The Da Vinci crock?

I plan to read Dan Brown’s The DaVinci Code as soon as one my friends can remember where he last put it. (No hurry, Steve. I already have too many titles on my bookshelf.) I have read (one of) its rebuttal(s), Cracking DaVinci’s Code: You’ve Read the Fiction, Now Read the Facts, by James L. Garlow and Peter Jones.

Imagine my surprise to read that The DaVinci Code may be a work of plagiarism. Lewis Perdue, author of Da Vinci Legacy and Daughter of God, among many other books, is embroiled in a copyright suit with Dan Brown and Random House, Inc.

You can read about it on Perdue’s web sites or blog.

Looks like Perdue’s taking this one to the court of public opinion.
