Has anyone seen the link on the main page for Chronicles Volume 2 (release date: December 31st 2019)?
Would be great! Is this the first time we're hearing about this?

It's only been listed on Book Depository, I wouldn't entirely trust it.

Strange that it's listed to be released on 31 December, 2019 and yet is already confirmed to be 256 pages long.

Bob was hoping to release it earlier but with Time Magazine going by the wayside he'll have less material to draw from for his memoirs.

I want to know if it's true, right? I never heard of this news. I hear from you for the first time.

If this were to be true, and following the "strange" and highly irritating fragmented structure of vol.1, I wonder which periods he would cover.
My guess is something like:
1. Basement tapes
2. Street legal/Slow train coming
3. Knocked out loaded
4. Together through life

No mid sixties or mid 70s this time around either, sorry folks

Doesn't a new release date pop up every other year?

It's hard to trust this, mainly because the release date is so far away. I mean, they know it's 256 pages - but it'll take them 2 years to design the cover? Is that it? Fake news. Meh...

There is no way Simon & Schuster would release a book like this on December 31 and miss out on the all-important Christmas season. If this book is ever released it will either be well in advance of Christmas or sometime during the spring, ready for summer vacation readers, etc.

Often online stores list obscure release dates for rumored books or albums without any trace of truth. And this is nothing more than that.

The original deal with Simon & Schuster was publicized as a multi book deal. I think seven volumes with some volumes including lyrics or poems. I'd like him to publish some short fiction stories like the ones he did in Chronicles. He's a good writer and draws you into believing these things really happened.

Yeah, unfortunately there's nothing to this. Page has been up for ages; it's a placeholder.

Matter of fact, here we are discussing it last year: viewtopic.php?f=6&t=88968&p=1709827

When any e commerce site adds such a publication date dec 31 2019 or Jan 1 2019 it means
no firm publication date is available .


It's listed on Amazon fr too , but nowhere to be seen on Amazon.com or co.uk

As Jerome mentioned, dates like December 31st are almost always a placeholder date.

Anyway maybe it's on its way.

Good find. If you google the ISBN number from that listing, you get a few hits about Chronicles Volume 2 from other websites. And then I noticed this. So probably a false alarm.
