Love the forum so I decided to register.
At any rate, what's the worst book you came across dealing with the JFK conspiracy? I nominate American Confidential: Uncovering the Bizarre Story of Lee Harvey Oswald and his Mother by Deanne Stillman.
Interested in reading your answers.

In terms of millions of people deceived and the amount of errors-per-page, these mass-marketed titles from major publishers spring to mind.


"Who Killed JFK?" 1992, many reissues. "High Treason", 1989, the later paperback version and reissues sold millions. A more recent large-selling book littered with errors is "JFK and The Unspeakable", 2008.

Millions? If so, Groden must be a millionaire?

If Groden made, say, $250,000 from books and videos, and selling autopsy pictures to tabloids, and didn't have any meaningful employment for 25 years, then he was living modestly. His career as a courtroom expert witness went nowhere fast. Wonder if he's getting a mental disability pension.

I was just thinking if High Treason sold 1 million copies, and the author received $1 per copy sold that would be 1 million dollars. Of course half that would go to Livingstone depending on how they had agreed to split funds.

Per average rates, for Groden to get $1 per paperback sale, the paperback would have to sell for $40.

The book's premise was that Mary was murdered by a CIA "wet work" operative who had attempted to frame Raymond Crump in her shooting because "Mary knew too much!"

I "dug my own grave," in the CT "community".

The author of the book's friend, Douglas Horne, "lashed out" in reaction to the unwelcome facts I presented.



Horne's friend, book author Peter Janney confirmed in the revised edition of his book. forced by my research results, that I had not concealed who I was by naming me in his attempt to discredit me because he could not counter the facts I discovered that had dismantled his fairy tale.

I checked and discover the reason why he left. Apparently, Tom and the author of Destiny Betrayed were censored because of Hank Albarelli's complaint over the Mary Meyer issue. Edited April 9, 2021 by Calvin Ye

The worst books concerning the JFK Assassination are all the conspiracy-orientated titles, all of which are written in a deceptive, dishonest, fraudulent, spurious, and distorted manner, etc., and aimed at an unsuspecting public as the authors are cognizant that conspiracy disinformation is marketable to the masses.
