Miller's account of Hubbard's life was so devastating that Scientology tried to have his book banned. "Bare-Faced Messiah: The True Story of L. Ron Hubbard," finished the year after Hubbard's 1986 death, was successfully printed everywhere but in the US, where, after two years of litigation, Miller's American publisher threw in the towel.

The biography was heavily cited by later Scientology books, including Lawrence Wright's bestselling "Going Clear." But few Americans have had a chance to read it.

Until now. Twenty-seven years after its original release, "Bare-Faced Messiah" is getting new life with a new publisher, Silvertail Books.
