NOW AVAILABLE: "Knight Rider: 30 Years" Book

Post by Joe Huth » Thu Jul 26, 2012 2:03 pm

A little over 9 months ago, I posted about a new Knight Rider book that I was working on with David Bronstein. After countless hours interviewing, compiling, editing and designing, David and I are pleased to announce that Knight Rider: 30 Years of a Lone Crusader and His Talking Car is now available to purchase in paperback form.

The book features over 60 brand new interviews with Knight Rider cast and crew members as well as guest stars - all laid out in an episode format. This book also contains all-new trivia and script-to-screen analysis and a wealth of newly unearthed photos.

For those of you interested in purchasing a hardcover version, it will be released in the next week, so hang in there or, buy both versions! :-D

A huge thank you to Rob Ormondroyd, who designed the awesome cover.

I really hope you all enjoy this new book. It was truly a labor of love.

Available for purchase here:

Hope you guys like it!

To answer your question - "A Shadowy Flight" is a reprint of a 1997 book I wrote...my first on Knight Rider. It's pretty much a guide to all the characters in the series. Check it out!

Mine should be arriving by tomorrow.Now I just have to hire my mail waiter to sit and wait by the intercom.I had it shipped with UPS.I hate the USPS they won't deliver upstairs in apartment buildings anymore regardless if I have 2 elevators.Neither rain,sleet,nor snow shall stay a postal worker from his appointed rounds yet 6 flights with elevators will do the trick.

I received mine yesterday, and I'm absloutely loving it. There are a few points in the epsidoe guide under the trivia which were in legacy, but 95% of the book is brand new! I've only read up to the 3rd episode of season 1 and loving the book already!

It's interesting that some of the interviews are dated back to around April last year, so this book must of been a while in the making!

The only thing that struck me that could of been improved was the music listings. What would of been good was if you could of listed the approx time that particular music track appeared in the episode.

Other than that, brilliant. I look forward to your next book ;) LOL

I would also suggest getting Neil to post a news item on the front page. Maximum publicity!

I should be attending Knight Rider: Reunion in October. Will you be selling your book there? I may as well wait if so. How much will they be there?

Hi Joe: I just got the book yesterday. Tremendous effort that you two have put into it and lots of information! I was curious...do you have more insight on why David Hasseholf didn't want to do Garth again? Furthermore, any insight on stories that were rejected by the studio and/or passed up? Thanks!

The Hasselhoff story- I believe it came down to the simple fact of having to play two different characters in one episode. He simply did not want to do that anymore.

I heard that also...just thought if there were any thoughts of having Garth return, if Hasselhoff hadn't said no.

I just received confirmation that my copy shipped yesterday from Lulu and I can't wait to read it! Nice work, Joe & David, I especially love the new redesigned cover and know this will make a fine addition to my collection. :-)
