Former Metal Maniacs editor Jeff Wagner has announced that he will be writing an authorized biography of the late Type O Negative frontman Peter Steele. As he put it on Facebook, "It will be a comprehensive investigation of his life and music, supported by those who knew him best, written by a fan, for the fans. If you're a fan, have recollections of meeting Peter, have photos, tattoos, or anything, PLEASE message me. This is a total labor of love and one that his followers will hopefully find an indispensable part of the Type O continuum."

There's no information yet about a publisher or a date, but Wagner is actively soliciting information from fans - write to him at [email protected], and visit the Peter Steele Authorized Biography Facebook page!
