Cinemaker Press was a unique hybrid of fan produced and published fan fiction with the approval of TPTB (in this case Republic, the copyright owners of Beauty and the Beast). The press worked directly with fan writers (mostly), unlike the more traditional tie-in novels that were commissioned by Avon using professional writers.
Two novels were published - both in paperback and one of the two in hardback. Cinemaker had financial problems and the books listed as upcoming publications were published by the authors themselves as fanzines. See Bright Spirit Descending for more on this subject.
