Movie Novelizations and other Movie Tie-ins.

Books, Movies


Bus Stop, by William Inge, who’s from my hometown of Independence, KS. He also wrote Picnic, Splendor in the Grass, The Dark at the Top of the Stairs, and Come Back, Little Sheba. He, along with Tennessee Williams and Arthur Miller, mostly wrote overly dramatic, depressing stories involving sexual repression. This one is actually the play (or screenplay) not a novel. Bantam 1518, 1956. Cover photo by Milton Greene.


The Misfits by Arthur Miller. Dell F115, 1961. Arthur Miller wrote Death of a Salesman and The Crucible. He was also married to Marilyn Monroe, lucky slob.


Batman, novelization by Craig Shaw Gardner from the screenplay by Samm Hamm and Warren Skaaren, from the story by Sam Hamm, from the character created by Bob Kane. Whew. Warner books, 1989.


The Ugly American by William J. Lederer and Eugene Burdick. Crest book d365, 1958. This was a book before a movie or play, so technically it isn’t a novelization, but a movieization. No indication who the cover artist is.


Murder by Death, novel by H. R. F. Keating based on the screenplay by Neil Simon. Star books, 1976. Autographed by Neil Simon! Neil Simon wrote The Odd Couple, Barefoot in the Park, The Goodbye Girl, The Sunshine Boys, Biloxi Blues, Max Dugan Returns, Seems Like Old Times, The Cheap Detective, The Prisoner of Second Avenue, and a few other things you may recognize. Keating has written quite a bit of crime fiction.
