I finally convinced my publisher to put a new, more KISS-like cover on my Encyclopedia of KISS, with a Gene Simmons-like silhouette and colors inspired by the cover to Destroyer.
(Scroll down to see the original, more generic cover.)
You can order the book with the new cover ON AMAZON.
Encyclopedia of KISS: Music, Personnel, Events and Related subjects is loaded down with everything you ever wanted to know about KISS, including albums, tours, songs, TV and movie appearances, makeup and non-makeup eras, family members and girlfriends, solo work, influences on the band, replacement members, studio musicians, road crew, books, magazines, comics, toys, video games, merchandise, obscurities, and much more, including photos, bios on each member past and present and a history of the band. Everything is in alphabetical order for your convenience. This is a fun read and comprehensive reference for KISS fans, writers, researchers, trivia mavens, and music buffs. More than 150,000 words.
Here's what the experts are saying about Encyclopedia of KISS:
