No Good Deed Goes Unpunished
That's fine by me. We will (eventually) get a trial, and we will get Dan Brown in court under oath.
Again, I'd ask: what is Random House trying so deaperately to hide that they fear a public trial? Why will Dan Brown not testify under oath that he did NOT plagiarize me?
The rejection of my offer means that those questions WILL be answered one way or another, in court or out. Preferably both.
