do you have any sample material of Prentis, I can't find it anywhere...
Because of the fiasco, just about all traces have been excised. TEFF still has this up, but it is lo-res and difficult to see details (which may have been strategic on their part).
Roy also attempted to revisit the Prentis outlines and move them further from Lexicon. But it was hard to shake loose, and I don’t think he ever really succeeded in getting out from Lexicon’s shadow. If I were you, I’d set this aside for at least a year to get some distance and perspective. Then see if it still pulls at you.
They all look the same to me. Isn't this style beaten to death already?
There were plenty of important differences to be seen, and many things to recommend Prentis (and the later versions) over Lexicon. But the similarities remained. And the dust-up with TEFF soured the whole thing.
Roy always maintained that there was no intent at plagiarism and that he started from scratch. I believe him. He was always forthcoming about his inspirations.
I hope he will forgive me for relating publicly as much as I have, since I know he has struggled to put the whole incident behind him. I bring the whole thing up mostly as a cautionary tale.
What ever happened to Roy? He sort of disappeared after that incident.
Well, the whole affair was a bit disheartening, as you can imagine. Also, I think he had some health issues. We lost touch.
But I guess he’s still around. He published Prenton (which I’m pretty sure grew out of the sans component of Prentis) through some group called BluHead.
