As the editor of ASSASSINATION SCIENCE (Catfeet Press/Open Court, 1998, 480 pp.), I was disappointed and dismayed by the hopelessly inadequate review from Ernst-Ulrich Franzen. Apart from cheap shots directed toward the editor which take matters out of context, he somehow fails to mention that the book provides stunning new evidence
Franzen implies the book is expensive (it is not) and asserts it is not worth the reader's time. From what he has chosen to tell you, that might sound right. But he has not fulfilled his obligation to provide an objective and balanced review. Surely your readers deserve better!
