In your book, The Artsy Smartsy Club, there's a character named Ivan Itch. He goes by Nick. Am I right? Well, In Dostoyevsky's The House of the Dead, on the second page of the introduction, is a character named Ivan Ivanitch Gvozdikov. Yes. His middle name, or second first name, or his first last name, is Ivanitch. Is this just a coincidence, or was Dostoyevsky copying you?
PS: I think you should really start writing more books faster, because I thoroughly enjoy rereading Borgel every week or so.
PSS: Why is Borgel out of print? It shouldn't be. I think I'll start a petition.
I'm going to have to speak to Fyodor about this....again! Of course he won't listen--he's an idiot and a gambler. Plagiarism is a crime, but he eludes punishment because he's underground...in the house of the dead, you know? At least he steals from the best.
