In 1998 Marc Cerasini wrote 5 Godzilla novels that were published by Random House. However due to the disappointing 1998 Tri-Star "remake" of Godzilla people soon lost interest and Godzilla merchandise dropped in sells. Unfortunately that movie came out in the summer and the final book, which was due in November of that year got canceled because of the drop in sells. Because of this only 4 out of the 5 books came out and Random House, the publishers, never renewed their license with Toho to get it out.
This is unfair to those who want already bought the first 4 books and wanted to see how it all ends and who the new monster enemy was. With Legendary Pictures's Godzilla reboot coming out in May 2014 people are getting interested in Godzilla again especially since it seems to actually live up to it's job of being an adaption.
With this new interest in Godzilla coming back now is the prefect time for Random House to renew their deal with Toho and republish the first 4 books as well as finally release the final books and give fans the closer they wanted while making a profit off the new new craze Legendary Pictures's is making.
These books are also a fun and exciting way for children to learn how to read.
