After thirty years of making the questionable available, Loompanics Unlimited is shutting down. This may be your last chance to stock your library shelves with books like Backyard Meat Production , Prison Killing Techniques , and The Construction and Operation of Clandestine Drug Laboratories at 75% off. They no longer carry the most famous of their titles, but you can actually buy The Anarchist Cookbook at Amazon now, despite the author's objections:
...I wrote to Lyle Stuart Inc. explaining that I no longer held the views that were expressed in the book and requested that The Anarchist Cookbook be taken out of print. The response from the publisher was that the copyright was in his name and therefore such a decision was his to make -- not the author's. In the early 1980's, the rights for the book were sold to another publisher. I have had no contact with that publisher (other than to request that the book be taken out of print) and I receive no royalties.
