1973 TO 1983

Coming Soon


MAGIC - KISS KRONICLES 1973 TO 1983  is a book that will provide a day-by-day,

detailed look at KISS’ career during the original make-up years from 1973 to 1983. 


MAGIC will give the reader an inside look at their photo sessions, recording sessions, rehearsals, concerts, interviews, TV appearances, band meetings, personal activities, and more.

Estimated at 500+ full-color pages, hundreds of newly discovered facts will be revealed and many mysteries will be solved. And believe us when we say "never before seen" photos. Photographers and fans from all over the world have allowed MAGIC to publish photos no one has ever seen! 

This is the book you have been waiting for. If you've got great expectations, 

MAGIC - KISS KRONICLES 1973 TO 1983  is the book for you!

BOOK UPDATE: October 16, 2020

MAGIC - KISS KRONICLES 1973 TO 1983 WILL be a reality in 2021!


Just because it’s not done yet doesn’t mean it’s over. Progress continues on MAGIC and I’m not stopping until it’s done. I do apologize for not accurately estimating the time required to complete it and I understand your frustration. I, too, get frustrated when unexpected events interrupt my work time for this book. Regardless, I continue to move forward and make progress every day.

I am hopeful that it will only take until the beginning of April to get everything done. I’ve had to make a lot of revisions in order to get everything to fit. As it stands now, MAGIC will likely be just over 600 pages (original estimate was 550 pages). There is just so much material and information and it’s incredibly difficult to fit it all in and maintain the vision of a balance between text and photos. For some perspective, please consider that there are approximately 40,000 pages of documents (newspaper/magazine articles, books, memos, itineraries, promotional material) and 100,000 images available to tell the most complete story possible. To say the least, it’s a lot. Once everything’s done and the files are sent to the printer it should take about 5 weeks before the printer ships the finished product to me. That means shipping likely will begin in late May.

Refunds have been issued in the order they were placed but I do not have the funds available to refund everyone. I don’t know when I will be able to complete the remaining refund requests but as soon as I do I will post an update and contact you directly.

Thank you to those who continue to support this project. As I’ve said before, your patience and faith will be rewarded.

Onward and Upward,

Ros Radley
