Fraud Alert! Amazon Overcharging My Books!!

There is an Amazon seller "Origin Media" trying to pass off a copy my recent book Egyptian Rituals in the Wizard of Oz with a $133.60 markup. has so far failed to publish any of my books through Lulu like what was supposed to happen and instead has enabled dirty scalpers. This company Origin Media is hoping that a customer will accidentally click on the wrong seller and then have to fork over the money to them. They don't even have a copy of my book to sell!

I have never actually sold a copy of this particular book through Lulu. As I understand it, Amazon requires a vendor to have the book it is selling in stock, so Origin Media appears to be breaking its terms and conditions. This book seller intends to wait until you buy the book through them, then they will go and buy it for $15.95 and charge you $149.55, pocketing the $133.60 markup plus $3.99 handling!

Origin Media is run by a man named Byron Belitsos, a founder of a prominent 9/11 “Truther” organization. This dirty scheme speaks volumes about these fringe "journalist" truthers. For those of you who don’t know, “Truthers” are way-out political activists who claim that the 9/11 terrorist attacks were an “inside job” done by our own government.

Byron Belitsos is an author, editor, journalist, and book publisher as well as an experienced political activist and practicing mystic. He was an inaugural member of the board of and produced “9/11 Truth Convergence,” one of the first 9/11 conferences. He is the CEO of Origin Press, where he published Inside Job, by Jim Marrs….Byron has been politically active since 1969 in a variety of venues and contexts in the labor and socialist movements and most recently, in the world democracy movement; he is a board member of the Democratic World Federalists.
I am shocked that a reputable company like Amazon would behave this way. Other Lulu customers report the same problem. I recommend to everyone that you buy my books and calendars from Lulu.

P.S. I am still fixing errors in my Vitruvius: Ten Books on Architecture so hold off buying that!
