MESSAGE
A Plagiarist Among Us
DISCUSSION
I have just been informed by the editor of a website that hosts stories and poetry from a number of authors, that a story I posted on this site several years ago has been plagiarized by a man named David Boyer who also uses an alias none other than David Byron. I was told that my story "Madelaine" was virtually copied word for word, except for the spelling of the titled character. If this information I received is false, I will gladly apologize to Mr. Boyer or David Byron. However, if the editor is accurate, and I'm unaware of any reason why she would fabricate such a serious accusation, I will take measures to right this ugly situation. I thought the contributors on this site were honorable participants but I guess I've been fooled again.

RESPONSE
"I just received an email with an attachment of the complete anthology of David Byron entitled "Unseen." It contains several short stories and among them is my story "Madelaine" which he plagiarzed word for word. If any of you doubt this,I will be happy to forward a copy of this email to you if you care to provide your email address. " -- Richard Koss. (2011-3-11)
"Yeah, he stole some of my stories too. A few I have on this site, "Evil's Fingers," "The Rivals," "The House That Bernard Wellingsworth Built," and "Octavia's Obsession." He had asked me to contribute to an anthology of his and I agreed. This was a long time ago. He had said that others would also be contributing. Also, I remember him having an online magazine that he was running with different writers contributing, and I contributed to that too." -- Michael Harris, Detroit, MI, USA. (2011-12-3)
"Michael, This should be a lesson to all of us who contribute to this site - that being self-published means nothing. Even if we write crap, it's our crap and noone should have a right to steal it from us. " -- Richard. (2011-12-27)
