There's a treat in store for fans of the Heritage Years this week with the publication of "Have A Good Week... Till Next Week," a collection of biographies of more than fifty stars of British tv wrestling. Street, Pallo, McManus, Saint, Kellett; just about every name you would expect can be found within the paperback and Kindle versions. This book is no lightweight, it's more than 400 pages.



The author is no lightweight either. "Have A Good Week... Till Next Week," has been written by respected journalist and wrestling historian John Lister, who has compiled six years of in-depth biographies from his Fighting Spirit Magazine series into one volume.


Heritage readers will be well aware (through our Bookshelf section) of John's previous work as author of Slamthology, Turning The Tables: The Story Of Extreme Championship Wrestling, Purodyssey: A Tokyo Wrestling Diary and Greetings Grapple Fans. He is now a regular contributor to Fighting Spirit Magazine. John has also written articles for The Guardian, The Sun Online, and Manchester Evening News.


"Have A Good Week Till Next Week" is available now from Amazon


£12.99 in paperback

Thanks for the kind mention.

The image has gone a bit fuzzy somewhere on it's trip through the information super highway to this post, but I hope those of you who were still watching ITV in the final years will enjoy the homage in the lettering and colors.

I should also note a lovely coincidence in that the picture is of course of the publicity for the final British promotion show at the Royal Albert Hall in 1987, and the book was released yesterday on the very day that WWE's "UK division" ran a show there with 17 of the 20 wrestlers on the show being British.

Hollywood is in Worcestershire near to Bromsgrove.  Two of Duran Duran were kids there.

Like the title. When I drafted my screenplay for the Orange Prize in the 1990s, I called it 'Happy Thursday, Friday - See You Saturday' - I don't think they got it :D

Really good resource book.  Just needs a few things ironing out (either put the original publication dates in or else deal with all the references to "this month" etc that have filtered through from the originals) and maybe some photos too and hopefully it can be flogged to a decent publisher and put on sale in Waterstones/Dillons/WHSmith etc.

I'm looking forward to receiving my copy. In my view the best bits of FSM without having to read the rest.

Yes. if they also threw in the non-Greetings pieces they did on Dean Allmark and James Mason that would be perfect.


(Mind you, I'd also happily buy a compilation of Jim Cornette's colums - Really clever funny guy; I love listening to his podcasts on Youtube.)

I bought my copy of this book last week and am really enjoying reading it. It is full of stories and facts, many of which I had not heard before, about the different wrestlers. I highly recommend it.
