David Boyer - The Patchwork Plagiarist

"Hannibal and Clarice: A Love Untold" is the bonus story included in "Shadow Dolls."

Within the 22 pages of this story, David Boyer plagiarized nine separate pieces of work from eight different authors.
(His victims are two well known and successful musicians and six fan fiction writers who share their writing for love, not profit.)



Boyer is taking his plagiarism to a still lower level by sewing together various parts of other writer’s works into one new work. In the process, he not only plagiarizes their works, but he also destroys the individuality of these writer’s works.  As an example of this, consider the bonus story in “Shadow Dolls” called “Hannibal and Clarice: A Love Untold."  In this short piece, as you will see, he plagiarizes 8 separate writers in his attempt to make it appear that the new “creation” is his own.
