• Random House sued ME; not the other way around.
  • Random House filed suit to silence the facts I was posting on the web.
  • There has been NO trial on the facts, only the Random House effort to prevent a trial.
  • The only sworn statements made under penalty of perjury are affidavits from me and my experts, nothing from RH.
  • The judge refused to consider any expert analysis.
  • Despite suing me first, Random House & Sony UNsuccessfully demanded that I pay the $310,000 in legal fees they spent to sue me.
  • Contrary to the Random House spin, I am not alleging plagiarism of general issues, but of several hundred very specific ones.
  • This is not about money. Anything I win goes to charity.

I have a second blog, Writopia
which focuses on Dan Brown's pattern of falsehoods
and embellishment of his personal achievements.

Brown's Next Book

This post was originally a response to a comment made by Mark. But I've been told it's interesting enough to elevate to its own blog post.

Random House keeps saying that Dan Brown's next book ... which they originally said was due out this year ... is really coming out next year.

Regardles of when it comes out, it will be possible to tell if the next book is actually written by him.

You see, the forensic guys were totally pissed off to have their work insulted and not to have a day in court, that they have been working on their own time doing some very interesting analysis which is headed for scholarly publication.

They have found that -- measured according to a number of metrics including word choice, placement, pacing etc. -- Da Vinci Code is more like Da Vinci Legacy and Daughter of God than it is to Brown's previous books.

Those results are being vetted for peer review as we speak.

Add that to the procedures and analysis on authorship currently accepted in criminal trials (higher stanhdards than civil trials) and the forensic people will be able to determine whether the next Brown book is written by the same person as Code ... or the previous Brown books.

I get the impression you think someone else wrote Code.

Someone with impeccable credentials believes there is provable evidence of that.

More when the work is done.
