Scientology sells... And profits // IRS files shed light on church's finances — Seattle Times
Type: Press
Author(s): Karl Vick, David Dahl
Source: Seattle Times
[This is a shorter reprint of Scientologists profited from new members | St. Petersburg Times (Florida) | 15 October 1993.] WASHINGTON — It pays to pitch Scientology, according to earnings reports the church has filed with the Internal Revenue Service. One man averaged almost $200,000 a year in commissions from the fees of new members he had solicited to become Scientologists. The church gives its proselytizers 10 to 15 percent of what newcomers "donate" for church services, such as the ...

Selling good will, or Dianetics? // Major games sponsor outrages some by its link to Scientology — Seattle Times

Type: Press
Author(s): Marla Williams, Carol M. Ostrom

There is Pepsi-Cola, there is Gillette, there is Eastman Kodak and Fruit Of The Loom. And then there is Dianetics. Wherever there has been Goodwill Games, there has been Dianetics. As one of 12 worldwide sponsors of the international athletic competition, Dianetics has been very visible — on television screens, the sides of buses, banners, even behind the goal of the Tri-Cities hockey rink. In the University District earlier this week, a huge tent at Northeast 50th Street and University Way ...

The Scientology Story: The Making of a Best-selling Author // Costly Strategy Continues to Turn Out Bestsellers — Los Angeles Times (California)
Type: Press
Author(s): Robert W. Welkos, Joel Sappell
Source: Los Angeles Times (California)
Call it one of the most remarkable success stories in modern publishing history. Since late 1985, at least 20 books by Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard have become bestsellers. In March of 1988, nearly four decades after its initial publication, Hubbard's "Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health" was No. 1 on virtually every best-seller list in the country–including the New York Times. Ten hardcover science fiction novels Hubbard completed before his death four years ago also became bestsellers, four of ...

Hubbard hot-author status called illusion — San Diego Union-Tribune

Type: Press
Author(s): Mike McIntyre
Source: San Diego Union-Tribune
In 1981, St. Martin's Press was offered a sure thing. L. Ron Hubbard, the pulp writer turned religious leader, had written his first science-fiction novel in more than 30 years. If St. Martin's published it, Hubbard aides promised the firm, subsidiary organizations of Hubbard's Church of Scientology would buy at least 15,000 copies. "Battlefield Earth," priced at $24.95, was released the next year in hardcover, rare for a science-fiction title. Despite mixed reviews, the book quickly sold 120,000 copies — enough ...

The Goodwill Games, an Olympic-style competition designed to bring people together, is prompting protests because one of its sponsors is affiliated with the Church of Scientology.
