EVEN the strongest stomach at this summer's American Booksellers convention must have heaved in protest when comely goons hired by Bridge Publications, the publishing arm of the Church of Scientology, marched up and down the aisles of the auditorium literally setting ablaze a book by L. Ron Hubbard — a "hot" author, get it? — a man who is said to have improved the lives (If not the careers) of such celebrities as Sonny Bono and John Travolta. Judging from their ...

L. RON HUBBARD: Messiah or Madman? By Bent Corydon and L. Ron Hubbard Jr. (Lyle Stuart, $20.) The Church of Scientology is a bizarre cult, and its founder and leader, L. Ron Hubbard, was a

L. Ron Hubbard wrote the 1950 bestseller
Dianetics, the Modern Science of Mental Health. It inspired a layman-oriented mental health movement which developed into Scientology, the most profitable of the money-making new religions. Hubbard was a bigamist who masterminded Watergate-style break-ins. He surrounded himself with adoring teenyboppers, uniformed in mini-skirts, bikini tops and high-heeled boots.

Corydon went ahead by himself, and Scientologists have been so anxious to get advance copies of his expose about the late church founder, says a spokeswoman for publishers Lyle Stuart Inc., that they were ...
