Well, within the bounds of the story there's really nothing slanderous in that. Rebekah Send a noteboard - 04/06/2010 04:43:34 PM
It's fiction. It's not like Simmons claims that truly happened...

In fact, you could probably take the bit where Simmons has Collins write "After that my life wasn't the same" (or whatever the words are) when he goes to King Lazaree as a final departure from the "real Wilkie Collins". It's like a marker stating that from here on in, things go really wonky.
