So we finally have an admission from Amazon that they withdrew the book from sale because they received "a legal letter from a Church member". Not the Church itself, but an individual.

What could such a letter possibly have said? A threat to take legal action if the book was sold presumably. Have their lawyers checked the validity of the threat out, or are Amazon and the rest of them backing down on purely financial grounds? We may never know.

WHSmith's have also vanished the book from their website, and Waterstone's I'm told are going very funny with inquirers. Perhaps they are hoping vainly that Amazon will get all the bad publicity if they stall.

The article incidentally is carelessly written with numerous errors. Sunday World don't seem to have quite realised that they not playing games here, this is a nasty UFO cult and they really need to be accurate at all times.

Wait. Are you saying Arthur Miller didn't write Bare-Faced Messiah?

Do you mean A View from the Bridge isn't about the Bridge to Total Freedom (TM) and Death of a Salesman isn't about Hubbard's final years?
