O.J. Simpson – If I Did It – Torrent – OJ Simpson

If I Did It (torrent) is a canceled book by O. J. Simpson, in which he puts forth a hypothetical description of the murders for which he was acquitted in a 1995 criminal trial, but found financially liable for in a civil trial. The book was announced in mid-November 2006 for a November 30, 2006 release, but intense public criticism led to the cancellation of the book’s publication and a related television interview, both from divisions of News Corporation (HarperCollins/Regan Books and Fox Broadcasting Company, respectively). According to a Newsweek story, all 400,000 printed copies were recalled for destruction, save for one locked away in a vault at News Corp. While the book has been almost impossible to find on the secondary market as a result, one copy did show up on eBay on January 15, 2007, with a starting bid of $1500, and sold for over $65,000 fueling speculation about whether News Corp. was able to destroy all printed copies. James Wolcott of Vanity Fair obtained a “pristine hardcover” of the book for a review published in January 2007.

This is so weird.

Douglas Coupland’s New Novel – JPOD

Cory Doctorow: Douglas Coupland makes a habit of following the Internet gossip about his proclivities and habits — when he finds a juicy rumor about his hobbies (such as the idea that he's an avid meteor collector), he tries out whatever the rumor has him doing.He's written a new novel, JPod, in which "Douglas Coupland" appears as a character, based on the nasty things that people write about him on the net.

There's a rumor going around the Internet that Douglas Coupland collects meteorites. Nobody knows how it began, least of all Coupland. But the story started to circulate shortly after his first novel, Generation X, became an On the Road for the '90s. Every effort he's made to set the record straight has been ignored by his many fan sites. So he recently decided to purchase a few choice specimens……[F]or JPod, he created a character called Douglas Coupland, based on his online doppelgänger: a one-dimensional egotist with cold eyes resembling "wells filled with drowned toddlers." This Coupland first intrudes on the action when the narrator – Ethan Jarlewski, a game designer working for a lightly fictionalized Electronic Arts – meets him on a plane to China. Coupland is ostensibly writing an article for Wired on "designer prisoner-of-conscience labor," but he's secretly developing a gadget and, not incidentally, looking to poach programmers from Electronic Arts.
