Steamy Ferret Sex involved in plagiarism scandal
Posted by E on February 5, 2008
Here’s a recent story of one man’s succesful attempt to single-handedly ferret out (pun intended) plagiarism of his own work.
The internet is abuzz with the steamy story of a popular romance novelist plagiarizing an article about ferrets. Who is this blasphemous writer? Well, none other than Cassie Edwards, “one of the leading authors in Native American romance,” author of books with titles such as Savage Moon, Savage Glory, Savage Wrongs, Savage Torment, and — well, if you haven’t seen a pattern yet, check out this list of her books. She’s been writing pretty much the same book every month since 1982, with the same title and same model.
Paul Tolme, the original writer of the now-infamous (and some would say scandalous) article on ferrets, writes a brilliant piece of sarcastic commentary on the new-found fame of his ferret piece. If you think you’d appreciate a platter of dry wit served with a side of scintillating irony, you must read his article on Newsweek’s site.
I got quite a kick on the cut-and-pasted ferret article served chopped up with flavour within the post-coital conversation of Savage Bear (or was it Shadow? oh well) and his pioneer mistress. It’s classic.
Crap. If I knew it was that easy to get published in that genre, I’d have been typing up trashy straight romance fiction eeons ago! Wait! There’s still time…..
