New ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ Manuscript Stolen
E.L. James’ latest novel Grey—a retelling of Fifty Shades from Christian Grey’s perspective—has been stolen, reports The Daily Mail. James was spurred on to write the novel by growing fan interest for a story providing insight into the infamous Grey’s troubled background.
Word surfaced that the manuscript went missing this past Monday. In collaboration with Penguin Randomhouse, the police are investigating the theft. Originally due for publication on June 18th (AKA Christian Grey’s birthday), it is feared that the thieves plan to release pirated versions of the novel, or release excerpts to media outlets.
Worry not, Grey readers. Despite the theft, the publisher has confirmed plans of publication are still moving forward.
