Private paranormal investigation and elimination company founded in New York City in 1984, by discredited former Columbia scientists Dr’s Peter Venkman, Raymond Stantz and Egon Spengler. Ghostbusters employees typically charged between 4000 and 5000 dollars per ghost removed, which meant the service was a slight premium.
The Ghostbuster’s ghost elimination policies came in for much debate criticism, some speculated whether they were the source of the sudden unexplained increases in spectral activity in the tri-state area. Others including the EPA, were concerned about their use of unliscened nuclear accelerators in their work and the waste chemicals in their basement. This came to a head with the EPA shutting down their ghost storage facility which had the equivalent effect of dropping a bomb on the city. The Ghostbusters (now including Winston Zeddemore) were arrested and eventually cleared of all charges and proceeded to stop an invading god-like being called Gozer The Gozarian which took the form of a hundred foot marshmallow gay sailor on shore leave. By crossing their nuclear accelerator streams they managed to destroy the marshmellow sailor, create a marshmallow rain storm and blow the top 15 floors off of 55 Central Park West.
Despite saving the world once more Ghostbusters Inc shut down for good in 1991 amidst huge debts and lack of business.

American postmodernist author of the mid 80's to the current day. Ellis was one of the so called Bratpack of American authors of the 1980's along with Jay McInerney and Tama Janowitz.
Ellis writes exclusively in the first person present tenths,as if the character is narrating the book.
Ellis's first novel 'Less Than Zero'(published while still in College) was a critical and commercial smash. Dealing with the vapid lives of wealthy California teens back from College for the Christmas hollidays. Ellis followed this up with 'The Rules Of Attraction' a college melodrama set in a thinly disguised Bennington college. It received less positive reviews. Then came Ellis's most famous and controversial book 'American Psycho.' The shocking book detailing in gruesome detail the exploits of stock broker and psychopath Patrick Bateman, drew howls of outrage from critics, NoW, and Ellis even received death threats.
What was lost in the furore was that Ellis's book was a scathing satire on the 1980's and as the author himself has said, largerly a feminist book.
Ellis didn't publish another full length novel (the patchy short story collection 'The Informers' aside) until the '99 novel Glamorama. A international thriller dealing with fashion model-terrorists and the increasing shallowness of society it was easily his longest book to date and the hardest to get into.
In 2005 Ellis released Lunar Park a so-called fictional autobiography with Ellis himself as the main character tormented by figures from his past,adjusting to married life in Suburbia copycat killings from AP. Many characters from his books are characters in this socalled autobiography, delighting his hardcore fans.
'The new Bret Easton Ellis book is out today, stand by for controversy.'
