Ok, well I don't know if they did.
Maybe Mel was under a contract to produce a certain number of books, once the contract was completed, that's it.
I guess the best thing to do is find contact details and ask Mel.

It would probably take some information tracking....

When FSS originally took the loan from Comerica (for which the HG:L IP rights were used as collateral) was that for ALL IP rights inclusive, for specific portions of the IP rights, or did the agreement have specific rights excepted (i.e. copyrights)?

Even then it's still not making any sense! I mean when they did the Lord of the Rings film trilogy they asked the Tolkien family to join the wagen! JOIN! The family refused and still we saw film right? There's even a bloody MUSICAL going about based on the films! So what is there really to stop Mel from writing yet another book with the first line being "This book is based on the Pc game 'Hellgate: London'. ":?:

Through me you pass into eternal pain:   
Through me among the people lost for aye.   
All hope abandon, ye who enter here.”

Writing it?  Nothing.

To get it published, he would have to have an agreement with the party holding the copyright.

Atleast Dungeon Siege sold well and was praised by many critics, unlike Hellgate which was a marketing disaster and Uwe Boll does movies just about anything. Atleast Dungeon Siege got own movie, not many games get own movie, even though it sucked.

Well you got a point there. But consider this:
A- Dungeon Siege didn't have bad management.
B- Dungeon Siege was just tossed onto the shelves with more bug to fix than there were spiders in 'Arachnophobia.'
And C- Dungeon Siege doesn't have it's own book, comic or manga series written based on it.
