- Breaking news: a new interesting book is being prepared in Russia... it's
an almanac, the anthology of literature portraits of our great
contemporaries where the authors are classics of the modern world
literature and the "heroes" are celebrated, talented and distinguished
people whose names already belong to the History. The core of the project
is following: one of the greatest authors of the modern literature writes
an essay about the most distinguished people of our time. Both the writer
and the character of the book sign each page of the essay, i.e. they put
1,000 authentic autographs on the special sheets that will be attached to
the book "The Autograph of the Century". The first volume of the book will
include 25 essays written by 5 authors. Why is this Heep-related? Ken
Hensley will be one of the refered characters!! (thanks to Alexander
Kolesnikov for the info)
