"The full-cast performance and sound effects make the stories that much more compelling. The sound effects are engaging but never distracting, and the musical score hints at adventure themes and old-time mystery radio shows." —Publishers Weekly
"a series not to be missed by any true pulp-fiction fan." —Comic Buyers Guide
“…Hubbard was one of the country’s most prolific pulp science fiction writers, and this book (To the Stars) is one of his best.” —Alan Cheuse, NPR's All Things Considered
“One 1948 and two 1950 sci-fi stories from L. Ron Hubbard. Innocent & enjoyable vintage romps.” —Review DuJour (Twitter)

I have read a few of Hubbard’s short stories I have to say that this one was my favorite ...well at least the first two stories are. It surprised me because I did not think I would find anything of Hubbard I would like but the first two stories are different.
A poor farmer leaves his home hoping to sell the food he has grown. On his travel to the city he comes to a crossroad. Not knowing where to go he sits for lunch. As he stays at the crossroad strange and unusual people stop by and barter with him.
An old woman is offered a deal from a angel. She will give her youth and everything she wants for 2 days but after those days she will turned back to her present circumstances.
The Devil’s Rescue
A survivor of a boat wreck is found by another ship. They bring him back to health only to hope to imprison him on the ship.
As I said the first two stories are in my opinion better than the last. They are more like fables where the last one is written differently. I feel like first two stories you have a little fun reading them. Devil’s Rescue you kind of have to work your brain harder to understand what is going on. I would recommend this book for fantasy lovers.
