The extended print version of Mark Lewisohn's “Tune In: The Beatles: All These Years, Volume 1,” which is currently sold out, will become available again in the future, the author told Beatles Examiner.
“In the UK, Little, Brown have sold out two print runs, describing this as ‘phenomenal’ and a landmark event in publishing,” he said. “They will reprint at some future time, but at this moment I’m not sure when that’ll be.”
On the other hand, the e-book version of the expanded edition (available in two separate files (part one and part two) remains available though only in the UK, and it's still unavailable to U.S. buyers. He said he had wanted the expanded version to be available in the U.S.
“Crown Archetype declined to publish the extended edition of 'Tune In' in book form,” he said. “I got the impression they didn’t think there was enough of a market for it in the U.S. They had some interest in issuing an e-book, but couldn’t agree (on) contractual terms. And so, to my deep regret and disappointment, there seems no prospect of a U.S. issue at present.”
