The original novelizations of both Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters II will be available for the first time since the 1980s via Titan Books next month. Packaged as one omnibus dubbed Ghostbusters: The Original Novelizations is based on the original scripts (including deleted scenes) by Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis.
The Ghostbusters novelization was written by Richard Mueller and follows this synopsis: When Dr. Peter Venkman and his Columbia University colleagues are kicked out of their prestigious academic posts, they start a private practice as professional ghost-catchers. Although things do not start auspiciously for the three parascientists, their television advertisements finally pay off when beautiful Dana Barrett contracts them. It seems her apartment has become the entryway for ghastly ghosts and goofy ghouls hellbent on terrorizing New York City. Soon they’re not just going to her rescue but trying to rid the whole city of the slimy creatures.
Meanwhile, The Ghostbusters II novelization was written by Ed Naha and follows this synopsis: After waging a war on slime that cost New York City millions, the Ghostbusters find themselves out of business until an ancient tyrant, preparing a return to the Earthly domain through his portrait at the Manhattan Museum of Modern Art, sets his sights on Dana Barrett’s baby as the new home for his wicked soul!
Titan Books will unleash the 448-page omniubs on April 21, 2020. It is now available for pre-order via Amazon in paperback and e-book HERE. Check out the cover art below.
