    James Charwood, Science BlogFiction Writer and ED-quality loon,
    is about to fake his own death on the internet, in the mis-guided belief
    that this will cause me to leave him alone and not make fun of him on
    teh innerwebz ....

    ATTENTION FRANK WALDEN :

    I had some questions concerning Jimmy's "death", so I emailed the last known address,
    and received this response :

    Mr. James C. Harwood, science fiction author, of Norman Oklahoma USA,is deceased. Before he died, he turned over to me access to all of hisInternet accounts, ownership of his novels, and administration of hisblog. I am in the process of closing all of his Internet accounts atTwitter and Facebook, while maintaining his blog and this emailaddress. Respond further if you have any questions. I am Frank A.Walden, Intellectual Properties Attorney, Norman, Oklahoma, USA. -- Frank A. Walden,Intellectual Properties Attorney,Norman, Oklahoma, USA


    well, I did have some questions, so I further responded, and got this reply:

    Mr. James C. Harwood, science fiction author, of Norman Oklahoma USA,is deceased. Before he died, he turned over to me access to all of hisInternet accounts, ownership of his novels, and administration of hisblog.

    also,the last open blahg of James C. Harwood, Deceased Science BlogFiction Writer, is now closed,
    even tho a posting on the date of the announcement of Jimmy's "death" said the blahg would remain
    open until June 1, I'm assuming the date of the Reading of the Will ...

    of course, we all know what's in the will, don't we Frankie ?
    Jimmy left everything to you ....

    he signed the papers in your office and ... died the very next day ...

    coincidence ?
    I don't care, but let's see what the Norman Police have to say ...

    and the fun part is,
    not even SuperLawyer Frank Walden has the juice to get the Amazon page pulled ...
    http://www.amazon.com/Hereafter-Book-Mi ... 960&sr=1-1

    bet Jimmy never thought about that ... I'm sure he was proud as punch when it got put up ...

    I, straight white Science Fiction Author James C. Harwood, have a book on Amazon !!

    if he'd've known how to twit back then ....

    now, it bites his ass ... I'm trying to contact The Tidwell to get the emails between Jimmy and
    the Amazon admins; I'm sure he's begging them to remove it ... which would prove he's not
    dead ... because, surely, surely Jimmy's not stupid enough to impersonate an attorney in
    business-related communication to a major corporation ...

    right, Jimmy ?

    [off stage, Norman, Oklahoma:]
    Jimmy: Oh, shit ... oh my god ... I hadn't thought ... oh no .. I ... I can't go to Federal Prison !!

    What is going on here? Are you saying that he really is dead, or that he might have actually faked his own death? Isn't that a crime? Especially if people try to obtain copies of his book at inflated prices. I would think that this is the sort of thing someone might do time for. I can't believe that he would lie to the world like this. Has anyone informed the Church of Scientology yet (could they have had something to do with this), or his Facebook friends?

    Yeah, I think it is highly illegal to actually fake your death, and this definitely wouldn't be the way to do it. It's one of the craziest things I've ever seen, but I'm relatively inexperienced with the internet. The whole scenario is ludicrous. I'm perfectly willing to eat it if it's true because it can't be. So, keep up the good work, Sandrider, I can't wait to see what happens next. If Harwood has any brains at all, he's writing his second novel, A Milder Case of Death: The Blog of Frank Walden.

    A witness has come forward to confirm my suspicion that
    Frank Walden, Internet Attorney Copyright Specialist,
    has murdered James C. Harwood, Internet Science Fiction Author,
    after securing the rights to Mr. Harwood's intellectual property,
    namely one BlogNovel, fourteen Blogspot Blogs, four Facebook identities,
    and twenty-seven Twitter accounts ....

    Mr. Walden has also taken possession of Mr. Harwood's personal computers,
    one new and one damaged in a cyber-terrorist attack funded by Muslim Extremists,
    and I have good reason to believe that Mr. Walden has also taken up residence
    in the former Mr. Harwood's apartment (rent was paid thru May) ....

    I have sent all this information to the Norman, Oklahoma Police Department,
    and the FBI regional office in OKC ...

    (and I'm not kidding ... you people know me well enough ... and not some email bullshit from
    a bogus gmail account, either, on paper, USPS, with my real name - a suspicious death has
    apparently occurred, and I am in possession of information not necessarily available to local
    authorities ... I believe it is my civic and legal duty to assist the police in this matter ...)

    (and right now, I'm searching for an email address for the obituary section of the local paper -
    I'm concerned they have not yet run the announcement of one of Norman's leading citizens ...)

    Only if "James C. Harwood" existed in the first place. If he was a "persona", or a nom de plume, then "Frank" is just playing games.

    That would be an intriguing twist. I wouldn't have thought that a guy who writes that he's "Single, no children, has not ruled out marriage to the right woman" on Amazon would be deep enough to create an entire persona like that ("usually blue jeans casual," Science Fiction Party Facebook page, Moderate Centrist Independent political affiliation, cheesecake links, Spritualist doesn't believe in either the Bible OR Evolution).

    If that is what he's done, and his name is Frank Walden, I will applaud him, and I will ask him why the hell he didn't put that kind of effort into the characters in his book.

    Well, I'm just speculating. He seemed to be his own cousin for a while there, so he was no stranger to assuming identities. Maybe we were just assuming that Harwood was the "real" one.

    Edited to add: I'm not saying he was necessarily being clever about it. He may have had ... er ... issues.
