Apparently, Thomas Harris (author of Silence of the Lambs and the other Hannibal Lecter books, is in a bit of hot water for seemingly plagiarizing from a fan fic! The Daily Telegraph has released this article, insinuating that Harris has been stealing ideas and even lines of text from various fanfiction around the internet.
Now, this I find particularly hilarious. First, the authors/directors were threatening to sue the ficcers, and now the ficcers can sue them right back!
