REMINDER- Please contact Peter Beagle’s lawyer if you paid for his work during his lawsuit. Email firstname.lastname@example.org (with records if possible.) Peter isn’t being paid for sales of his work including at The Last Unicorn Tour, Conlan Press, ebooks on Amazon, and more. If you paid in December 2015 or after, please send support. (Remember that false retaliation claims against Peter and his lawyer were THROWN OUT of court, so we can support him to win his lawsuit without distractions.)
Latest news from SupportPeterBeagle.com
“Okay, fans of Peter S. Beagle, I have both good news and bad news for you. The bad news is that Peter is broke, due to the nefarious actions of Connor Cochran (who gets most of the money that is rightfully Peter’s by diverting it into his own pockets). Once Peter wins his lawsuit against Connor and his sham press, that will not be the situation, but it is sadly true now.
Before I tell you the good news, I’d like to thank all of you who’ve supported him in this effect to win back his name. He really appreciates it.
Now the good news. Peter has agreed to create brief original poems, story snippets, song lyrics — whatever he’s in the mood to write, but just for you. This is a unique offer! I know we all cherish our personally-signed books and such, but this is even better!
(A reminder is due here. Do not buy anything signed that Connor is selling, be they prints, TLU cels and so forth, as these monies go into his pockets, not Peter’s. The same holds true for any showings of The Last Unicorn that Connor is currently doing.)
This will be limited to 20 people maximum. The deal would be that the first 20 people who donate at least $150 will get an original, and unique to them, short tidbit personally from Peter by way of thanks. (Of course, this is non-exclusive; we want to be sure Peter retains his copyright to everything he writes.) The donor would be namechecked and the piece would be signed. It wouldn’t have to be fiction: a memory, a snippet, a song lyric. It would be new, nothing recycled. It would be at least a paragraph in length, but not more than a page.
If you feel like giving more, please do so. A hundred percent of these monies (less of course PayPal fees) will support Peter.
Use the Paypal button at top corner of the news at SupportPeterBeagle.com.
The fine print: include a note with your PayPal donation. The note must include your name and postal mailing address, as well as the statement that you would like to take advantage of this offer; if you want someone else’s name to be included in the piece (rather than your own), or if you have any other specific requests, say that as well. Please note that Peter is not guaranteeing that he will be able to fulfill any specific request, other than including a specified name in the finished work. If you’re not one of the first 20 people to respond to this, your money will be refunded.”

How is it that Connor can keep hosting events and selling merchandise in the author’s name? Why the heck can’t the court just order the guy to cease and desist until (at least) the conclusion of this case? A temporary restraining order would seem like common sense. This is bizarre….
Not a lawyer but I believe Cease and Desist is just a warning letter saying “we’re going to take legal action if you don’t stop” and it’s already well into the action. A restraining order I believe is something to do with personal safety not business.
What they would want is an injunction, apparently that is a possibility (maybe part of why they want to hear from customers) but it’s also not easy to justify. Could be that he is hiding evidence, or it’s a matter of resource allocation or both. (No need to prioritize it if the case is proceeding to a conclusion anyways; it may ultimately just weigh against his defense and for the damages against him). I’m guessing it’s just another sign of what a renegade psycho we’re looking at, will not stop at anything to grab money while the window is still open to grab.
