Awhile back we reported here that Transformers novelist David Cian (pseudonym for David Russel) would be writing the Transformers Movie Prequel 'Ghosts Of Yesterday'. Well things have since changed. Now author Alan Dean Foster has been tapped to write the Prequel. This has been confirmered by Amazon.com and the publishing company Del Rey. Here is an image of the book cover:

Here's hoping for a good piece and not some fast spit out dribble.

Movie books aren't usually good, but I look forward to this dashing literary piece by Mr. Alan D. Foster. *tries to look sophisticated* *sips tea* *fake bifocals fall off* *spits out tea* *runs out of den*

Jokes aside, I look forward to this. There hasn't ever been a real TF novel.

Here's hoping it doesn't clash with the awesome-looking IDW offering.

Hmmm ... this might be good. I'd give it a look. Surely has got to be better than the garbage the comic is gonna give us.

It's probally a novelization of the IDW series...

Foster's not my favorite, but at least its not Steve Perry- ugh.

Ah damn. He's a horrible writer. The Star Wars books he's done have tarnished the writing of Terry Brooks and the others who have done such a good job at making the Expanded Universe so good.

And yet without his work on "Splinter of the Mind's Eye" and the novelization of the original film, none of those guys would have had that opportunity.

Ironic, ain't it?
