Granada [the scumbag film-house in question] has hardened their stance (even after -- or perhaps because of -- being shown evidence that the numbers they are standing on are fraudulent). Their current position is classic Hollywood: they claim with a straight face that a movie which only cost around $3 million to make back in 1982, and which has earned at least $20-25 million, is still $15 million in the red (!) because of "interest charges," and therefore they don't need to share a penny of their large windfall income from it.Link (Thanks, Connor!)
I write books. My latest is a YA science fiction novel called Homeland (it's the sequel to Little Brother). More books: Rapture of the Nerds (a novel, with Charlie Stross); With a Little Help (short stories); and The Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow (novella and nonfic). I speak all over the place and I tweet and tumble, too.
