Sault Ste. Marie writer George Case is looking forward to tomorrow's official release of another book.

"Led Zeppelin FAQ: All That's Left to Know About the Greatest Hard Rock Band of All Time" is being published by U.S.-based Backbeat Books.

Readers will be able to purchase copies through Amazon or the Canadian Chapters/Coles chain.

Backbeat describes the work as an "exhaustive and insightful reference text" in which the writer "details the key names, dates, figures, and features of one of the biggest and most mythologized rock-and-roll groups of all time: Led Zeppelin."

Case addresses several puzzles about the group, including the meaning of its enigmatic album covers and the truth about leader Jimmy Page's involvement with the occult.

Also explored are the reasons behind the endurance of Led Zeppelin's music and the growth of the band's mystique after officially disbanding.

Case tells us that he has also just released a book of social and political criticism.

"Dumbing Down Dissent: Fads and Fallacies in Political Discourse" (2011) is available exclusively through Amazon.com.

Case has penned several earlier books.

The imagined history of the world is the theme of "Silence Descends: The End of the Information Age, 2000-2500" (1997).

"Arcadia Borealis: Childhood and Youth in Northern Ontario" (2008) is a personal memoir. The local writer also produced the award-winning "Jimmy Page: Magus, Musician, Man: An Unauthorized Biography" (2007) and "Out of Our Heads: Rock 'n' Roll Before the Drugs Wore Off" (2010).
