  1. Thanks for sharing that, Richard. There certainly are a lot of intriguing things in Russell's book about Nagell.
  2. Thanks, Pete! Al Rossi's new piece hosted at radical.org includes a nice mention of Stanley Marks and MMF toward the conclusion of the essay. But even for those not interested in Marks it's worth reading: a really brilliant scholarly meditation on the question "“Why are so many people against ‘conspiracy theory’?” The piece is titled: "The Necessary Rebuff of Conspiracy (Theory)" https://ratical.org/ratville/JFK/NecessaryRebuffOfC-T.html
  3. For anyone who hasn't yet viewed the Stanley Marks page on this forum, "Murder Most Foul! The Conspiracy That Murdered President Kennedy" is now back in print for the first time since 1967: https://www.amazon.com/Murder-Conspiracy-Murdered-President-Kennedy/dp/1736004948/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=stanley+j+marks+murder&qid=1605162246&s=books&sr=1-1
  4. This is a scanned copy of that most intriguing letter from the JFK Library, requesting a copy of "Murder Most Foul!" for their collection. This is also reproduced in the new edition of the book. (Collection of Bobbie Marks.)
  5. Good to hear from you Anthony, and thank you!
  6. I'm pleased to announce that Stanley J. Marks' MURDER MOST FOUL! is now back in print for the first time since 1967. Includes an in-depth biographical essay on the author's groundbreaking work and how it may have influenced Dylan. 400 pages, with illustrations. Available at Amazon, B&N, Bookfinder, and various other worldwide outlets. https://www.amazon.com/Murder-Conspiracy-urdered-President-Kennedy/dp/1736004948/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=murder+most+foul&qid=1605065978&s=books&sr=1-1
  7. Not many people nailed it as quickly as Castro did - and he was another lawyer, to boot.
  8. This is an interesting idea, to compile a list of very well known and reputable people who could never be accused of being tin hats but who believed in the evidence of a conspiracy. I wonder if we could add Dave Powers to this list. In discussing the possibility of Secret Service involvement in the conspiracy, in "Survivor's Guilt," Vince Palamara writes that ARRB "Director Tom Samoluk told the author in 1996 that JFK's longtime friend and Presidential Aide Dave Powers 'agreed with your take on the Secret Service...'" This caught my eye because in 1973, while Powers was still in charge of asse
  9. Jim, Kelin does briefly mention in the book that he saw them; near the end of the book he thanks "Gwen Field for feeding me and letting me see her late mother's panoplies." I liked that you mentioned how some of the key early people were lawyers and brought that special training into their work; to this list we can also add Stanley Marks. I am convinced that Marks had some contact with either Ray Marcus or Maggie Field, esp since the three of them were listed in that group interview. Also, Marks lived in LA and Bobbie Marks said that he gave public lectures about the assassination; and it wasn
  10. Just finished listening - a great interview with Jim and John Kelin.
  11. What Epstein did sort of fits into the notion of a limited hangout as defined by Victor Marchetti: "a favorite and frequently used gimmick of the clandestine professionals. When their veil of secrecy is shredded and they can no longer rely on a phony cover story to misinform the public, they resort to admitting—sometimes even volunteering—some of the truth while still managing to withhold the key and damaging facts in the case. The public, however, is usually so intrigued by the new information that it never thinks to pursue the matter further."
  12. That's great news! Looking forward to it. Kelin's book recently helped me to create some additional context for Stanley Marks' "Murder Most Foul!" and to verify certain facts and events. I found that the last two-thirds of Kelin's book really paints a deeper portrait of the human dimension of these researchers and gives you a sense of who they were as people. As well as showing you the evolution of thought in the early days of the case. PS: Epstein's "political truth" reminds me of Maoist "thought reform."
  13. Always interesting to see how these guys do not exist in a vacuum. They are part of a larger pattern, with its typical modus operandi. Thanks for this great info, Anthony.
