  1. Totally a pub­li­city stunt…I out­line it on my blog who bene­fits from this law­suit.

  2. if it was such a col­lab­or­at­ive exer­cise Mr Baigent and Mr Brown both went through an extens­ive ordeal in cross exam­in­a­tion which they are likely to remem­ber for some time”

    Yes, I expect they are cry­ing all the way to the bank.

    And for the oth­er team, note that the mass mar­ket paper­back of DVC has now been pub­lished in the USA, they have been hold­ing pub­lic­a­tion, first to make more money out of the hard­back but lat­terly for the out­come of the tri­al. Of course, that will make more money for DB now.

    Someone on anoth­er blog (Booksquare I think) had a rant and asked who on earth would buy the paper­back as every­one must own the hard­back by now. My sug­ges­ted answer to that is “gifts”. (ie people buy it for oth­er people rather than buy­ing it to actu­ally read).

  3. PS. Love your note about Leigh’s book — with that descrip­tion I can’t wait to read it either!

  4. It seems like an inspired plan really — write a crap and obscure book, and when it goes as poorly as can be expec­ted, hitch your meta­phor­ic­al wag­on to the nearest pop­u­list crap. Fame by proxy seems to be in these days.

    Still — you have to hand it to Mr Brown, he’s done well out of writ­ing badly…
