Mar 29, 2013 — Rick Anderson, interim dean of the library at the U. of Utah blogs at The Scholarly Kitchen. His article about Edwin Mellen Press and Dale Askey was posted below but is available now only on Internet Archives. The company that hosts his blog was sent a letter from Herbert Richardson on March 21 threatening legal action against the company and Anderson if any defamatory comments about Richardson and the press are posted on the site. Kristine Hunt, who commented on the blog, is also the subject of legal action by Richardson. The threatening letter is posted here:
