ibooks, publisher of Ghostbusters: The Return, and Byron Preiss Visual Publications filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy on February 22nd. In the wake of Byron Preiss’s death last year (something I had not heard about), the company tried its best to continue without him, but ultimately could not make it work.
Chapter 7 is not protection from creditors while the company restructures, but rather the move to liquidate all assets – presumably this means the GB novel will be sold off to some other party in the coming year. Time will tell.
If you don’t have a copy of the book already, you’d best start looking around, fast. Amazon no longer has any copies available and their associated stores are asking for upwards of $88US… used.
