Nick Mamatas on GiangregorioAugust 19, 2009
Author Nick Mamatas posted on his blog a bit about Giangregorio’s unauthorized Dawn of the Dead sequel and his clash with author John Skipp. He also posts a bit about Giangregorio’s editing complaints against Permuted Press:
Ooh ooh, though he wishes copyright would vanish he seems to have a problem with his publisher inserting “rape scenes” into his books (and indeed, there is no reason why he shouldn’t have a problem with such a thing). Perhaps though his editor was just hoping that some Hollywood producers were looking for an good ol’fashioned zombie rape movie idea. You know, for kids! (Or maybe the rape really was always in the book.)
I’ll post more about Giangregorio’s fight with Permuted Press when I have time to dissect it.
