"Flight of the Shaman" - view it online.

The rich and successful author, Muriel Gray, told an audience of writers and members of the public, that my book, "Flight of the Shaman" was "practically the double" of her book. She lied that my book was written "long after" hers. The matter ended up in the Court of Appeal.

Muriel Gray : "one of the most insulting things"

I have added a webpage entitled, Muriel Gray : "one of the most insulting things.” It includes the following;-


Ms Gray had managed to work the unsuspecting audience up into a “big laugh” - she achieved the “big laugh” by means of lies and misrepresentation, viz: she lied about the dates of our work, and, although she did not mention me by name, she lied that I am a “nutter.” She then misrepresented the HarperCollins reply.

Following Ms Gray stating that my book is “practically the double” of her book, she informed the audience that she disagreed with what she had stated to be the HarperCollins lawyers opinion;-

Muriel Gray: “So stuff the Harper Collins lawyers and their clichés. Being a lawyer there’s a cliché. Don’t give me clichés.”

Letter to Ms Gray, her legal team, and HarperCollins

I have added a letter entitled, “A tomorrow’s chip wrapper affair”, to my website. The letter begins;-

In 2001 my brother heard Muriel Gray in an interview on BBC radio in which she was promoting her (soon-to-be-published) book 'The Ancient'. He listened to her discussing and expounding upon her book... and told me that it sounded so remarkably similar to my book, 'Flight of the Shaman,' that I should “check it out.” I checked it out and came to the conclusion that, in Ms Gray's own words, the two books were “practically the double” and that, “she's stolen my story.” I then contacted HarperCollins, sending them a number of detailed letters that listed the similarities.
