He created quite a stir with 'The Da Vinci Code'.

He was pretty prolific as well as being highly talented. People complain about his 'facts' when the books are clearly labeled as fiction.


I am thinking he either got paid off or threatened or is getting a lot of law suits to occupy him.

One helluva writer.

HERE IS HIS WEBSITE

Have you ever tried to uncover the codes that are hidden in the book jacket of The Da Vinci Code?

UNCOVER THE CODE

Having designed and built computer systems for a living, I was very disappointed in "Digital Fortress." No matter how well written in other aspects, when an author gets technical details fundamentally wrong, the whole story loses it appeal to me.

As for the fundies complaining about "DaVinci Code," I say screw 'em. The same criticisms of were made about "The Last Temptation of Christ" and "Jesus Christ Superstar," all three proved to be faith affirming in the end without being orthodox canonical. Anything that shows Jesus as a man more than God threatens the fundies world view. The deliberate exclusion of Gospels such as Thomas and Mary Magdalena was to ensure the early church was built more in the image of Paul than Jesus. Rumors of Mary's profession and the story of "Doubting Thomas" were put in place to make sure these competing views of Jesus were not part of orthodoxy, so the censuring of authors on this subject is as old as Jesus himself, whether labeled 'fiction' or not.

I check into his web site periodically, hoping to find news of an upcoming book. I feel like I am walking in a deserted house. Not much activity last I checked.
