Brown's "Solomon Key" Title Still Alive


In January 2006, back when Dan Brown was being sued by Michael Baigent and Richard Leigh the first time, Brown's publisher, Doubleday said The Da Vinci Code sequel would not be called The Solomon Key. "No title, no content, no publication date, no nothing," Doubleday's Alison Rich said.

Interestingly, Dan Brown has just updated his DNS entries for solomonkey.com and solomonkey.net though 2016. Whether that means he's nine years away from publishing, we'll just have to see...

In The Da Vinci Code, Dan Brown capitalizes on the re-spacing of san greal as sang real. So it's amusing that Solomon Key can be re-spaced as Solo Monkey. I mention it now because the possible re-spacing is even more apparent when the title is written as a URL.

(Credit goes to puzzle wizard Mark Gottlieb for first bringing this possibility to my attention.)
