Follow up to Fiction V. Memoir

A link to David Hauslib's Jossip blog, specifically to an entry titled "A Brief History of Modern Lying Authors."

He covers the top four frauds of the last ten years--three phony memoirs, and one journalist faking his stories. But the field is sooooo rich! One could, were one so inclined, fill a blog with tales of bogus memoirs, fraudulent war stories that made it into print, faked quotes to bolster research--and don't even get me started on plagiarism!

Is there no honor among writers?
