Availability of Ned’s Books
Many of Ned’s books are now “out of print” and therefore unavailable, and it is often difficult to keep up to date with the latest situation. This is  
particularly true regarding the books published by the History Press as these often go out of print but then can suddenly become available again if  
re-printed, or issued in a new edition. Regarding the books published by Ned’s own imprint - “Uralia Press” - these books are virtually never reprinted  
and so once “out of print” they stay that way. Ned does have some small stocks of certain books so it is always worth contacting him via this  
website to see if a book can be obtained. Every so often books are produced in completely the wrong quantities which either creates a shortage or  
the opposite - we have to eventually dispose of the surplus! The books published on Black Country Theatres and Cinemas are a good example of  
this and they are currently being “remaindered” to dispose of the surplus - so do contact Ned and find out what price they now command. People  
sometimes report finding second-hand copies of Ned’s books - for example on Ebay - but they are usually sold at a premium price. (That is  
completely out of Ned’s control.)
