Crackpot Mailbox: Lynn Lockhart Tracks Crackpot Literary Fate in the Shallows of Hate
Some knuckleheads luck out some of the time, as I did when Lynn Lockhart adopted the management of my "off the rails" Graphomania condition as a hobby.

I have spent the day being amazed and staggered by the fact that most people still don't know what you have done and are doing.

I don't know the exact figure but LaFond made something like a buck per copy sold, a modest four figure amount over the life of the book. Even after self-publishing became widespread, James was powerless to make any money off this book that Paladin owned

I made exactly 53 cents a copy for the $24 listed The Logic of Steel, as virtually all sales where through amazon for $16.95. I have heaved all my paperwork in the trash when I went homeless and never did add up total sales, which were somewhere just south of a thousand, which I think was from two 500-copy print runs. Millionaire Lynn Thompson did make $250 for a Black Belt magazine article he wrote after Paladin sent him a free copy. In this article, he flatly ripped off my research, failed to attribute my work and even had a model that looked and dressed like me as a bad guy. I am still hoping he will send me a free polypropylene cane.
For everyone who has bought The Logic of Steel, I thank you.
For Lynn resurrecting it after amazon banned my reprinting of it, I thank her.

I bought Logic at list at Amazon......23 clams or so.That is a criminal rate to pay an author. That book is world renowned. It completely changed that genre of non-fiction/self defense books. When I played music for major labels, it was the same though and the band shared 99 cents a copy. Pathetic.....right?
