ABBA - The Backstage Stories (2018 edition)

Published October 29, 2017

The 2014 book ABBA - The Backstage Stories (known under a myriad of different titles outside Sweden) will be published in a more basic edition in March 2018. I co-wrote the original edition, but haven't had any involvement in this new book.

Main author Ingmarie Halling tells me that it will be more like a "normal" book, without the slipcase. The envelopes containing various vintage documents are gone, but those documents will now be presented on regular book pages instead. There will also be a number of new pictures, mainly from ABBA The Museum, plus a little more text about the museum.

In tandem with this, Carlton Books will publish a similar English-language edition of the book.

The Swedish book is already listed in some online shops, such as Adlibris, although it's not available for pre-order:

Adlibris also lists Carlton's English-language edition:

Finally, this UK shop lists the English edition as available for pre-order:

This page will be updated when I have more info.
