Writers Against Plagiarism

I wanted to bring this matter to people's attention, seeing as we have quite a few writers here in the Heroscape community. Usually, I'm pretty up-to-date in all (or rather most) literary scams out there because I am trying to get published...I for one do not want to get duped. Nevertheless, this particular scam, despite being around for a year, was just brought to my attention through SFWA, and it is my intention to forward the information on to others who may not have the time to do the research themselves. This particular scam involves plagiarism--big time! What's more is that unknown writers are targeted, even more so than known authors. So: a word of warning to all...

The full story is here.

Re: Writers Against Plagiarism

Boyer's a dirtbag, but he's so low-level that no one bothers with suing him. That's why this movement to get him prosecuted through the attorney general's office of his home state is so important. Here's a blog that keeps tabs on him:

Re: Writers Against Plagiarism

New news on this front: apparently Boyer has plaigerized Stephen King now, as well. I Googled for news on this, and this came up (December 7).

He's in trouble now...

Re: Writers Against Plagiarism

It's wierd -- Boyer has gone nearly 3 months without drawing attention to himself. Though from what I hear, that's soon to change. More info to come.

What do you blog about?

Don't think of it as being outnumbered. Think of it as having a wide shot selection!

It doesn't happen often, but when it does, it can really hurt a writer. I think you're pretty safe with a blog, but always err on the side of caution.

What do you blog about?

Apparently Lucasser has been ban. I assume he had created multiple accounts. Correct?

You know what happens when you assume; you make an assu out of me. I still have no idea what that means.
