I am publishing a book with over fifty never-before-seen photos of Freddie Mercury's time in New York City (1981 to 1983) and in London visits (1986-1991). Also, I have written chapters that recount Freddie, the down-to-earth, generous and caring man enjoying himself with his close American friends (of eleven years) right up to his unfortunate death. In his real life, Freddie enjoyed fitting in and just being "one of the boys" Early 1980's New York provided this for him.
The book is finished and has just been started with the publication process.  Publishing this book as a "coffee table book" will cost a good amount of money.
 A free, autographed copy by the authors  (I have a co-author, Lee, who was also a major part of our group of close friends in New York and beyond as well as the photographer) will be provided for any donation over $49.99.

The title of the book is, "Freddie Mercury in New York - Don't Stop Us Now!"

I thank any donators in advance who might want to help support this book. YOU are the Champions!

Hello all donors and watchers,
Lee and I have finished about 85% with the photo design of the book. Lee is going to Ireland in two days to attend a friend's wedding at Waterford Castle. He will be back on Aug. 18, and we will finish up the last 15% ASAP. Thank you all for your constant support and interest in the book. We feel it will be a beautiful and lasting tribute to our friend. We believe Freddie is watching, approving and guiding our efforts, from above. We love you all!
Best Wishes,
Thor and Lee

Lee and I have an intense meeting at his home in Palm Springs on Aug 2nd - 4th. We will be making final preparations for our photographs to be placed among the seventeen vignettes (chapters) of the book, as well as, the cover photo and design, collages of certain photos and which photos to enlarge for half pages or perhaps even a few full pages. I will let you all know when this second stage has been completed. It's moving along and we are so excited!
