Suzanne Collins Might Not Be Involved In Writing Process For ‘The Hunger Games’ Companion Books
It was announced that Scholastic will release ‘The Hunger Games’ companion books and we had previously reported about it when 3 of the covers for aforementioned companion books were revealed.
As information for the companion books was not posted previously, many wondered of ‘The Hunger Games’ trilogy author, Suzanne Collins, will be participating in the writing process for the content of the books. Authors for these companion books are finally posted on Scholastic, Amazon and BookWeb Singapore by Books Kinokuniya.
“The Hunger Games Tribute Guide” listed Emily Seife as the author. According to BookWeb Singapore, “The Hunger Games Tribute Guide” is available for pre-order and is priced at S$13.70.
Emily Seife is an associate editor at Scholastic according to The Hob. However it appears that Emily Seife joined Scholastic in 2011 so it is currently uncertain if she was involved in production process for ‘The Hunger Games’ trilogy.
Meanwhile, Kate Egan is listed as the author for both “The Hunger Games: Official Illustrated Movie Companion” (pictured below) and “The World of The Hunger Games” (cover not yet released) on BookWeb Singapore.
Kate Egan is a freelancer editor who had edited ‘The Hunger Games’ trilogy. You can read an interview if Kate Egan on ‘The Hunger Games’ trilogy over here.
“The Hunger Games: Official Illustrated Movie Companion” is ready for pre-order on BookWeb Singapore and it is priced at S$ 32.58 while “The World of The Hunger Games” is also ready for pre-order and is priced at S$ 30.86.
“The Hunger Games” movie tie-in novel, “The Hunger Games Tribute Guide” and “The Hunger Games: Official Illustrated Movie Companion” will hit bookstores on February 7, 2012. “The World of The Hunger Games” which the cover is not shown here will be released on March 23, 2012 which is on the same day as the USA release date for “The Hunger Games” movie.
Would you be buying these books even though Suzanne Collins might not be participating in the production process at all?
