In Peter’s lawsuit for fraud and elder abuse against his ex manager Connor Cochran, part of the problem is that he isn’t getting paid for sales. YOU can help to win justice. It doesn’t matter whether you got what you paid for or got scammed like so many other victims. If you paid, your voice is needed.
Sales from the Last Unicorn Tour, Conlan Press, and ebooks at Amazon need to be documented. If you paid FROM DECEMBER 2015 TO THE PRESENT, please email Peter’s lawyer (with records if possible): firstname.lastname@example.org
The judge needs proof that Peter’s works are being sold during the lawsuit. (Sales like hardcopy books from other honest publishers like Tachyon are excepted.)

Injustice – 12 years and counting.
Are you one of many victims wondering why you never got Last Unicorn Tour merchandise you paid for? Remember how Connor Cochran kept promising everything by “spring” of 2016 while taking more and more “pre-orders” (notice he removed the date)… but it just isn’t happening?
I'm really disappointed in @ConlanPress for stealing our money and never sending us the bluray. Even after multiple e-mails from my bf :/

“On May 16, 2015… I purchased what was referred to as the “Bigger Better Beagle Bundle” from Conlan Press… We (the audience) were told that this “bundle” was still in the process of being published but would ship no later than January 2016… I never received an invoice either on paper or through email for this “bundle,” which was the first red flag that I had been scammed. January came and went and there was no package shipped to my house and no communication from Conlan Press about why there may have been a delay. I have tried to contact the company numerous times but have never received a reply.” – Customer in Middletown RI – May 2016
When Cochran seized control of Peter’s career and life, fans were a target for Cochran’s predation. Dominating Peter was the way to milk the fanbase since 2004.
In 2014 when this expose came out, the small victims were revealed first. Our expose was the original source about “pre-sale” scams that built a pyramid of new scams on top of old ones.
He’s still making fake “pre sales” while people are still expecting to get goods they paid for 12 years ago!
We didn’t really know how bad it was – the full story was just predicted in 2014. Confirmation has come from everywhere. A year later, Peter’s story broke open because we peeled back Cochran’s layers of distractions that he used to hide the cheating against fans. It took until 2016 to get headlines about Peter’s lawsuit. That was matched by the fraud lawsuit from the Last Unicorn tour investors, and much more coming out of the woodwork.
Cochran still pretends to be the victim. Everything was an accident and everyone else is “lying”. It worked for just as long as he could use Peter as a false front.
For years, Cochran has been incredibly canny about manipulating victims. He would do whatever it took to keep them separated and quiet – whether it meant sob stories that kept changing, giving people the run-around, buying them off with sweet talk, hiding and attacking their complaints, or threatening to retaliate against them personally. No matter what tactic he uses, SPEAK OUT!
The pretense is exposed but he won’t stop. They say possession is 9/10ths of the law… With Peter’s rights in his hands, and a movie to milk, the money is going to his lawyers to deny justice to everyone. It’s a David and Goliath situation for small fan and elderly writer alike.
This needs People Power. Please speak out and contact Peter’s lawyer to help.
There should be picket lines in front of any theater that would still help Cochran to push sales, without telling fans how their money is going to lawyers to attack Peter. Some theaters have shared Peter’s story. But one theater is helping Cochran to profit in Seattle this June.
“THE LAST UNICORN w/ Connor Cochran. This special screening brings producer Connor Conlon to Central Cinema, including a Q&A with the one person who may know more about this film than any other breathing soul on this planet.”
(Forget THE GUY WHO WROTE IT. With a misspelled name of a con artist who had zero to do with making the movie, do they have any clue at all?)
PAYING FOR THE MOVIE IS PAYING FOR ABUSE. Peter’s lawsuit gives documents about how Cochran tried to get doctors to fake evidence about his health. Cochran is still trying to use these lies to take away Peter’s rights.
Peter continues to be an active creator. On May 28, he appeared as guest of honor at Balticon in Baltimore MD with his friend, George R.R. Martin (Game of Thrones). He has a new book coming out. He isn’t helpless – he’s wronged.
