From Entertainment Law Digest:
Film distributor Kathy Morgan International sued Fusion Films and Two Out of Ten Productions, claiming they owe $540,000 for the company’s work as a sales agent for the upcoming movie adaptation of Dean Koontz’s novel, “Odd Thomas.”
I went to the three closing Borders stores in Omaha last night and all three of them had copies of the UK hard cover edition of Breathless on their bargain shelves for just $5.99. Then, they took another 25% off for the going-out-of-business sale. So, if you’ve got a Borders in your area you may want to go take a look.
According to the folks over at twitch, Arrow Video released Tobe Hooper’s The Funhouse on Blu-ray yesterday. Unfortunately (for my budget), it’s currently only available in the UK but is playable in all regions. You can read the review on the twitch Web site and orders it directly from Arrow Video (£21.99) or Amazon.co.uk (£16.99).
I was in a few different Barnes & Noble stores over the weekend and noticed a lot of Dean’s titles in the bargain sections. The prices ranged from $3.98 to $7.98. So, if you’re looking for a bargain head on over to your local B&N or check online and see if you can find any of the following titles:
- A Big Little Life (HC)

- Relentless (HC)
- Twilight Eyes (TPBK)
- Your Heart Belongs to Me (Large Print TPBK)
