    Walker Vs. Pelican

    I have been defrauded. I need your help. An outfit named Pelican Publishing Company misused a legal contract to steal the rights to my books, my inventory, and place me deeply into debt to them! For details of the theft, please send an E-mail to walkersbooks@cox.net <mailto:walkersbooks@cox.net>.
