Folks, I realize that most of us couldn’t care less about the nonstop flood of angsty idiocy that is the Twilight Saga, which deserves to be called a saga about as much as the flatulent ravings of a drunk about three days from death by liver cirrohsis, but still, we must cover the news in all its forms.
Seems that Maggie Stiefvater has written a “bittersweet romance” between a teenage girl and a boy who turns into a wolf every winter.? Apparently this thing–with the deeply horrendous name of Shiver–has been on bestseller lists for the last half a year, so it’s not exactly out of line to say this thing was going to get turned into a movie whether anyone liked it or not.
Published, not surprisingly, by Scholastic Press, there’s no word on who’ll be pushed to terror hottie status by virtue of showing up in this tripe, but I’m sure it’ll be one of the legions of teen stars waiting for a crack at something like this.
Now if you’ll all excuse me, I’m going to go get blind drunk and hope I don’t trip over something.
