In that post (which you can read here) I explained that the suggestion had been made by a man behind a book published by Harper Collins.
My learned colleague Mattias Boström also blogged about the subject (here) and was contacted by Harper Collins who undertook to email him with a statement within a few days. At the time of writing (to my knowledge) this has not happened and at least a week has passed.
Clearly, apologising for an unwarranted attack on the reputation of a great writer who's not in the position to fight back is not high on their list of priorities.
