Overview

After the death of his father in an air stunt, ace pilot Caution Jones left flying behind. But, like Robert Redford in The Great Waldo Pepper, he’s about to find that if you want to get anywhere, you have to throw caution to the wind. His airline company’s up for a monster contract, and the race is on to get it . . . even if he has to climb back into the cockpit. The competition is deadly . . . but it’s his beautiful co-pilot who may get him to take the biggest risk of all. "Primo pulp fiction." —Booklist

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Aging gunfighters, fancy flyers, noble officers, and rowdy rebels can all be found in Galaxy Press's latest four entries in its "Stories of the Golden Age" series, also available in trade paperback. Despite the titles' distinct differences, all are rife with action and adventure and laced with melodramatic overtones. All except Hostage to Death include additional stories besides the title feature. While each delivers its own slice of genre fiction dredged up from the pulp magazine in which it was published, together they represent an impressive and stylistically similar whole. From the musical introduction to the final credits, these full-cast, sound effects-laden productions will engage listeners of all ages, particularly fans of old-time radio, Westerns, genre fiction, action and adventure, and full-cast performances.

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.
