The Manitou – The Original Ending

One of the many paperback covers for Graham Masterton's The Manitou.

One of the many paperback covers for Graham Masterton's The Manitou.

Not long after I posted my review of Graham Masterton’s The Manitou I surfed on over to the author’s official site and made an interesting discovery. The published ending to the novel was not how Masterton had originally envisioned wrapping up his story, and you can read the original version here or you can download a PDF version here. Apparently the publisher wanted “a more dramatic ending … a denouement in which the hero Harry Erskine played an active role.” While many may see this as the money guy interfering with the creative process, the published version brings the story to a much more satisfying finish.
