Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Hubbard's stories of Americans in the French Foreign Legion positively sparkle in audio format. Plots, murder, secret treasure, and damsels in distress abound in the three stories in this collection. The full cast delights as the throngs of morally shaky French soldiers and vicious Berber villains. Michael Yurchak voices the American soldiers thrown into this mix in "Hell's Legionnaire" and "The Barbarians." His vocal swagger matches the badboy characters perfectly." —Audio File

"The pulp fiction of L. Ron Hubbard is finding new audiences all over the world." —Mystery Scene

“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

"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

"Demonstrating his unique ability to relate even the most complicated story with a keen eye for detail and realism, Hubbard’s stunning writing ability and creative imagination set him apart as one of the greatest literary figures of the 20th century. ...the story captivates thoroughly." —Publishers Weekly starred review

"Hubbard’s dialogue uses the lingo of the time, and the production includes background sounds and music from the period. All the narrators do a good job keeping listeners engaged." —AudioFile Magazine

"This tale is a splendid audio, filled with sound effects, Asian-inspired music, and lively characterizations." —Booklist

"World War II adventure about competing American airplane designers ...[the] test pilots lives are in jeopardy at the hands of a Nazi infiltrator...." —Booklist

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.
