Is it really that rare? I keep an eye on the critical books; prices usually average: $200 for Atack $100 for Cooper $50 for Kaufman $20 for Malko But they can swing wildly; I've seen Kaufman going for $100, and Cooper going for $5. And you can forget about Vosper; it's never for sale. Lamont, Miller, and Corydon fetch normal hardcover used- book prices, $10 - $15. And no, Atack isn't all that rare - it's just that no one is selling their copy! Malko is far rarer, and some very rare books only fetch a few bucks. I got _This is Life_ by Reg Sharpe and _Scientology for the Millions_ for about $5 each. For $100, you can get one-of-a-kind early items by unheard-of authors about Dianetics or Scientology. -- Cogito, ergo sum. http://scientologysucks.lron.com Watch Xenu TV: http://www.xenutv.com Go to a protest in your area: http://www.xenu.net/picket/ The premier Scientology webpage: www.xenu.net Mr. Hamra said, "The Church of Scientology now had a database of information on every subscriber which included names, credit card info., credit reports, telephone info., computer info., who had referred them to Earthlink and who were their previous ISP providers." Mr. Hamra told me about the "other Earthlink building" which was next door on New York Avenue in Pasadena. Mr. Hamra told me that the other building was high security and is where Earthlink and the Church of Scientology did all the monitoring of the internet. - DECLARATION OF ROBERT J. CIPRIANO.
