Take the classic cops and robbers story, make the cop a Royal Canadian Mountie and the robber, a ruthless, psychopathic killer whose team of dogs for his sled is really wolves, who will eat Mounties, and you have a a great variation on a familiar theme. Oh yeah, add in a beautiful woman.
The latest Galaxy Press release of L. Ron Hubbard's Stories from the Golden Age packs a triple punch. This edition includes not only 1935's "Yukon Madness" but "The Cossack" and "The Small Boss of Nunaloha." All three stories amply demonstrate Hubbard's natural flair for pacing. As I've mentioned in other reviews, Hubbard was a master of all genres and his pacing was often relentless. These are hardboiled classics. Hubbard's masculine prose nearly jumps from the page. I was particularly taken with "The Small Boss of Nunaloha" where Jim Lanridge is put through the ringer. These three stories have seldom, if ever, been reprinted since their original appearance and stand as shining examples on why Hubbard was so popular during his lifetime. These beautiful Galaxy Press editions are going far in reaffirming Hubbard's place as a Master American Storyteller. For those that prefer audio books you'll not be disappointed. Each audio book features a multicast performance with music and sound effects reminiscent of radio's golden age. Highly recommended!
