  •  Sprague was a good guy. (0+ / 0-)

    But during the 40's and 50's Hubbard made enough to make a passable living in the pulps.  He was published enough that Heinlein and Anderson and the rest were willing to put up with him as a 'colleague' of sorts, and that's more than most of us ever achieve, and pretty much what I was alluding to.

    Yeah, his stuff was all BEM's and Ray Guns, and pretty awful, but ... it made a living, enough to get him in the door later when he wanted to publish Scientology.

    Every year at Comic-Con his house (Galaxy Press) is in the booth next to ours.  They are pretty much what you'd expect.  :(

    I am not religious, and did NOT say I enjoyed sects.
