Tue, 16 Feb 1999 18:50:59 -0400 The Studios contract boilerplate on acquisition of a novel usually gives
them remake and sequel rights AND ownership of the characters. Westlake
pulled a caper here to get away with maintaining ownership of his
character, and I suspect the studio had to pay for it again when they
wanted the right to use the Point Blank character (again) in PAYBACK.
Neat. Maybe it'll turn into a Dortmunder book.
