Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Hubbard wrote adventure, westerns, thrillers, and crime-espionage as well as sf—and they reveal both the range and quality of the author’s work…. Even a sampling of Galaxy’s catalog makes it clear that pulp-fiction devotees need to put Hubbard’s works on their must-read lists.” —Booklist

"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 and is enthusiastically recommended." —Midwest Book Review

"BEST AUDIOBOOKS—FULL CAST, GOLDEN AGE STORIES SERIES L. Ron Hubbard, Performed by a Full Cast" —AudioFile Magazine

"He wrote Westerns, swashbucklers, air adventure, mysteries, espionage thrillers, science fiction, fantasy, tales of the Orient, sea tales, and even Yukon tales in the tradition of Jack London." —Antique Trader

“…one of the great pulp writers, with colorful prose, lively action writing, exotic locales, fresh variations on standard characters and situations, and well-constructed plots.” —Ellery Queen

    Four Great Mysteries

    Galaxy Press has been releasing the short stories written by author L. Ron Hubbard that were published during the golden age under the Stories of a Golden Age line of paperbacks and audiobooks. They nicely sent me a free audiobook of the "Killer's Law" for this review.

    "Killer's Law" was originally published in the September 1947 issue of New Detective Magazine, where Sheriff Kyle travels from Deadeye, Nevada to Washington D.C. to personally deliver evidence against a rich copper king to Senator Meringue. Suddenly, Kyle is knocked unconscious. When he awakes he is surrounded by policemen asking questions and reporters snapping pictures. It seems that the Senator was murdered and Kyle is holding the murder weapon.

    This is an intriguing mystery with a major twist in the first few minutes. Kyle, the hero, must try to prove his innocence without having an alibi or no memory of what happened to the Senator. He must use his detective wits to solve the case.

    There are three additional mystery stories in this audiobook.

    The second is called "They Killed Him Dead," which finds detective Careful Cassidy catching a killer red-handed at a crime scene, but the problem is that he didn't actually see the suspect kill the victim. There is also no motivation for the killing and no murder weapon.

    ""They Killed Him Dead" is a humorous mystery tale about an old-fashioned, respected homicide cop who keeps bring in the wrong suspects in one night. Everyone at the police station is now laughing at him, but Cassidy is determined to catch the killer.

    Officer Tommy Farrell dreams of being on the homicide squad in "Mad Dog Murder," but he is stuck sitting in car 17 with his partner, Butch Handland. That is until he gets a call about a mad dog being lost in an apartment where a man, Uncle Meyers, has been bitten by the Pekingese named Toto. Tommy takes a shine to the dog's owner, June Beach, who claims that the dog does not have rabies, despite the fact that the dog is foaming at the mouth. Tommy and Butch take the dog in to be checked out and learn a startling truth.

    "Mad Dog Murder" is not your typical police procedure story, as there is humor and a taste of romance.

    Hamm Logan is left with his sergeant at the police station for the 6 PM to 6 AM shift in "The Blow Torch Murders," in which several known criminals come into the station and volunteer to be arrested. Weasel admits that he stole a car, Chick breaks a window, and Papa Johnson and Joey the Mick admits that they just assaulted a woman. At around midnight, a lawyer named Lambert wants the men to be release due to the lack of evidence. Hamm wants to know what the hell is going on.

    He soon realizes that the men were creating alibis as their mob boss, Dude MacFarlane, has been found dead. Someone had put a blow torch down his mouth and set him on fire.

    Once again Galaxy Press has put together four great tales (about 30 minutes each) with an amazing voice cast and sound effects. The main characters are die hard cops that go by the book! Each plot is completely unique with twists and turns around every corner. I had a blast listening to each story and I recommend it to all mystery lovers.
