Giangregorio copies King’s The Mist?

August 17, 2009

An anonymous tipster just directed me to this thread on Stephen King’s forum where a poster accuses Giangregorio of plagerizing King’s The Mist in his book The Dark.

I just finished a self-published book entitled “The Dark”, written by Anthony Giangregorio, which is a direct rip-off of your book, The Mist. This book was printed in 2009. This book takes place in a small town in Massachusetts where a man lives there with his wife and small son. It seems that a giant wall of something black is closing off the town and in the dark are giant scorpions and other un-savory monsters from another dimension, that the man, who is stuck in a hardware store alone with his son, his ex-girlfriend and other people of town, must fight.
Sound familiar?

Do we have another potential case of Giangregorio basing work on another’s copyrighted material?  If you’ve read The Dark please let me know your thoughts.
