E.L. James and Vintage Anchor announced this morning that they will release Grey: Fifty Shades of Grey as Told by Christian, a shifted-perspective version of Fifty Shades of Grey,  told from Christian Grey’s point of view, on June 18th. The publication has been a big secret and is now a big surprise for James’s fans, the most diehard of which will recognize that June 18th is Grey’s birthday.

At this time, pre-order links are nowhere to be found, but they are undoubtedly coming soon [update: they’re here! Click title above to order it], along with a tide of thinkpiece and hot takes. For the millions upon millions of readers who loved the series, this is an exciting day indeed, and for those of us in the industry who watched with great interest, well, this next round is going to be fun as well.
