Announcing: The Godzilla Novelization Project!

Announcing: The Godzilla Novelization Project!

Danzilla93

Mar-03-2018 8:47 PM

Greetings, G-Fans!

Longtime Scified member/contributor Danzilla here, and I'm excited to announce a project that I hope you guys will be interested in...

Introducing... The Godzilla Novelization Project!

The GNP (because every project needs a (hopefully) awesome abbreviation!) is an initiative on my part to, eventually and over time, create full novelizations of EVERY Godzilla film, and share them, completely free, with you, the fans.  This is obviously something I could never make money doing; it is simply a passion project, not endorsed, approved, or (currently) on the radar of Toho Co. Ltd. These books could never be published in print without Toho’s approval, and therefore they will be presented online, free of charge, to any end every fan who wants to read them.

Books will be uploaded one (or possibly more) chapter(s) at a time, and there will be multiple books being worked on at the same time. The website linked above will be the archive for these books, as well as the place for updates regarding the project.

Currently, this is what I have done:

- The first two chapters of my adaptation of the original Godzilla from 1954

- The first chapter of King Kong vs. Godzilla

- The first two chapters of Godzilla vs. Hedorah

- The Prologue to All Monsters Attack (A.K.A. Godzilla's Revenge)

- The Prologue to 1974's Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla

- The Prologue to Godzilla vs. Megalon

- A Novella entitled Godzilla, King of the Monsters! - The Steve Martin Report.  

(Follow the links above to give them a read!)

For those who are interested in following this insane project, please feel free to follow me on Facebook and other social media platforms!

Follow the GNP on Facebook!

Tweet at me on Twitter!

Or shoot the project an email!

In addition, here is a link to my Patreon page.  Any money donated to this page by my readers will enable me to work less hours at my jobs on a given day or days, allowing me to write during that time and provide you with your content faster.  In addition, more donations will allow me to craft rewards for those who would sacrifice their hard earned money.  I do have rewards currently in place that range from recognition on the site and early access to chapters and updates, to having your name inserted into a book in progress as a previously unnamed character!  Check out the Patreon page for more details.

I'd like to thank you all for taking the time to read this, and for your hopeful support of this endeavor. It is truly exciting to be working on this, and I hope that the coming stories will remind you of just how much Godzilla means to you. No matter who you all are, we are all united by our common love and enjoyment of this incredible and awesome character, and while my novelizations might tell the stories you already know, I hope they will present them in a way that allows you to look at your favorite films with fresh eyes. Most of all, I hope you have fun.

So, let the fun begin! Long live the King, baby!

I've been really flattered to see the amount of referrals the GNP site is getting from this page, and I thank all of you!  Hopefully you've enjoyed what you've read so far!

I have a new prologue up now for the 1974 classic Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla!  Its a short one, but hopefully it sets the stage for the 70's insanity to come!

Check it out here!

To be honest, at least doing this out of passion is better than not doing it at all. Looking forward to it and keep up the good work.

Very cool, to be honest. I'd love to do this myself since some of these movies would translate perfectly to novels, or even comics/graphic novels. Would be super fun to adapt these to a different medium. 

I do stuff. A lot of stuff. And make a lot of enemies doing it.

Thanks for the continued support!  Keep spreading the word if you know someone who you think would enjoy reading these novelizations!  Also...

UPDATE!

I'm super excited to share the GNP's newest project: a novella in two parts chronicling the attack of Godzilla upon Tokyo… as related by United World News’ brightest reporter…

Its Godzilla, King of the Monsters! - The Steve Martin Report!

Essentially, The Steve Martin Report is a first-person recounting of the events of Terry Morse’s 1956 “Americanization” of the original Godzilla, told in the form of a written report by the character of Martin, as played so memorably by the late, great Raymond Burr.  The novella is presented as a sort of “in-universe artifact”, a final word report prepared by Steve for his boss in Chicago.

Part 2 is nearly completed, so stay tuned for the rest soon!  Until then, follow the link above to read the synopsis and Part 1!

Today, March 17th, marks the 45th anniversary of Godzilla vs. Megalon!  To celebrate, I have published the prologue to the GNP's novelization of the movie!  Consider it a birthday gift to a film I have loved since childhood.

Hey, quick question. So I know that here you said that you are creating "full novelizations of EVERY Godzilla film". But my question is, does that include the 1998 and 2014 films, or not?

Danzilla93

Apr-26-2018 11:35 AM

^Good question!  I actually will not be tackling those films, as English language novelizations of both films already exist, officially published to coincide with each film's respective theatrical release.  They can still be found easily online, as well.  For the most part, the GNP will focus on bringing fans novelizations to films that don't have English novelizations already.

That said, I'd LOVE to one day tackle some stories from those films' universes, such as adapting episodes of the 1998 GODZILLA: The Series into short stories or novellas.  I think that would be fun, and an excuse to do some writing in the continuities of the Hollywood films.

Thanks for the question and for your support! :)

You're welcome for the question. And btw, pretty sure only the 2014 version got a novelization, and even then, pretty sure it was a "prequel" (It's in quotes because it's not really a prequel.). Unless there is a link to where both of these can be found, pretty sure it's just the 2014 that has one.

GODZILLA: The Novelization by Stephen Molstad.  Published in 1998.

GODZILLA: The Junior Novelization by H.P. Gilmour.  Published in 1998.

Godzilla: The Official Movie Novelization by Greg Cox.  Published in 2014.

 

These three gentlemen have saved me three books-worth of work! ;)

^My pleasure!  They're all pretty good reads, too!  I think I read the Godzilla 98' junior novelization cover to cover like 3 times as a kid. ;)

If I'm being honest, when I read the title of "GODZILLA: The Junior Novelization", I honestly thought it was a book for Godzilla the Series. But then I remembered it wasn't. Lol.
