Ghostbusters: Das Buch zum Film (translates to "Ghostbusters: The book about the movie") is a adaptation of the first film written by Jason Dark of "John Sinclair" fame.
This adaptation is known for being loose with a lot of creative license in the writing including: making Egon being sexual, Winston only the driver, and Gozer being described as "like a gay punk".
