    As has been mentioned, noms de plume, or pseudonyms, have been used for centuries. What is troubling is the difference between how this “hoax” has been received, compared to the egregious treatment that the media dealt LAURA ALBERT. When it was revealed that she, Ms. Albert, a woman from Brooklyn, wrote the three critically-acclaimed novels (“Sarah”, “The Heart Is Deceitful Above All Things”, and “Harold’s End”), under the pseudonym, J.T. LeROY, a transgendered drug-addicted youth from Appalachia, a witch-hunt ensued! No such hue-and-cry has greeted “the reveal” of J.K. Rowling. Clearly, this was a planned marketing strategy; it’s all about the money, and it stinks!

    OH MY GOD. The horror of this scam. This is worse than finding out Richard Bachman was really Stephen King. The world will come to an end in 3, 2, 1....

    Move on people there is nothing to see here. Pen names have been very common for centuries. Ms. Rowling has been branded and stereotyped as a children's author therefore incapable of writing for adults. I don't blame her a bit. Too bad her cover is blown.
