A Note From Lenny

I'm Lenny Schneir, Merlin Stone's life partner for 34 years.  To honor Merlin's memory and keep her legacy alive I have assembled, with the help of co-authors David B. Axelrod and Carol Thomas, this important book about Merlin's life.  It includes many unknown facts about Merlin as well as some previously unpublished writings and a re-printing of "Unraveling the Myth of Adam and Eve" from When God Was a Woman.
