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.

  The premier Scientology webpage:

  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.
