The Ultimate Unofficial Madonna Book

Back in 1995, author Matthew Rettenmund took it upon himself to write the ultimate book for Madonna fans titled Encyclopedia Madonnica which, for almost 20 years, has been THE fan-written history book of the life and career of her Madgesty herself. Of course, a lot of things have changed in the past 20 years and Madonna‘s life and career is much different than it was back in 1995. And so, because history demands it, Rettenmund has taken on the task of publishing a 20th anniversary edition of Encyclopedia Madonnica that will be updated and expanded. This time around, Matthew is publishing the book himself and is asking YOU Madonna fans to be a part of the process.

Disney Announces A Sequel To ‘Frozen’ Set For Release Next Year

Buuuuut, it will come in book-form

So we knew that Disney would be interesting in putting out a sequel to their megahit animated movie Frozen but I don’t think anyone expected a sequel to come so quickly … and in this format. The official follow-up to the Frozen movie will be released in book-form in January with a series of more books to follow thruout 2015. While it’s possible (and very likely) that another Frozen animated film will be released sometime in the future, Disney has decided to cash in on the Frozen phenomenon as soon as possible with this new book series.

People Are Not Happy With The 50th Anniversary Cover Of Roald Dahl’s ‘Charlie And The Chocolate Factory’ Book

Too Adult?

For the 50th anniversary of the release of Roald Dahl‘s classic novel Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Penguin Classics decided to release the book with a new cover meant for an adult audience. As soon as the new book cover was revealed, the backlash was almost immediate. As you can see below, the new cover for Charlie and the Chocolate Factory features a very young girl made up to look like an adult woman which many people find sexual in nature. Hmmm. Check out the book cover below and see what YOU think. More »

Anne Rice’s ‘The Vampire Chronicles’ Book Series Will Be Adapted As New Films

Undead

Back in March we learned the happy news that author Anne Rice has decided to resume her Vampire Chronicles book series with the release of a new novel titled Prince Lestat which is set for release later this year. Yesterday, Universal Pictures announced that they have optioned all of the books in The Vampire Chronicles to be adapted into new films. As you may know, Anne‘s first book in the series, Interview with the Vampire, was adapted into a hugely successful film back in 1994 with Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt starring (a really subpar sequel titled Queen of the Damned was released in 2002). 20 years later, Universal feels like its time to reboot the franchise. Even more exciting, Anne‘s son Christopher Rice wrote the screenplay for the Vampire Chronicles book Tale of the Body Thief and Universal purchased the rights to his screenplay! Lots of great news for the Rice family today. More »

A Biography Of Joss Whedon Is On The Way

With a forward by Nathan Filion

Journalist Amy Pascale was tasked with writing a biography of Joss Whedon and as a longtime Whedon fan, I assume she happily took the task to heart. After all her hard work, which included speaking with Joss himself, Joss Whedon: The Biography is almost ready for release. The biography will go on sale this Friday and features a forward written by Whedonverse actor Nathan Filion (who first worked with Joss as the lead on Firefly before he took on cameo roles in Buffy the Vampire Slayer and co-starred in the web-only Dr. Horrible’s Sing Along Blog). Click below to read an excerpt of Filion‘s forward to this Joss Whedon biography and make plans to buy this book when it comes out this week. This book might potentially become the bible of the Whedonverse. More »

Today we learn that plans for Lindsay‘s book are still very much in the works … the only problem is that she needs to find someone to write her book for her (cuz heaven knows the girl cannot write an entire book all on her own).

To which I must respond, L. O. L. More »

George R. R. Martin Is Releasing A Kids Book

Wherein all of the characters are slaughtered, no doubt

Geroge RR Martin may not be any closer to releasing the next book in his Game of Thrones book series A Song of Ice and Fire but that doesn’t mean that he doesn’t have a new book coming out soon. Today we learn that Martin will be releasing a kids book titled The Ice Dragon in October that features characters that live in the world of A Song of Ice and Fire.
