David Shore I believe, wrote the screenplay. He did not write or originate the story, which is my story by the same name (A Matter of Style) which I sold to and is published in the anthology by Byron Priess, 'The Ultimate Dracula.'
I wrote and sold 'A Matter of Style' to Dell Publishing during a series of contracts with them when Isold four books to them (Blood Lust, Dusk, Descent and Succumb), although the fourth book, 'Succumb' was so heavily rewritten by the editor, Jeanne Cavelos, that I pulled the book from publication and broke the contract against the advice of my then agent, Perry Browne, whom I fired immediately. I then sold 'Succumb' to Pocket Books with the agreement that I would write a vampire novel like my vampire novels with Dell for them(which became 'Blood", published by Pocket).
'A Matter of Style' had no part in any of this as I did not use an agent for this and it was sold before the 'Succumb' fiasco.
There is far more to this story involving how the Pocket agent who bought those books moved on to Zebra where I sold him more books as David Darke, but the space too brief and as I say, does not involve this story which is copyrighted in my name.
Please adjust your credits to give credit where it is due.
