GORDON SPICE BIOGRAPHY NOW AVAILABLE.

Hi everyone, I thought I had lost touch with Gordy after all this time. But, out of the blue, this morning I recieved an e-mail. In it he tells me he has had cancer, and whilst going through this he set to and completed his biography.
Should be terrific reading. Until I am told by the Moderators that I can give details of the book and the price and where it can be obtained, anyone interested please pm me.
Thanks, guys.
Gerry.

Written by the great and respected Jeremy Walton as far as I'm aware, so it should be entertaining and full of genuine information...

Signed Copy Anyone?

Gordy tells me that if anyone lives close to Old Windsor, and his home, he will sell them a copy from his own stock, and will sign it with any suitable message. But you will have to collect from Gordy himself. The cost will be just £15.!
pm me for details of where to collect from.
Gerry.

Gerry, your inbox won't accept any PM's as it's apparently full! Obviously a popular book!

My copy of Life of Spice arrived on Tuesday, it looks an excellent read, with lots of interesting photographs too. (I just wish I had the time to read it...)

I'm slowly reading mine (don't want to rush through and finish it too quickly), and it really is an entertaining read.
Lots of things I'd forgotten about, and others I knew nothing about.
Loads of really good photographs as well for us nostalgia fanatics!

Yep read it. It was fun reading about the non pc things like HIAWS (you'll have to read about it). Some of the names mentioned appear on 10s too. I'd completely forgotten two of his Group C championships.

Overall an excellent read.
