Plagiarism explosion

It turns out that an author I’d been following (!) with interest, on a number of flash fiction sites, has been plagiarising work from all sorts of sources. Big ups to Angel Zapata for not only discovering this, but doing a ton of sleuthing to fill out the detail. It looks like most of those stories with the byline Richard Ridyard have been removed from sites over the last 24 hours. Of course, those stories are around anyway, under the byline of their real authors. See Angel’s post here for the gory details and discussion.

Thanks Angel
