Leaked from three small presses, the early or unwanted manuscripts of two heavyweight writers and one other guy.
1. Green Frog – Martin Amis
Slated for release Nov 14 1989, then pulled following a tear-stained email from the author. All existing copies have been burned.
2. The Disgruntled Plaintiff – John Grisham
Written last year in Barbados, this hardcover edition was scheduled for publication in early January. The publishing editor committed suicide after Grisham returned the galleys, and the release was cancelled.
3. Stuff That Happened to Me on the Train Last Weekend – Mil Millington
This debut novel from the British humorist was slated for release in 1999 but was cancelled after a fire in the building destroyed the entire print run.
