Hey all. Just wanted to update you that I've started work on the book in earnest. I've got an outline worked out in terms of how the book will be organized (basically, preface, TOC, introduction, glossary of abbreviations, alphabetical song reviews interspersed with articles about all the official EPs/LPs & fan art, an article about the live show experience/live albums, and a conclusion), and I've written a draft of the introduction.
I expect that I can have this completed by the end of the year, though I'll try to have it finished earlier if I can manage it.
What I'd like from other fans who are interested in contributing is either short blurbs about individual songs (as many as you like), the albums, live shows, and if there are enough people interested, I could even throw in a section like, "What AFI Means to Me" or something for general thoughts and feelings on the band. I'd also be interested in fan art.
I'll also take care of posting the discussion threads (as mentioned earlier in this thread). For the purposes of avoiding clutter, I'll stagger the threads a bit, posting a new one every few days. I'll start with the 10 albums in order, then make the EP thread, then the B-side thread, and finally the cover thread. Sound good?
