It’s a Tie-in World

News about the IAMTW’s Scribe Awards has already started to show up around the web. The folks at Galleycat can’t escape tie-ins lately.

All of a sudden, it seems, tie-in books are everywhere. OAKDALE
CONFIDENTIAL, the mystery novel written to tie in with As the World
Turns’ 50th anniversary, spends its third consecutive week on the NYT
bestseller lists. A new organization for tie-in writers has announced its own awards.
And Hyperion, after doing pretty well with THE DIARY OF ELLEN RIMBAUER
(a prequel to the 2002 miniseries RED ROSE) and THE KILLING CLUB (a
mystery written by a character from ONE LIFE TO LIVE) has just released BAD TWIN by "Gary Troup" – a character who died before LOST began airing.

Incidentally, OAKDALE CONFIDENTIAL is written by one of our talented IAMTW members. If you want to find out who that is, you’ll have to read the latest issue of Mystery Scene.

  1. actually, gary troup did not die before lost began airing, he was the guy who got sucked into the jet engine during the first act of the pilot…

  2. I’ve only seen the first season of “Lost” on DVD (no cable access, that’s why), but knowing that made me inexplicably happy.
    You can take the TV out of the geek, but you can’t take the geek out of the TV.
