SF have been vigorously rejecting claims made by Brendan Hughes in Voices from the Grave. It is hardly surprising that party members would not want to pay for the book and enrich Ed Moloney for what they insist are false, agenda driven claims. They should be left with the options of not reading the book, waiting for a library copy or trying to borrow one.
However, SF members (including one who works in their bookshop) are widely emailing a PDF copy of the book. The copy, which Slugger has seen, is not a scan. Where it originated from is not clear but it is certainly not a legitimate copy or being distributed legally.
Despite this I am also informed that a bookshop in West Belfast sold out its entire first order within hours.
