Queen guitarist to release 3-D book about band

LOS ANGELES

Queen guitarist Brian May is releasing a book of 3-D images capturing the rock band’s history.

May said he will publish the coffee-table book under his own imprint in August. It includes more than 300 photos and a 3-D viewer May designed.

May is a lifelong enthusiast of stereoscopic images and says he’s traveled with a 3-D camera since he was a child.

“Queen in 3-D” features behind-the-scenes photos May took of his bandmates during recording sessions and while on tour. The guitarist and composer also shares personal anecdotes about Freddie Mercury, Roger Taylor and John Deacon.

“Queen in 3-D” is being published by the London Stereoscopic Co., which May launched in 2008 with the aim of “bringing the magic of true stereoscopy to the modern world.”

Dave Eggers to write middle-school novel called ‘The Lifters’

NEW YORK

Dave Eggers’ next literary adventure will be for a younger crowd.

The author has written a fantasy novel for middle-schoolers, “The Lifters,” the first of a two-book deal with Alfred A. Knopf. “The Lifters” is scheduled for March 27, 2018, the publisher told The Associated Press. Featuring illustrations by brothers Eric and Terry Fan, the book tells of a troubled boy named Granite and a girl named Catalina who, through a magic door handle, introduces the boy to a strange new world.

Eggers’ previous books include “A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius” and “What is the What.” The Fan brothers’ credits include Chris Hadfield’s “The Darkest Dark,” Ali Benjamin’s “The Thing About Jellyfish” and a book they wrote and illustrated, “The Night Gardener.”
