Jake Bible claims Balogun Ojetade plagiarized his novel
 
Jake Bible, author of the Roak: Galactic Bounty Hunter series, claimed on Facebook and Twitter that Balogun Ojetade plagiarized his writing in Ojetade's novel Scorpion Wine (Qiq, the Bounty Hunter). Bible released the image above showing extreme similarities between a section of Ojetade's book (at left) and his own novel.

Bible said on Facebook that Ojetade's novel "changed character names and the setting, but it is an almost word for word ripoff."

Bible requested Amazon take down Ojetade's novel, which it did. However, an entry for Scorpion Wine was still on Amazon as of this writing.

In a personal message Bible told me that because "'bounty hunter' is such a niche sub-genre that one of my readers found (the plagiarism) right away." But Bible suggested other authors may want to examine Ojetade's works for other possible cases of plagiarism.
