Care To Help Peter S. Beagle?

Kira writes: I just found out about this from Conlan Press, and hadn’t seen anything posted on ToRn… I really think it deserves attention. The fan community stood behind Tolkien in his royalties battle, and I think we owe it to Peter to do the same. I’ve only met him once and that was brief, but he is an amazing man who certainly doesn’t deserve this:

In the last two years, London-based Granada Media (a multibillion-dollar entertainment and news conglomerate) has sold over six hundred thousand DVDs and videotapes of THE LAST UNICORN. They’ve also made cable broadcast deals for it in several different countries, and they sold the live action remake rights for a quarter of a million dollars.

The film is based on Peter S. Beagle’s famous book. He also wrote the screenplay. The film is as good as it is because he put everything he had into it.

And you know what? Granada Media refuses to pay Peter what they owe him. They’ve made millions on his creativity. They owe him hundreds of thousands of dollars. But they won’t pay up. [More]
