Sander Hicks is an American peace activist and publisher.[1][2]

Soft Skull Press

In 1999, Soft Skull Press won awards for "Outstanding Independent Publisher of the Year" when Hicks was at the helm. The award followed Hicks's acquisition and publication of Fortunate Son by James Hatfield, a biography of George W. Bush.

Fortunate Son

The book Fortunate Son by James Hatfield was a clip job (a summary of publicly available information). It contained a story about George W. Bush's cocaine use in younger years; that story was put in the book at the request of the initial publisher (St. Martin's Press), who pulled the book. It had other information that was not known to a wider audience at the time but the cocaine aspect got almost all media attention. Soon after initial release, The Dallas Morning News reported that Hatfield was a paroled felon who had been convicted in 1988 of paying a hit man $5,000 to murder his former boss with a car bomb. Hatfield (who wrote the unofficial biography of Patrick Stewart before) and his lawyer in the documentary Horns and Halos speculate that he was set up with the contract for writing the book.[3]

September 11

In 2005, Sander Hicks wrote The Big Wedding: 9/11, the Whistle-Blowers, and the Cover-Up critical of the US government's official narrative.

In 2006, he wrote New York FBI: In Bed With Mob & CIA in The New York Megaphone alleging that Lindley DeVecchio was part of the cabal, and that he arranged for Richard Taus to be framed after Taus refused to stay silent about what he had discovered of the group.[4]
