William H. Patterson, Jr.: “The New Yorker knows who I am”
The author [Lawrence Wright] contacted me when a high church official 1 said the biography confirmed that Heinlein as Hubbard’s naval intelligence handler sent Hubbard to Jack Parsons to break up “black magic” practice.2
The author of the article3 noted that the biography doesn’t say anything about this. He contacted me by email and we had a short exchange a couple of months ago in which I said I had investigated that claim on behalf of the Scientologists but had found no evidence for the claim.
