Publishing Has Devoured Itself: Author Signs Deal For A Parody Of 'Twilight' Knockoff, 'Fifty Shades of Grey'
Like the mighty ouroboros, the publishing industry has devoured itself.
So, Fifty Shades of Grey. It's a BDSM erotica book by E.L. James, which started as Twilight fan-fiction, before becoming a small-press phenomenon. Random House paid seven figures to buy the book and its two sequels. The movie rights have been bought by Universal Studios and Focus Films.
Fifty Shames of Earl Gray. A parody of a copy of a crappy novel. If literature were quantum physics, something would have just exploded.
