So, I told myself that I wasn’t going to get sucked into going to go see Pirates of the Caribbean 4.
But then they did this:
Yup. They really and truly did throw some money at Tim Powers. Which means that the original On Stranger Tides – WHICH IS THE BEST DAMN VOODOO PIRATE ADVENTURE NOVEL EVER WRITTEN – will almost certainly be re-released as the ‘novelization,’ which will put more money in Tim Powers’ pockets, and I hope to God that the man has an agent with the mother-wit to say the magic phrase ‘percentage of the gross,’ because while there are better things to do with one’s money than to give some of it to Tim Powers, the list is not exhaustive.
So. Yeah, yeah, I kind of have to go see this movie now.
