Novelization Scare
Steven G. Orr

To those of you bemoaning the rumored "novelization" of Jackson's movie version of LOTR; take heart, the End of the World is not as imminent as you think. The plan appears to be to issue an edition of LOTR with movie tie-ins, not an entirely new version of the story based on the movie. (ie, the covers may have pictures of the movie characters or still shots of the filmed landscapes, but the text would be the same that we've all come to love).
