Boyd Rice 59:20 on Tracy Twyman
“Me and this [base, as the mind of the speaker] girl, wrote a whole book about this one time, and I wrote 10 of chapters and she 3 of the chapters and we had a deal with Redwheel/Weiser, and because of her being an [devoid, as the moral character of the speaker] this thing was never printed, and had it been printed, I would had probably been you know a wealthy man now, but had it been printed, I would had still been answering questions about Rennes le Chateau, you know 20 years later, so it is probably good it wasn’t printed and be the best seller, so that will allow me some to have a kind of normal way of life”.

On Boyd Rice The Presumed “Author” of Overseas Published Book
The Vessel of God
“I scored us a book contract with a sizable publisher. Then, in 2003, before the book got published, Boyd Rice and I had a disastrous falling out. It seems he didn’t want to share credit for anything with anyone, especially a young woman less than half his age. For my part, I got tired of doing all of his work for him, letting him take credit for my ideas and covering up for his appalling ignorance of high-school-level math, science, and history.”

“Another example is your complete lack of appreciation for what I have done to help improve your writing, and therefore, your public image. In every single article of yours that I edited, I did everything I could to correct the many erroneous facts, to fix your at times abominable spelling, word choice, and sentence structure, and to make your argument consistent, rather than contradictory, throughout each piece. Instead of appreciating this, you were constantly complaining about how my corrections “ruined” your work. Yet you were obviously completely unaware of the extent to which I was saving your ass. Do you realize that in that entire 400-page manuscript, not a single one of your Bible quotations was correct? Not a one! You even had attributed entire scenarios as taking place in the biblical narrative that simply do not. Such errors were in no way confined to biblical subjects either. In fact, anything having to do with math or science was invariably incorrect also. When you talk about these subjects, your 9th grade education really shows through. If you didn’t have me correcting you, you would look like a verifiable idiot.”
From Tracy Twyman Letter to Boyd Rice 2004
“I arranged a television interview and free trip to Rennes-le-Chateau for us both (originally offered to only me). AS a way of showing thanks, you schemed with the producer to upstage me and push me out of the show. It wasn’t enough that you got to be part of the show, but you had to be the star. You had to be perceived as the sole genius behind everything. You probably don’t remember it, but on the New Years Eve before last, when you were disgustingly drunk, you confessed this to me in front of four witnesses. I agreed at the time to forgive you, but I have known since that day that I couldn’t trust you in the slightest.”
From Tracy Twyman Letter to Boyd Rice 2004
“I was almost relieved when I got the letter in the mail from Red Wheel/Weiser Publishing, saying that they had ended the book contract with Boyd and me. They had discovered a website published by one of Boyd’s friends, in which they had uploaded the entire text of the book (from the file I had provided to Anthony S) with only Boyd’s name listed as the author. This was a violation of the contract terms, and so they had decided not to publish the book after all. However, they realized this was not my fault, and invited me to submit future works for consideration.
I was actually happy not to be stuck in any more business arrangements with Boyd. I was also glad to see Boyd’s efforts come to nothing. I think he thought that he was going to get away with it: that the book would be published, and he would get money from it, but he would still get to tell his friends that he wrote the book all by himself. He probably had it put on the web because he just couldn’t wait until the book came out to show his friends what “he” had done.”
