Convicted Bomber Publishes Book From Prison

Feb 23, 2013

Convicted bomber Eric Rudolph has published his autobiography from prison, with his brother's help.

Rudolph's work is available online from a website that lets writers publish their own books for a price.

Daniel K. Rudolph is listed as publisher. He's best known for cutting off his hand and videotaping it in what he called a message to the media and FBI while police searched for his brother.

Eric Rudolph pleaded guilty to setting off a bomb during the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta, and admitted to bombing a Birmingham abortion clinic in 1998. Two people died in the blasts.

A prosecutor says authorities will look into seizing any money Rudolph makes from the book. The work explains his motive in the bombings and recounts his capture after years on the run.
