Looks like we’ll be getting more stories from [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Bob Dylan[/lastfm].

Crain’s New York reports  that according to according to several industry insiders, Dylan’s literary agent, Andrew Wylie,  has another book deal with Simon & Schuster.  Simon & Schuster published the Dylan’s  2004 Chronicles: Volume One.

The new deal is for six books and Wylie was reportedly seeking eight-figures.

In 2006 Dylan discussed ideas for a Chronicles: Volume Two with Rolling Stone:

“I think I can go back to the Blonde on Blonde album — that’s probably about as far back as I can go on the next book,” he said. “Then I’ll probably go forward. I thought of an interesting time. I made this record, Under the Red Sky, with Don Was, but at the same time I was also doing the [second] Wilburys record. I don’t know how it happened that I got into both albums at the same time. I worked with George [Harrison] and Jeff [Lynne] during the day — everything had to be done in one day, the track and the song had to be written in one day, and then I’d go down and see Don Was, and I felt like I was walking into a wall. He’d have a different band for me to play with every day, a lot of all-stars, for no particular purpose. Back then I wasn’t bringing anything at all into the studio, I was completely disillusioned.”
