OK, 10 June 2002
Author: FieCrier from Upstate New York

It's OK.

The "Willard Hope Technique," whereby someone trying to write cuts newspaper articles out at random and assembles them to create a plot for a novel gets a young fan of Hope into trouble when he tries it for himself. The technique recalls Harry Stephen Keeler's "webwork" which is essentially the same.

Sort of a poorer version of Three Days of the Condor, where someone stumbles across a real plot.
