The Apostate // Paul Haggis vs. the Church of Scientology — New Yorker

Type: Press
Author(s): Lawrence Wright
Source: New Yorker
On August 19, 2009, Tommy Davis, the chief spokesperson for the Church of Scientology International, received a letter from the film director and screenwriter Paul Haggis. “For ten months now I have been writing to ask you to make a public statement denouncing the actions of the Church of Scientology of San Diego,” Haggis wrote. Before the 2008 elections, a staff member at Scientology’s San Diego church had signed its name to an online petition supporting Proposition 8, which asserted that ...

L. Ron Hubbard's last refuge — New Times SLO (San Luis Obispo, California)
Type: Press
Author(s): Colin Rigley
Source: New Times SLO (San Luis Obispo, California)
In Santa Barbara’s Church of Scientology, as in each such outpost worldwide, an innocuous office sits equipped but vacant. This office is located beyond shelves of shrink-wrapped books, beyond training rooms, the “comm” rooms, and a room occupied by enigmatic bowls of stones and other obscure objects. The office, with white walls and plush blue-and-gray carpeting, waits, should he somehow return, for the man once known as L. Ron Hubbard. His full name was Lafayette Ronald Hubbard. His followers—in keeping with ...

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 ...

Collaboration with Hubbard led Winter to 'Earth' — Daily News

Author(s): Bruce Britt

Initially labeled a blues-rock singer, Edgar Winter went on to record popular hard-rock albums like "Frankenstein," "They Only Come Out at Night" and "Shock Treatment" during the 1970s. Winter has been out of the spotlight lately, but he has kept busy touring with former Doobie, Brothers singer Michael McDonald as well as singer-songwriter Leon Russell. He also performed on David Lee Roth's rendition of Winter's 1974 hit "Easy Street." Recently Winter returned to the recording studio to record in album titled ...

Letters // Ignoring achievements of L. Ron Hubbard — Virginian-Pilot (Norfolk, Virginia)
More: link
Type: Press
Source: Virginian-Pilot (Norfolk, Virginia)
To the Editor: Modern journalism seems to have developed a nearly terminal case of "tunnel vision" — only believing things that are "controversial," "horrifying," "absurd" or "sexy." Things which conflict with this journalistic "formula" are either ignored or ridiculed. Such is the sad fate of staff writer Patrick Lackey's June 26 review of a book ostensibly concerning the late American author and founder of the Scientology religion, L. Ron Hubbard (Bare-Faced Messiah, by Russell Miller). The book itself also suffered this ...

Hubbard's 7th 'Voyage' is an awful trip — Orlando Sentinel
Type: Press
Author(s): Joe Kilsheimer
Source: Orlando Sentinel
The late L. Ron Hubbard was a respectable science fiction writer in the 1940s and '50s. He published a number of stories in Astounding Stories, the magazine in which some of SF's leading lights, such as Frank Herbert, Issac Asimov and Robert Heinlein, published their early works. In the mid-1950s, however, Hubbard turned his mind in on itself and developed the self-help doctrine of Dianetics, which later developed into the cult religion Scientology. After more than two decades out of science ...

A mystery / Hubbard's purple prose is still selling volumes — Seattle Times
Type: Press
Author(s): Frank Catalano
Source: Seattle Times
The writings of L. Ron Hubbard are a mystery. Not the writings on Dianetics and Scientology, topics on which the late Hubbard wrote dozens of books and manuals. No, the mystery is Hubbard’s science-fiction writing — specifically, why it’s selling so well. Before his death last year, Hubbard celebrated his 50 years in writing by producing “Battlefield Earth,” an 800-page tome that critics suggested was a better doorstop than book. That was followed, because of what Hubbard called “enthusiastic response,” by ...

In the '30s and '40s, before founding the Church of Scientology, the late Lafayette Ron Hubbard was a popular and prolific science-fiction writer. His 1948 novel "Final Blackout" among other works is considered by many a classic of the genre. Recently, Hubbard returned to the field with "Battlefield Earth: A Saga of the Year 3000," a lengthy epic of heroic Earthmen's resistance to alien invaders. Alien invasion is once again on the agenda in "The Invaders Plan," Volume 1 of a ...

In a newish sort of castle in Sussex a suite of rooms, with private bar, an electric organ, and an elegant writing desk complete with pens and an unopened pack of his favorite cigarettes, await one of the world's most prolific and richest authors. Yet the rooms, cleaned regularly, remain unused; the chair behind the desk has not been sat upon for over fifteen years, though the man for whom all this is carefully — even lovingly maintained — has sold ...

Three years ago, somewhere near this dusty little town of watermelon fields and senior citizen trailer parks, a pudgy, prolific science fiction writer named L. Ron Hubbard climbed into a black van and reportedly disappeared from sight. Nobody in Hemet, 80 miles east of Los Angeles, or anywhere else might have cared about the fate of a 71-year-old eccentric with a lust for privacy, except that Hubbard was the founder of one of the word's wealthiest and most controversial new religions. ...

DENVER — A handwritten letter signed "L.

In the letter, dated Feb. 3, the writer says he was "dismayed" at the church's confrontations with the FBI, the Internal Revenue Service and the Food and Drug Administration, and noted that the incidents occurred after Hubbard resigned from the church in ...
