The latest in “filing the serial numbers” off

“Fifty Shades of Grey” is apparently a popular “triple-X trilogy involving sex games and a bondage-loving billionaire”, which I’ve never heard of, but I’m a bit out of touch with pop culture so that doesn’t mean much. Here’s the fun bit:

“The series actually got its start as a Twilight ‘fan fiction’ story called “Master of the Universe,” penned by a writer who called herself “Snowqueens Icedragon.” While some have accused “Shades of Grey” author E. L. James of plagiarizing the story, her agent has confirmed to TODAY that “Snowqueens Icedragon” is actually E. L. James and she authored both the earlier story and the books.”
