They aren't alike at all. And it's a German MOW thingee, pretty lowgear.
And the Nick in that one was very much of this world and not a vampire
(I never said he was, actually *blink, blink*).
I just found it a remarkable coincidence.

I'm guessing this wouldn't qualify, but neither do I
think it is coincidence (any more than I believe that
Tanya Huff's latest books are "coincindentally" like
FK, but that is all just opinion).

 Under US Copyright:
In the United States, "derivative work" is defined in
17 U.S.C.  101:

A "derivative work" is a work based upon one or more
preexisting works, such as a translation, musical
arrangement, dramatization, fictionalization, motion
picture version, sound recording, art reproduction,
abridgment, condensation, or any other form in which a
work may be recast, transformed, or adapted. A work
consisting of editorial revisions, annotations,
elaborations, or other modifications which, as a
whole, represent an original work of authorship, is a
"derivative work".

I don't know Tanya and have never met her to ask, but I think her books are
meant as "tributes" or maybe even a bit of humor at FK in a fun way. Even I'm
guilty of professionally published FK parody <wRPg> (Sadly, although i was
asked to do another issue of Atomic Mouse, the publisher had to cancel it when
the *evil* Diamond comic book distributor raised the number of issues required
to be distributed through them. GRRRRR!)

Subject: Radio Show - Sony for release of DVD's

I listened to the Radio Show that was recorded by Sony
with the release of Season 1 again. Ger and James
Parriott were guests on the webcast, and I listened
with interest to their answers to some of the
questions submitted, especially the love triangle
between Nick, Janette and Natalie. Ger seemed to be
leaning more toward an "eternal love" with Janette
(although acknowldeging the attraction to Natalie),
where as James gave an unequivocal "Natalie."

It was also interesting to hear them talk about the
fan community (us!!) and their admiration for our
efforts, and the acknowledgment of the efforts of KtK
to get the show revived, or at the very least release
all seasons (have you sent your email to Susan yet? :)
