Look at all those places that posted pieces on this latest incident. It's great, but at the same it's a little sad that it takes "known" authors being plagiarized to get this sort of reaction. It's not like the whole Ridyard thing was any less sever. Plagiarism is plagiarism.

I heard something about this from the Horror Writers Org. Apparently they took back a stoker nomination or something after they found this out. is this the same one, with regards to Lisa's work?

Are you talking Lisa M? That's a different plagiarist. There are a few going on right now. Isn't that crazy?

The Cooks Source incident just gives me chills. The apology really wasn't one at all. (link may or may not be working properly)
It almost stated that they do this all the time. Then puts the fault on an overworked staff? WTF?

Exactly. If you're overworked, suddenly you don't have morals anymore?

The sad part here is that people are going too far.

Look at number 15 on the link I posted above.

# Technolog at MSNBC (rather lamely claims cyberbullying on the part of teh intarwebz for piling on when it came to light that pretty much everything Cooks Source published is a copyright violation)
Lamely claims? Sadly, it is cyberbullying. I wouldn't expect the owner of that blog to understand that concept, of course, considering that's largely the purpose of the site. It's awesome that the editor for Cooks Source was set straight, but to do so maliciously does nothing but make the situation worse. As noted, innocent people and businesses are being harassed because there's blood in the water and inconsiderate assholes are in a frenzy.

When you get a mob of people together for a friendly protest, and all it takes is one fuckhead breaking something--a car window, a storefront window--or setting something afire, and a riot ensues. Happens all the time. This has been the digital equivalent. It's unfortunate.

Bullying equals power.

Unbelievable. I was on the HWA site and I read this folks, and I copy and pasted it for you all to see. Is this what happened to Lisa's work?
This is a directly from their site, I don't want to get in any trouble for pasting it. So again, this was written directly from the HWA.Org Site
Stoker-Recommended Works Removed for Plagiarism


HWA has recently been informed of several acts of plagiarism regarding works on our 2008 and 2010 Stoker recommendations lists. The works in question are three recommendations received in 2008 for the short story "Electrocuting the Clowns", credited to "Doc Byron", and a recommendation for the 2010 anthology CRIMSON SCREAMS, edited by "David Byron". The publisher of CRIMSON SCREAMS, Sam's Dot, has pulled the anthology from release following allegations of plagiarized art; and the short story "Electrocuting the Clowns" is actually by Ferrel Moore. HWA has removed these recommendations from record.
HWA has also recently posted an article to our "Writer's Tips" page on how authors can protect themselves from plagiarism: http://horror.org/writetips-morton.htm. For more information on Mr. Byron's activities, please visit http://accrispin.blogspot.com/2010/10/cold-iron-david-boyer-plagiarist.html.
