Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"One of the great pulp writers with colorful prose, lively action writing, exotic locales, fresh variation on standard characters and situations, and well-constructed plots." —Ellery Queen

"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

"Excellent pick for anyone who loves pulp fiction." —Midwest Book Review

“From the Golden Age series, much of Hubbard’s most engaging and, for lack of a better word, truly fun works are appearing in print once again.” —Luke Reviews

"Hubbard is always a quick, fun read. Fans of pulp writing will eat these up."—Library Journal

"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

"The stories' fast-moving pace is sure to keep listeners enthralled. Great fun for nostalgia buffs; recommended for tweens and up." —Library Journal

"A spectacular degree of realism. For anyone enjoying adventures." —Library Journal

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.
