The Lost Symbol Hoax

** Edit: Added a competition to The Cryptex: Give your prediction of the plot of The Lost Symbol. Win a signed copy of the upcoming Darklore 4!

For those still arriving and seeing the ‘new’ Daily Grail for the first time, click here for an explanation. Please excuse the lack of visible updates to the site – I’ve been working behind the scenes to sort a few things out, and also working on various other projects (Darklore 4 and The Guide to The Lost Symbol in particular).

Not only did I update The Daily Grail’s look, I also added a fresh look to my Dan Brown news site ‘The Cryptex‘, just in time for the release of the sequel to The Da Vinci Code – wander over and take a look, and tell me what you think (your TDG login should work over there – I hope – if you want to comment at all). While there, you might be interested in a fascinating story I just posted:

Last month, The Scotsman posted an interview with Masonic historian Robert Cooper, in which Cooper claimed the plot of The Lost Symbol had been leaked. The story was said to be about how George Washington was actually working for the British, and was a traitor to the Revolutionary cause. The story was picked up in various places and reproduced as an insight into Dan Brown’s upcoming book.

Except, it’s not. And the full story (which I uncovered with some major help from TDG’s Perceval), is quite bizarre: Go check it out – “Washington as a Traitor – Redux!“. Curiouser and curiouser.
