Channelling Agatha

"The Australian" today carries two reports of a possible case of plagiarism involving "Best-selling Australian author and Fairfax newspapers astrologer Jessica Adams". Take note of the "Fairfax" reference; "The Australian" is a Murdoch paper as you will recall. Adams has a story titled "The Circle" published in a New Year edition of The Big Issue, a newspaper which helps homeless people. It seems that this Adams story closely resembles one written in the 1920s by some long-forgotten writer named Agatha Christie. Expect the merde to fly over this one.
