"I am happy to report that I am now lined up to write a new book, and am in the process of finalizing the details of where-when," Corgan wrote on his Everything From Here to There blog. "I share this because, in addition to that book, I am also set to contribute to a novelette with my beautiful friend Claire Fercak, and, in order to find the time to write, I am looking for fresh, creative ways to stay present with EFHTT.com."
The French author and poet Fercak previously published 'The Smashing Pumpkins -- Tarantula Box Set,' a fictional book about a teenage girl trapped in 'The Aeroplane Flies High' box set. In a detailed description of her book, Fercak explained that the character "finds herself in some music videos, in the album 'Adore,' 'Siamese Dream,' etc." and added that the story is a bit " bit like Alice in Pumpkin Land."
In related Pumpkins news, Corgan and former bandmates James Iha and D'Arcy have reportedly settled their lawsuits against Virgin Records. The band had claimed it was due royalties and that the label allegedly consented to unauthorized use of Smashing Pumpkins music in promotional deals. The terms of the settlement are confidential.
