Since the title of the great-yet-unpublished tome is "Zodiac Death Machine: The Untold Story of the Unsolved Zodiac Murders," how about this?Zodiac Venom Machine: The Often Told Story Of Why I'm So Great and So Many Other People Suck

I honestly don't know how he can write a book. If you only go by "facts"...it would be a very short book.

LOL to all! The ZM decries bombast,etc.,yet he proposes a title that is purely bombastic!The book now is legendary,yes very much a legend !On his site at one time a few years back he stated he had one of the very top book agents promoting his book! Well, all professionals have a lapse of judgement at times.A solid gold chain around a snake doesn't make it valuable!

Well, it's been exactly a year since Mike Butterfield told me in his own chat room that his book was in the "galley" phases and that several people had a copy of the book already.Really? -spelling error

I believe his agent was Peter Miller. Could Miller have been the one to have the unmitigated gall to suggest the Great Bittercrite revise his sacred book? Guess MB figured HE knew more than an established agent. Then again, that would come as no surprise, since he always thinks he knows more than anyone else.

Bitterfield sent his so-called book (in reality a .PDF file) to a number of people including me, and didn't require anything verbal or in writing regarding not redistributing it.
