BIRMINGHAM, AL - Convicted serial bomber Eric Rudolph is taking on a new title: author.

An anti-abortion Internet site has published a 5,500 word story written by Rudolph documenting how he searched for food while living in the woods of western North Carolina.

Rudolph is scheduled to be sentenced to multiple life terms on July 18th. He pleaded guilty in April to the deadly bombings at the 1996 Atlanta Olympics and a Birmingham abortion clinic in 1998. He also admitted bombings a women's clinic and gay bar in Atlanta in 1997.

The website with Rudolph's story, maintained by a Virginia-based abortion opponent, also includes the manifesto Rudolph distributed to reporters explaining the reasons behind the blasts.

A federal prosecutor said there was little authorities could do about Rudolph's stories appearing on the Web.
