the hubbard is bare

Just a quick footnote to the last post: Russell Miller's 1987 Hubbard biography Bare-Faced Messiah is hard to get hold of in physical form now, but just as Hubbard "discarded the body he had used in this lifetime", in the Church's words, in 1986 (or, as we would say, "died"), the book has now transcended the need for corporeal paper-and-ink form and moved to a higher plane of existence, specifically here at the excellent Operation Clambake website. The formatting isn't as easy on the eye as it might be, but it really does appear to be the full text of the book, for free. I've only dipped into it here and there, but it's fascinating stuff.
