I wonder if the authors are truly despicable individuals who took the money and didn't write the books, or if there is more to it. Could it be that the authors have written manuscripts and submitted them to Penguin only to have Penguin reject the manuscripts? Maybe Penguin just doesn't want to go through with some of these projects? I have no idea, but it would be nice to hear the other side.


The article specifically says that the authors in question did not deliver the manuscripts; it does not say that Penguin got the manuscripts and rejected them for some reason.
