    This one is my favorite

    Of the new L. Ron Hubbard Golden Age of Stories Pulp Classic series this one is my favorite so far. It's a terrific read and also a fantastic E-Book. The book is an exiting page turner, pure unabashed adventure science fiction at it's best. The audio book surprised me with the level of quality book. I have been horribly dissapointed by audio books in the past but I could not more strongly recommend this one.

    Although L. Ron Hubbard wrote in many genres, he was best known

    Although L. Ron Hubbard wrote in many genres, he was best known for his science fiction and fantasy. "The Great Secret" was originally published in Science Fiction Stories in April, 1943. The story centers around Fanner Marston, a greedy and power-lust individual who is in quest of the great secret; a secret which could make him ruler of the universe if discovered. Fanner crash lands near Parva, a magical city that myths foretell holds that secret. Being the sole survivor of a dangerous and risky journey, he believes the secret will be his. When Fanner finally finds both the city and the great secret, was it folly or worth the risk of death? As an added bonus, the science fiction stories, "Space Can," "The Beast," and "The Slaver" are also included in this pulp.

    Good pulp fiction

    I enjoy reading pulp fiction and I appreciate actions that Adventure House, Vintage Crime and Galaxy Publishing are taking to bring it back for us to read. I think the use of the original pulp cover art in the Galaxy line is exceptional and the stories in "The Great Secret" were a delight to read -- there are actually 4 stories in this book. I really enjoyed the short story "The Slaver." It was a good combination of science fiction, overcoming insurmountable odds and a bit of a love story all in one.

    Just a great story!

    I read this story and thought to myself, what a lesson to be learned and all from a science fiction story. Great entertainment, just pure fun to read! I have to say that this series has been a rocket ride so far. I've read all 5 of these. I hope more are coming out soon! I'm looking for them.
