I came across the following titles while brousing books on Powells.com. They are all published by BOOKS LLC which I assume is somekind of self publishing thing. No authors are listed. These are not the only TKD books being published by this company. They seem to all have been published May 2010.

Taekwondo Kwans: Chung Do Kwan, Moo Duk Kwan, Song Moo Kwan, Korean Academy of Taekwondo, Oh Do Kwan, Kwans, Jidokwan, Chang Moo Kwan ISBN13: 9781155497372

Organisations Based in Seoul: International Taekwon-Do Federation, Kukkiwon, Korea Hapkido Federation, Pan Asian Boxing Association

A couple of titles sound suspiciously similar to Len Losik's book (which are truly awful and one should avoid completely).

Does anyone have any other information on these?

I do not have any info on these books, but would be interested in finding out more.
Also I have seen many mistakes that Mr. Losik has made in some of his written work. What else can you tell me about him or his work?

I emailed Mr. Losik and asked him about why he had no listed references. He said that he shouldn't have to list his references because he did not want to give any of his work to other researchers. He went on for two paragraphs about other people stealing his work and that it includes editors. He stated that people changed his "words" to give it some other meaning. I asked for an example and he could not offer me any. He seems to be proud of poor research and grammar. He has been self publishing his work. They appear to be printed on his home printer and self bound. He was polite but did not seem to care that his "work" was a poor representation of authorship or research. I asked for just one source and he could not or would not volunteer that.
