As fangirls prepare to dress up in their Katniss Everdeen costumes for Halloween, a Hunger Games spoof will be published on November 15th. The video embedded above features the book trailer for The Hunger But Mainly Death Games–what do you think?
Curious readers can access the first chapter on Scribd. Here’s more about the book: “[This is] the only book brave enough to suggest that The Hunger Games was way more about death than food. Or at least this is what Bratniss Everclean discovers, when she shortsightedly volunteers for a teenage death tournament. But she soon realizes there are fates worse than death…like having to kiss her fellow competitor and lifelong stalker, Pita Malarkey.”
On Amazon, “Bratniss Everclean” is listed as the author, but the cover image lists Aaron Geary and John Bailey Owen as the authors. According to Amazon, Harvard Lampoon will publish another spoof in 2012, The Hunger Pains.
Lionsgate recently released eight promotional posters from The Hunger Games film, earning more than 6,900 “likes” on Facebook. The images showcase the actors portraying their characters and offer fans their first glimpses of Rue, Haymitch Abernathy, Cinna, Cato and Effie Trinket.
