Occasionally, I get an outraged comment on my blog accusing me of plagiarizing. Today, someone "anonymous" charged me with copying a piece from the website Endnotes on Rick Bass's story "The Hermit's Story." I checked it and clicked the citation icon and saw that the original source was a set of books I edited a few years ago in which I originally published the Rick Bass piece. I sometimes reprint parts of pieces I published elsewhere on my blog. I urge my critics to please check the original source before accusing me of something I have never done in my fifty years of research and writing--plagiarize. And I do wish that if you have an accusation to make against me, you sign your name instead of using "anonymous."
