Shady, shady

Author Stephenie Meyer, writer of the best-selling young adult "Twilight" books, has put the fifth and final installment in the series on hold in protest after a partial draft was posted on the Internet.

Meyer has said that she has a good idea of how the leak of "Midnight Sun" had happened as so few copies had left her hands and each was unique. Thus, she has shelved the fifth book in the series.

"I feel too sad about what has happened to continue working on "Midnight Sun," and so it is on hold indefinitely."

And everywhere, fans of Edward Cullen breath a collective sigh of disappointment.

Maybe this is real, or maybe it's just publicity for the release of the Twilight movie this fall. Who in this business can really turn their back on a buck?
