    chrissiddall got a reaction from Muad'Dib in Alien vs. Aliens   
    It really is (it matches up with the Varese Sarabande Deluxe OST).  I used scans of James's manuscript to make it (fully copyright licensed).  Next release (going to the printers imminently) is Michael Kamen's "The Iron Giant", then I'm doing "Independence Day".  Busy busy!!!

    Hi, sorry for the slow response to the recent posts on this thread.  I've had my head down editing and proofreading The Iron Giant, which is coming along very nicely (see below)!
    You're right about having access to the original manuscript, and also about podium changes.  I did try to catch everything but if you have any specifics you want to let me know about, please drop me a PM and I'll review them for any future reprints.
     
    With regard to the Engine Room sound in 9m1 it is there, but it's just a low rumble.
     
    With regards to shipping prices, both Tim at Omni Music Publishing and myself are well aware of that being a deciding factor for some, though the potential "solutions" aren't really that great either.  It's unfortunate that a combination of the book size, paper weight and retail value (for import tax if it is charged where you are) can lead to a high total price.  Neither of us add anything to the shipping price, you're paying what it costs and unfortunately that may mean a test of how much you want the book.  Both of us have worked hard to find solutions that keep the costs as low as possible.
    The alternatives of printing or shipping stock overseas and storing/fulfilling "local" orders from these locations would still incur a cost to us that we would have to pass along to you.  It might be different if we were selling in the kind of volumes that big online retailers do, that we could absorb that cost, but this is a very niche market and we are essentially "boutique" publishers.
     
    Finally, with regards to publishing Star Wars, it'd be a dream, but publishing full scores by John Williams is simply off the table at the moment due to licensing restrictions.  That's true of a few specific composers and specific film franchises.  Thankfully there are enough other interesting, beautiful and exciting scores out there to keep the like of Tim and I busy for a very long time!  Personally, I have The Iron Giant and Independence Day coming over the Spring/Summer, with other titles that I'm not ready to announce yet lined up right through to the end of 2022.

    The rumours are true! During our live stream tonight a teaser was indeed dropped!   Whilst we're currently tightening the last few nuts and bolts and polishing The Iron Giant to a mirror shine, production on "Book 3" will be following hot on his heels as we attempt to keep to a gruelling schedule and target release date.   Whatever happens, we will not go quietly into the night!   https://youtu.be/JGVcdQbjAo4

    Hey great to see a thread here about this, thanks @BrotherSound!
     
    In answer to a few queries here:
     
    Alien and Alien 3 are on my to do list "one day". I need something lighter between now and then! 
     
    Yes it is fully licensed, and I am aware of the headaches. I am waiting on 6 more licenses right now which have been in progress for over a year. I've not given up on them yet since I had one approved after exactly a year and a day. They just take that long to hammer out! 
     
    Apollo 13 launch was great to work on but may well contain a few bum notes. I was under the 50th anniversary deadline and didn't do a full cross check against the recording. Feel free to point out anything you spot and I'll fix it up! 
     
    I'm based in the UK, so Europeans may rejoice at slightly reduced shipping charges vs. some of the other full scores that are available. Know though that all we do is pass on the actual costs to ship, and we try really hard to find the best options. 
     
    Any other questions feel free to ask!
     
    Oh I forgot. The cue names in the book are to sync with the recording so it's easier to know what you're following along with. As mentioned, there are none on the original score sheets, only cue numbers.

    This year we mark the 85th birthday of John Williams. Directed by Mike Wood BEM, the orchestra will celebrate this event with an exciting series of pieces from the many acclaimed film scores that he composed during his life. The programme has been expertly planned to showcase a wide spectrum of musical styles and emotions, from the tear jerking Schindler’s List ‘I Could Have Done More’ to the magical Flight to Neverland from Hook, and the perhaps less well-known jaunty theme from The Terminal. Fans of the Star Wars films are in for a treat too. This programme will appeal to all ages. Accompanied children are free.
     
    Tickets are £14 on the door or £12 for tickets purchased in advance. Accompanied under 16’s free (ticket required). Purchase from the Burgess Hill Help Point, or call 01444 232067, or buy your ticket quickly and easily online at http://www.bhso.org.uk/box-office/.
