Where did you get the idea that my UFO Encyclopedia has sold only
"a couple of hundred copies"?  In fact, this ridiculously
expensive set (nearly $300 retail) sold several thousand.  (Early
next year will see the publication of the Encyclopedia's
much-revised, expanded second edition, at $125.)  Meantime,
according to a list I saw yesterday, my The UFO Book -- a trade
paperback abridgement of the Encyclopedia -- is the fourth
best-selling "New Age/Parapsychology" (sic) title in the country
right now.

Best Thanksgiving wishes,

Jerry Clark
