On Stranger Tides  
Given my user name, I guess I ought to comment, so here goes:

I'm both a Powers fan and a POTC fan, but I think you can guess which one runs a distant second. So I'm just going to quote Powers on the subject:

"I believe all I can say right now -- God knows why -- is, "Ask the Disney
publicity department." I trust I'll be able to say more very soon."

I suppose that at least confirms that there is actually some sort of deal, as opposed to Disney having (as I read on some movie blog somewhere) "stolen this guy's cheesy puppeteer book". :rolleyes:

But I'm going to wait and hear more from Tim before getting too excited.

I know - unfortunately now I can't find where I read that! It was a comment in response to one of the first stories that appeared on Friday, but now there are hundreds more stories on the subject and it got lost in the crowd.

If you find it, tell us! We must have our cheesy revenge!

Okay, so the exact quote I was thinking of was:

"At worlds end sounded epic and now we get on stranger tides?? A title that not only screams MEH here we go again but its a rip off of a cheesy book about a puppeteer??"

Later in the same thread we get:

"I've never heard of that book before. Is it just some cheap pulp novel? Or worse yet, is it a children's book?"
