Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Enthusiastically recommended 'theater of the mind experience." —Mid West Book

"Who could have guessed that pulp fiction would make a comeback, finding new life in the form of delightfully over-the-top audio theater performances? Someone at Galaxy Audio obviously knew, because 150 stories later, the “Golden Age Stories” have been made enduring all over again." AudioFile Magazine

“Hubbard’s trio offer vintage action, adventure, and romance….These full-cast productions quickly become addictive. Their brevity also makes for perfect commuter fare. Anyone who enjoys hard-boiled pulp writing or old-time radio will be rewarded.”—Library Journal

"Errol Flynn would feel quite at home in Hubbard’s ripping yarn… replete with swordplay, marooning and naval battles with ships lost in the roiling fog of cannon smoke.  Supplementing the illustrated text are an extensive glossary of nautical and period terms." —Publishers Weekly

"This is a gem in American pulp fiction…" —Audiofile magazine

"Great escapist fun." —AudioFile Magazine

“Broken wings, strong winds, and eye-popping storms are the audio backdrop to the seamless performance.”—AudioFile

"Has a very strong Indiana Jones feel to it, even though it predates Indy by nearly five decades....an exciting story, told at a brisk clip, with characters and dialogue that keep readers glued to the page: Hubbard at his best." —Booklist
