Introduction to the 30th Anniversary Edition by WILLIAM GOLDMAN Until a couple of weeks ago, this introduction would have been real short: Why are you buying this book? is what I would have said. Or more accurately, this edition of this book? Buy the 25th anniversary version, I would have told you. It's got a long intro by yours truly where I explain a lot about the Morgenstern estate and the horrible legal problems I've had with them. That version is still out there and what you are interested in is the same thing that I am interested innamely, at last, getting Buttercup's Baby published. I would also have gone on to tell you that there is nothing to report on that front. Same old same old. Well, that was then, as they say. Something new has very much happened. Let me tell you how I first heard of the existence of the Morgenstern Museum. Back we go to 1986, Sheffield, England, and we are shooting the movie of The Princess Bride . It was such a happy time for me, at last Morgenstern coming to life on film. I had written the screenplay for it first over a decade beforebut it had never been picked up, as they say Out There, till then. I ordinarily do not not not like being on movie sets. I once wrote that the best day of your life is your first day on a set and the worst days are all the ones that follow. They are tedious and horrible for several reasons: (1) they are tedious and horrible (but you won't believe that, I know), and (2) if you are the writer, essentially, your work is done. I make the actors nervous, but more than that, and if I have written this before, skip this part, I have an amazing ability to screw up shots. I hide on the sets out of the way when the camera rolls, but I cannot tell you how often the director, just as he is about to start, sees where I am and asks me to please move, because I am standing in the exact spot where the shot will end. A few days before the day I am about to tell you about, we were shooting the Fire Swamp. And there is a moment in the movie where Cary Elwes (Westley) starts to lead Robin Wright (Buttercup) through it. Now I know what is going to happenthere is a flame spurt and her dress catches on fire. Why am I so smart? Because Morgenstern wrote it, I adapted it for the novel, and used it in every draft of the screenplay, of which, believe me, there were many. OK, I am standing there on the set of the Fire Swamp and Rob Reiner goes action, Cary and here they come into view, those two wonderful actors, and I am watching from a corner of the set, and he leads her forward, one step, another step at which point there is a flame spurt and her dress catches on fire. At which point (so humiliating) I start to shout, Her dress is on fire, her dress is on fire , totally destroying the shot. Rob yells Cut, turns to me and in a voice I can still hear, he says with all the patience he can muster, Bill, it's supposed to catch on fire. I think I came up with something real smart l Fiction Fiction eBook, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt

Title:

The Princess Bride

ISBN:

Here William Goldman’s beloved story of Buttercup, Westley, and their fellow adventurers finally receives a beautiful illustrated treatment.

A tale of true love and high adventure, pirates, princesses, giants, miracles, fencing, and a frightening assortment of wild beasts—The Princess Bride is a modern storytelling classic.

As Florin and Guilder teeter on the verge of war, the reluctant Princess Buttercup is devastated by the loss of her true love, kidnapped by a mercenary and his henchman, rescued by a pirate, forced to marry Prince Humperdinck, and rescued once again by the very crew who absconded with her in the first place. In the course of this dazzling adventure, she'll meet Vizzini—the criminal philosopher who'll do anything for a bag of gold; Fezzik—the gentle giant; Inigo—the Spaniard whose steel thirsts for revenge; and Count Rugen—the evil mastermind behind it all. Foiling all their plans and jumping into their stories is Westley, Princess Buttercup’s one true love and a very good friend of a v
