RUSSELL MILLER'S BARE-FACED MESSIAH, BACK IN PRINT IN FEBRUARY! - 2013-12-05
We have a stunning announcement to make. Silvertail Books is bringing back into print the book which revealed for the first time the true life story of L. Ron Hubbard, the founder of Scientology.
Bare-faced Messiah: The True Story of L. Ron Hubbard by Russell Miller was first published in 1987, after a long legal battle between its original publisher, Michael Joseph, and the Church of Scientology. The book's original US publisher, Henry Holt, became mired in legal problems after a series of lawsuits in the American courts, and the book was never properly published here.
Silvertail publisher Humfrey Hunter bought world English rights through Michael Sissons and Fiona Petheram at PFD. Hunter tells us, "Bare-Faced Messiah was a sensation when it first came out and is every bit as relevant today as it was then. By telling the full, true story of L. Ron Hubbard's extraordinary life, and calling out the untruths told about it, Russell tells an incredibly colorful story and reveals the origins of Scientology in riveting detail. It's an astonishing read — your jaw drops on virtually every page."
