We have to apologize to University of Alberta Professor Stephen A. Kent. He sent us a copy of his newest book ages ago, and we simply haven't had time to do more than leaf through it.

It's an academic tome, and its title is Scientology in Popular Culture: Influences and Struggles for Legitimacy, and it's a collection of chapters written by various scholars, including Susan Raine and Hugh Urban.

Kent himself is one of the hardest-working scholars in the Scientology field, and he's amassed a legendary collection of Scientology materials, some of which we got access to when we were researching our own book about Paulette Cooper, The Unbreakable Miss Lovely.
