Hmm? Dette er vel noe jeg leste i en bok for over et kvart århundre siden. Så detaljene husker jeg ikke, beklager! Men jeg fant i det minste en webside om noe av dette. Sitat:
Hamel also speculated that some copies of a Hubbard science fiction novel were sold more than once.
He said that while he was working at the B. Dalton in Hollywood, some books shipped by Hubbard’s publishing house arrived with B. Dalton price stickers already on them. He said this indicated to him that the books had been purchased at one of the chain’s outlets, then returned to the publishing house and shipped out for resale before anyone thought to remove the stickers.
“We would order more books and . . . they’d come back with our sticker as if they were bought by the publisher,” Hamel said.
Akkurat slik som jeg mente å huske det.
