Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Fans of space operas and old action-adventure radio serials should appreciate this rousing drama, which appeared in a pulp in the 1950s. It's 3975, and civilization has spread out among the stars. Unfortunately, people still don't get along, so an Arbiter has been selected. When it seems that the Arbiter may be despotic and responsible for countless evils, Christopher Randall Kellan, a 30-year-old veteran of the spaceways, is chosen to seek out the mysterious Arbiter. As he undertakes his dangerous mission, you may believe you have time traveled to your youth and are listening to an exciting radio serial, with Chinese and Hispanic villains sneering while the stalwart, red-haired hero comes up with new super-scientific inventions to defeat them. The large cast employs many voices and accents, obviously enjoying themselves to the hilt. Readers will, too. Hubbard's dialogue-heavy tale makes for lively listening, and though there's no time for subtlety here, the author's descriptions of everything from space outposts to a simple game of chess are remarkably colorful."  —Publishers Weekly

Meet the Author

With 19 New York Times bestsellers and more than 230 million copies of his works in circulation, L. Ron Hubbard is among the most acclaimed and widely read authors of our time. As a leading light of American Pulp Fiction through the 1930s and '40s, he is further among the most influential authors of the modern age. Indeed, from Ray Bradbury to Stephen King, there is scarcely a master of imaginative tales who has not paid tribute to L. Ron Hubbard.
