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 ...

HIGH on summer reading lists, at least for members of the Church of Scientology, is Bent Corydon's "L. Ron Hubbard — Messiah or Madman?" This is the book L. Ron Hubbard Jr. was co-writing before the church reportedly paid him $250,000 to stop feeding information to Corydon. Corydon went ahead by himself, and Scientologists have been so anxious to get advance copies of his expose about the late church founder, says a spokeswoman for publishers Lyle Stuart Inc., that they were ...
