Last Year we joined Host Paxton Holley on his I Read Movies podcast to talk about the wacky novelization of Gremlins written by George Gipe and published in 1984. Gipe is sort of notorious for his short but amazing body of adaptation work including the tie-ins for The Explorers and Back to the Future. His work tends to stray fairly far from the source material which makes his work very interesting. Sadly, Gipe passed away in 1986 shortly after adapting The Explorers, so there is not a lot known about his process, but Paxton and Shawn (one of the editors of this site) have a great time dissecting his work on Gremlins.
