“There are countless consumers who have never been given the items they ordered. This is not an occasional failure on their part, but a way of business. They are fleecing fans, and that's shameful”.

- Better Business Bureau complaint against Conlan Press


  • “The problem is, if you buy it from Conlan Press, you might never get it. I know people who have been waiting for their purchases for /years/.” - druidsfire.dreamwidth.org/513333.html
  • “We waited and waited and waited, and kept corresponding, and then--nothing. I think we gave up after about a year and a half - I was really really disappointed with Conlan and I wouldn't recommend them to anyone.” - ellen-kushner.livejournal.com/255589.html


Dear robbed customers of Conlan Press:  WE NEED HELP!  

Connor Cochran is the operater/owner of Conlan Press.  He has taken our money for many years without producing goods.  When we complain, we get no goods or refunds.  There have been many excuses, for many years, and they keep changing. 

If angry victims buzz too loudly, Cochran blames them for causing problems.  Just watch how he reacts to these complaints!  Please share them and demand help NOW.

These titles have been sold and undelivered since 2006:

  • THE LAST UNICORN Audiobook — 8 CD Edition
  • THE LAST UNICORN Audiobook — MP3-on-CD Edition
  • TWO HEARTS — Collector's Illustrated Hardcover
  • WRITING SAREK — Hardcover Edition
  • ... and others ...


Goods are undelivered since 2006, while Cochran has been robbing us to make himself RICH.

In 2009, Cochran moved into a million-dollar home.  In 2011, he boasted about business expansion to Publisher's WeeklyIn 2013, he took control of the Last Unicorn movie for an international tour.  He boasted of a plan to spend "five million dollars".  BUT STILL NO GOODS!

Connor Cochran is a predator hiding behind Peter S. Beagle.

Cochran is exploiting fan love for a poor, innocent writer.  Peter Beagle appears unaware of the scams, because he only wants to write, and avoids business.  Since the 1970's, Beagle was exploited by businessmen who didn't pay him.  In the 2000's, Cochran fought them to take control of Beagle's rights.  Then he switched exploitation from Beagle to his fans.  

Cochran constantly acts as if Beagle is in poverty, and begs us to support him.  He excuses non-delivery by blaming the death of Beagle's mother in 2008.  The excuses always play on our heartstrings.  


It gets worse:  Cochran's partner is a disbarred lawyer who scammed $10,000 from the estate of John Steinbeck.

Cochran is aided by disbarred former attorney, Charles E. PetitPetit is Charlie@conlanpress , and this names him as Cochran's attorney: - file770.com/?p=7229  It's ILLEGAL for a disbarred lawyer to give legal services.  Petit lost his law license for ripping off $10,000 from the estate of John Steinbeck. 

Petit's court discipline record 

“License loss should not be end of story”


Is Cochran in the business of taking estates from old people?

 Conlan Press authors: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conlan_Press

  • Author Parke Godwin “was placed in a close care facility in 2012 due to a decline in his long- and short-term memory. He died in 2013.”  Cochran commented: “I’m handling most things for him based on the Power of Attorney for Health Care that he filled out years ago, and we’re taking the steps necessary to get me appointed as his guardian and conservator.” - weirdtalesmagazine.com/2012/08/15/a-message-from-the-editor-parke-godwin/
  • Author “Edgar Pangborn… became particularly close to Peter S. Beagle. After Edgar's death that connection was maintained by Edgar's sole heir, his older sister Mary… in February 2003 she bequeathed the entire Pangborn estate to him.” - en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edgar_Pangborn


Cochran has been sued for scamming publishers and writers:


Cochran also ripped off $10,000 in unpaid wages from a worker. They were consulted for this report.  The Conlan Press insider shares this description of Cochran:

  • "Makes promises to everyone that he has no intention of keeping: sales, pay"

  • "Used money gained for Peter to do things: go out to eat, take trips"

  • "Claims to be what he is not: there to help Peter, generate income for Peter"

  • "Takes on more than what he can do: financially, professionally, personally"

  • "Spends time being overwhelmed instead of attacking the problems he creates"

  • "Refuses real solutions to his problems for organization, time management, aid in completion of projects."


Cochran formed multiple corporations to hide his activities: 

  • Connor Cochran Inc. is listed as suspended by the CA Secretary of State. 

  • Avicenna Developmentis suspended but still used for business.

  • Conlan Press is active with the CA Secretary of State.


Demand solutions NOW from Connor Cochran.  BEWARE of Conlan Press.  Please spread this report among fans, to protect each other - and writers!
