While he may have reportedly turned his back on “filmmaking” he’s still keeping himself occupied with a number of television projects, plans to take Cleopatra to the theatre and he’s just finished a novella entitled Glue.
In addition Soderbergh is also publishing the novella in a very handsome looking signed hardback book edition, via his website Extension765.
The book is rather expensive but it would seem that the price is mostly due to the cost of production. Soderbergh said the following about it on his site,
What you’ve really wanted all along was a signed hardcover copy of GLUE, and as you can tell from projects like FULL FRONTAL and K STREET, I’m all about giving people what they want. One possible barrier to success in this case is the price; I only printed fifty copies to start, and because I wanted the really good paper, they cost about $55 each to print, so I’m selling them at $65 to cover the fulfillment costs. It might help to think of it as a coffee table book if your coffee table is about eight inches in diameter. And if they sell, I can place a bigger order and bring the per copy price down. Stay tuned.
There’s certainly space on my coffee table for this book.
