Dead Island Getting Novelization

I sure do love game novels. OK, I’m joking, because the only books based on games I’ve ever read are the Mass Effect ones, as GameFront doesn’t pay me to review novels. I’m sure there are people out there who love to consume game novels, though, and for those people there will be a Dead Island book out the week that the game launches.

The book will be or has been or is being written by Brit Mark Morris, who you’ll know if you’re the kind of person who reads Dr. Who novels, you tool. Bantam is publishing the book.

I’m sure this is exciting news for someone.

I’ve seen good franchised novels before, but typically for tabletop games. I’ve never been adventurous enough to try a video game novel, except the one for Myst, which was pretty good.
