I'm sure we'll have some more information before the book is released, to warm us up and pump up presales

This book also sort of evens out the field for the creators. Lynch got to make FWWM exactly as he saw fit and now Frost has this book.

Although I would guess some of the creative ideas and narrative for the book also come from Lynch since this is being done in tandem with the new season?

Great cover! Pre-ordered and waiting.
This is - excuse me - a damn fine cup of coffee.

I don't think all of this talk about going back in to the town's history is far off. Frost had planned such a novel many years ago (see his old Wrapped in Plastic interviews). I remember him talking about getting deep into ancient times and how the formation of the mountains had an effect on the town. I imagine some of those ideas, in an evolved form, will show up in the new book.

So fired up for this...

Interesting. I remember 2-3 years ago, before the announcement of "season 3", there was a discussion on if TP were to return - how could/would/should they do it. Back then, I had a "vision", that the best and maybe only way was to go way back in time - when the first settlers started buliding the town - including stories of native americans, the presence in the woods, Ghostwood, Glastonbury Grove and introducing familiar names as Palmer, Horne, Truman, Hayward etc. So I really hope some elements in the book will go in that direction.

I'm guessing Lynch had far more input on this venture than Frost did with FWWM.

The old "Access Guide" that came out when the original series was on included bits of the history of the town as well as the history of prominent families (Palmers, Hornes, Packards). It also had lots of photos and illustrations. I wonder if this will be a vastly expanded version of that, but with a plot.

I was just thinking the same thing. I think I only read the guide once, maybe it's time to revisit that book.
It's possible Frost expanded a lot of the stuff he wrote there.

I think that book was largely by Peyton/Engels and random freelancers. It was very tongue-in-cheek; I doubt it reflected much of Frost & Lynch's plan. But we shall see.

The other two books have been contradicted by Fire Walk With Me, now it's the access guide's turn

It will.


Finally available to pre-order on Amazon UK as well now and for only £16.99. That's even cheaper than on the American site!

Interesting that the UK version of the book seems to have an additional 52 pages... Amazon.com lists the book as having 304 pages whilst Amazon.co.uk lists it as having 356...

Probably just a typo on Amazon's part.
