Announcing: The Godzilla Novelization Project!

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 may even 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 , I have completed the first two chapters of my adaptation of the original Godzilla from 1954 and Godzilla vs. Hedorah, as well as the Prologue to All Monsters Attack (A.K.A. Godzilla's Revenge), the Prologue to 1974's Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla and Godzilla vs. Megalon, and the first half of a novella entitled Godzilla, King of the Monsters! - The Steve Martin Report. (Follow the links 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!
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!
