Bob Penny, one of the founders of
(Fight Against Coercive Tactics Network), gives this account of
how Margery Wakefield's book was originally published in a dual
edition with his book, Social Control in
Margery wrote the first part of the book (The Road to Xenu),
and I wrote the second part (Social Control in Scientology).
We decided that the two parts complemented each other, so we published
them together in one volume which we first released at the 1991
Cult Awareness Network
conference in Oklahoma City. The printing was done
in response to demand at the nearest Kinko's or other quick
printer. The volumes were bound in a thermal binding machine of mine.
Both Margery's work and mine were released to the public domain in
1993, when they were offered for download on the (non-internet)
FACTNet BBS. Neither are on file with the Library of Congress unless
someone else put them there. The text has been available (with no
remuneration to either Margery or me) on the FACTNet BBS and on
countless Web and ftp sites for I know not how long.
