Stephen's Book Club has determined that Regnery is one of the rare books not destroying America and has spared it from the flames.


Regnery is a publishing house that keeps America alive in book form.

While books are un-American, Regnery only publishes books that meet the highest of truthiness, like The Holy Bible.

The world is a much better place with Regnery books on the shelf, working their way into America's classrooms and eventually into history books as reference sources.

Authors in Regnery's StableEdit

Regnery has many great American authors in it's stable:

wazzup Regnery's Royalty's Policy For AuthorsEdit

Regnery's payment agreements with the authors whose works they own is far-reaching and forward-thinking. It is the epitome of Free Market capitalism!

The authors argue that in reducing royalty payments, the publisher is maximizing its profits and the profits of its parent company at their expense.

Traditionally, authors receive a 15 percent royalty based on the cover price of a hardcover title after they have sold enough copies to cover the cost of the advance they receive upon signing a contract with a publisher. (Authors whose books are sold at steep discounts or to companies that handle remaindered copies receive lower royalties.)

In Regnery’s case, according to the lawsuit, the publisher sells books to sister companies, including the Conservative Book Club, which then sells the books to members at discounted prices, “at, below or only marginally above its own cost of publication.” In the lawsuit the authors say they receive “little or no royalty” on these sales because their contracts specify that the publisher pays only 10 percent of the amount received by the publisher, minus costs — as opposed to 15 percent of the cover price — for the book.

Mr. Miniter said that meant that although he received about $4.25 a copy when his books sold in a bookstore or through an online retailer, he only earned about 10 cents a copy when his books sold through the Conservative Book Club or other Eagle-owned channels. “The difference between 10 cents and $4.25 is pretty large when you multiply it by 20,000 to 30,000 books,” Mr. Miniter said. “It suddenly occurred to us that Regnery is making collectively jillions of dollars off of us and paying us a pittance.” He added: “Why is Regnery acting like a Marxist cartoon of a capitalist company?”
