The Benford Plagiarism Dossier 16

Please note, on Facebook there is a Group

Joanne Benford Appreciation Society

which was formed to collect evidence on Benford's plagiarism

That site has now found 19 cases of non-academic plagiarising by Benford
3 cases of Academic plagiarisation, 3 cases of art plagiarisation

These do not include the "countless" cut and pastes in her academic thesis

You may not have Facebook membership.

Please sign up and visit this group as the evidence there is staggering

I should also tell you that A215 students in their droves are signing into this group

Dr Joanne Benford

a selection from the Open University site

I also regularly write features and articles for magazines such as Woman’s Own, People’s Friend and Best.

CafĂ© Ultima ‘A romp through the lives of various members of cafe society... violent moments, but strangely poetic in tone.’
Published 2000 Moog Enterprises New edition, reprinted July 2008.

Was 100% ripped off. I have the name of the (male) author and his editor

The Music of the Spheres That star upon the serpent’s head Is called the soul of man…’ A collection of poetry with original illustrations inspired by the planets and the mythology and magic connected with them. Published 1996 by Moog Enterprises

The Ring of Elements Special edition artist’s book, comprising the full set of four elements. Created in a limited edition, each will be unique, featuring hand finished detail. New edition, reprinted July 2008. ISBN 1 900701 189 / 978 1 900701 181

Contains a short-story actually written by Alex Keegan, a work by William F Strine and also by W D Beresford and Cicely Barker, and John Burnisde!

Down By The Water
This is the first in a series of four books, together comprising the ‘Ring of Elements’ set, and is composed of lyrical stories, poems and artwork, linked by the sea, the river and those that inhabit them. ‘A fantastic read, crammed full of beautiful language, similar to Dylan Thomas, perhaps, or GM Hopkins. Also beautiful illustrations by the author herself.’

‘An avant-garde novel, comprising story chapters interspersed with some poems. These poems form the inner monologues of the main characters, including the heroine, drowned by her lover, and haunting his descendants.’ (her own review, I believe)

New edition, reprinted July 2008. ISBN 1 900701 111 / 978 1 900701 112

Contains work by Barker, and John Burnside

Scorched Earth ‘I want to hear this soft damp night breathing.’‘We only know the sudden shadow-cold… black with coal, and the long tunnels of the afternoons pelting into the future like stones lobbed by bullies at our faces.’ ‘Wow… making a huge mythology if you immerse yourself in them all. Thanks for the dreaming!’
New edition, reprinted July 2008. ISBN 1 900701 146 / 978 1 900701 143

An academic work. I haven't read but another academic wrote to me saying it contains huge chunks of Peter Wollen's "Delirious Projections."

Living Doll: The Seduction of the Cyborg
Published by Moog Enterprises 2008 ISBN 978-1-9007-0121-1

Another academic tells me: Whole sections are from Of Aids, Cyborgs, and Other Indiscretions: Resurfacing The Body in the Postmodern by Allison Fraiberg (Postmodern Culture v.1.n3 (May 1991) where Joanne Benford appears to have edited out all the parts relating to AIDS.
