spank's Edinburgh Diaries Volume Three, coming some time in 2020. Assuming we still have books by then, and aren't just absorbing all our information through microchip suppositories or something.
