There has got to be a better way to make money

Harlan Ellison and Robin Williams discuss L. Ron Hubbard; fascinating both for the subject in hand - Hubbard's electric typewriter, for instance - and for a glimpse of the Hydra Club and life as an sf writer in the 1950s. Ellison offers his usual hyper-caffeinated restraint. It turns out Lester Del Ray had been a stump minister when he was young. LRH complained he was breaking his ass writing and could not keep it up for ever.

"There has got to be a better way to make money."
