New book about the Avalanche

There hasnīt been a lot of book stuff about the Colorado Avalanche hockey. I have three biggest and probably alone publications about the Avs in my collection: a book dedicated to the 2001 Stanley Cup championship, Daterīs Blood Feud about a rivarly against Detroit Red Wings and partly Patrick Royīs biography. I donīt count yearly published media guides that have been always great source for all kind of information and I call them a bible of Avalanche fan.

The situation on the market will change soon. The Avalanche fans will have great opportunity to read something new after years. Denver Postīs sports writers Adrian Dater and Terry Frei are currently working on the book. Main topic? New era of the Avalanche hockey. Eurolanche did exclusive interview with Dater about their upcoming piece. You can bet there will be one big order of books to Europe for the Eurolanche members. You will be notified on time by email of course.

Whose idea was to write a new book about the Avs?

It was both of ours, and we have done business before with the publisher (Taylor Trade) that will do the book, and they liked the idea, so it was decided upon before the season even started.

Why did you decided to do it?

We had a feeling it would be a good story either way, with Patrick Roy's first year coaching the team, and I think it's turned out that we were right.

What topics it will include?

Mostly only the (current) season, but some background on the main players will be in it. It'll just be an inside look at the season and how it turned out.

Have you started work on that yet?

We've already started yes.

Do you know yet how many pages approximately it will have and which size format?

Hardcover, probably between 350-400 pages.

When it will be available for the fans?

This fall, probably September or October.

Do you believe the pre-title Save by Roy will be the official title of the book?

I think so, yes.

Have you idea how the cover will look like?

No, no idea yet, but I'm sure Roy will be the main guy featured.

Coincidentally I was going to post about this new book yesterday but didn't know which thread to put it in. Should be a great read.

Thanks for posting the interview. I'm real curious what this book is going to entail. I'd love to learn more about our players and read some behind the scenes info, I'm just a bit skeptical there will be anything in there I don't already know.

So is Dater a good writer? Do you guys recommend getting his Blood Feud book from amazon?

Yeah it's a good read for all the little behind the scenes stories.

Yeah Blood Feud is great. And pretty much everything Frei has written is top notch. "77" is my favorite of his. Really looking forward to this.

I must be the only avs fan that thinks blood feud sucks. If you're looking for homer material you're not getting it in blood feud. You would've guessed that Dater was a red wings fan.

You do him a favor by promoting his book, and he gives a bunch of short answers that sound like you're annoying him?
