I just borrowed Larry Kirwan's Liverpool Fantasy from the library based on a recommendation. Anyone else been reading any Beatle-related novels and have recommendations? To me, it's professional fanfic, and I'll read it if the author's good.

Check out my fan video for Paul's song "Appreciate" at Vimeo or YouTube.

There was this short story / mini-novel called Snodgrass by Ian McLeod. It is an alternative history of Lennon leaving the band on June 63 at Abbey Rd after Martin gave them "How Do You Do It" to record instead of one of their numbers. Lennon quits the band right there and the Beatles beame succesful nonetheless. Lennon now lives off welfare and has become the no-good Aunt Mimi always told him he would. The story has been adapted for TV, I believe.

It's full of little details for connoisseurs.

Enjoy.

I heard about a book just yesterday called 'Eleanor Rigby', obviously inspired by the song. Here it is: http://www.amazon.com/Eleanor-.....anor+rigby

Moving along in our God given ways, safety is sat by the fire/Sanctuary from these feverish smiles, left with a mark on the door.
