From 1990: The (thin) paperback book WELCOME TO TWIN PEAKS.
One of the victims of the general crash in all-things-print seems to be the "unofficial" tie-in. Once upon a time, any TV show that looked half-way like a hit would quickly be accompanied by a hastily-written tie-in peppered with disclaimers and a smattering of magazine covers or agency-purchased stills of the stars.
The internet, briefly, made these books easier to write as it supplied a ready research-from-home source for authors in a hurry. But, at the same time, it was also killing the market.
The book shelves used to be straining with unofficial STAR TREK tie-ins... now you will be hard-pushed to find anything of the sort... and I doubt very much that's down to the ace legal team of CBS Consumer Products. The truth is... no one cares very much anymore. I think one of the most damming comments on ENTERPRISE is, despite a four-year run on a national (albeit cobbled together) network, no-one could be bothered to write a book (except for some novels) about it.
This is a quickie release from 1990 that appeared between the two seasons of PEAKS... that brief moment when the show looked like it might be hot for a while. Apparently, this sleight tome attracted the legal ire of the network and production company and had to be withdrawn and pulped. I picked this up at the time from the Fantasy Inn bookshop on London's Charing Cross Road (just around the gallery from Trafalgar Square) before it burnt down and closed for good.
Last week I picked-up in London's Foyles bookshop a new tome on the show called REFLECTIONS. I've only dipped-in but (so far) it's an excellent behind-the-scenes history of the show told, in chronological order, by the cast and crew. I suspect the on-off-on again revival will also generate something official and new... possibly in the coffee table department. Fingers crossed...
