Re: Off Topic: Movie Tie-In Editions

In contrast to the cases I mentioned before, here's one I've read about: Martin Caidin's novel Cyborg was rather different from its screen adaptation The Six Million Dollar Man, in that Steve Austin was more of a ruthless killer, his bionic eye was just a camera and couldn't see, he had a poison dart gun in one of his fingers or something, etc. But several of the novelizations of 6M$M episodes altered the stories to make Steve more like his novel equivalent! Which must've been confusing to fans of the show.
