GUEST INTERVIEW Gilbert Colon talks with Bestselling Author - Greg Cox

"GC: Joe Queenan, in his Guardian article “Read ‘em and weep,” singles you out. He writes, “Novelisations, so it is rumoured, often contain supplementary material that make it easier to understand the film on which it is based. … Not until I read Underworld: Rise of the Lycans – The Novelisation, by Greg Cox, did [elements of the film] become clear.” How much freedom to add your own material were you given by Warner Bros.? Did they allow you more or less than others? Cox: Well, I’m glad I helped Queenan fully appreciate Underworld: Rise of the Lycans – The Novelisation! Although it may just be that books, because you can read them at your own pace, and go back and reread key passages if necessary, can sometimes be a little easier to follow than a fast-paced action movie. Plus, it’s easier to squeeze a few extra paragraphs of exposition into a 300-page book than a two-hour movie" 4 out of 5 http://www.sfsignal.com/archives/2012/12/guest-interview-gilbert-colon-talks-with-bestselling-author-greg-cox/
