Editorial Reviews

Midwest Book Review
On the Writers of the Future and The Stories from the Golden Age--Four of their new audio book titles, brilliantly showcasing Hubbard's storytelling talents, are "Cattle King For A Day" (9781592123650, $9.95) which was originally published in the March 1937 issue of "All Western Magazine", also includes the backup short 'Come And Get It' a; "All Frontiers Are Jealous" (9781592123384, $9.95), originally published in the June 1937 issue of "Five-Novels Monthly" and is an action/adventure yarn about establishing the Anglo-Egyptian Railroad while rescuing a fair young maiden from evil whites and dangerous native tribesmen; "The Trail Of The Red Diamonds" (9781592123261, $9.95) originally published in the January 1935 issue of "Thrilling Adventures" and which (along with the backup short story 'Hurricane's Roar" is set in China); and "Hurtling Wings" (9781592123032, $9.95) offering an aviation oriented action/adventure in an era of 'wooden planes and iron men'. Each of these of these outstanding audio books are two hour productions characterized by talented multi-cast performances, which are enhanced with impressive special effects and thematic music. Flawless technical recordings, each and every one of these very special audio books provides the listener with a true 'theatre of the mind' experience

One of the highlights of the end of Summer is the receipt of the new WOTF volume. This year’s collection is another vast array of topics and styles. My favorites are as varied as the topics. There is something here for everyone and there is plenty here to give you extremely good value for your hard earned buck. Start out your harvest season with this cornucopia of great reading.

Cattle King for a Day: "Jim Meskiman, Michael Yurchak & R. F. Daley. This audio-book could easily be made into a film by Leonard DeCaprio. Really lends itself. The rich text sounds authentic and brings the listener into the old west and the lawlessness of environs. Amazing how L. Ron could see with his typewriter the quality of all that was wild and tough to stomach. The voices enacted the audio play and perhaps denote Gregory Peck as judge impression. Kind of surprised by colorful language. But if not from L. Ron then it’s just real talk for cowboys. All in all a nice distraction for a long drive (about two hours running time) or for those who need a book read to ‘em."
Publishers Weekly
When Chinook Shannon goes out West to claim his inheritance, he finds it usurped by a local bully and a banker. With few options afforded him, he must fight back in classic Western style, which includes lots of punches, gunfire, and slick banter. Along with the story, this audiobook also includes "Come and Get It," a similar tale of a youth reclaiming his inheritance in the West. The stories are loaded with a full cast, sound effects, and musical score, and are narrated by R.F. Daley, who provides a strong deep projection and the zeal of an old-time radio host. Even though a few characters are thin caricatures, their voices sound genuine, and the excellent sound effects contribute to creating a more fleshed-out story. A Galaxy hardcover. (Sept.)

"If ever a young cowhand needs both luck and grit it's Chinook Shannon in L. Ron Hubbard's Cattle King for a Day. With just 24 hours to kill a foreclosure on his grandfather's ranch, Shannon is drygulched by unknowns and bamboozled by a crooked banker. Here is nonstop action with a Mark Twain twist."  —True West Magazine
