I never heard of either Brad Vice or the controversy over a recent short story collection of his. But it seems quite a tale. Grumpy Old Bookman offers some comment and several useful links. A Charming Plagiarist in the New York Press provides the prosecutorial summation. In The literary lynching of Brad Vice Jason Sanford mounts a defense against the original charge, then takes up his cudgel again to ward off new ones. GalleyCat weighed in. So has Booksquare: To Live Outside the Law.
As for myself, I share Grumpy Old Bookman's sentiments about the creative-writing nexus.
