Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Dead Men Kill is Frightful fun from yesteryear." —Fangoria

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

“Hubbard’s rollicking horror yarn just happens to tap into the current craze for zombies….This fun, campy novella reflects a contemporary revenge vibe felt by those who wouldn’t mind dispatching a few zombies to punish criminally inclined businessmen.” —Publishers Weekly

"Production quality is exceptionally good on this recording. Sound effects and music add to the presentation. Listeners will have a genuine sense that they are back in the Golden Age of radio.” —The Strand Magazine

"Pitch perfect performances...Fans of old-time radio dramas and those familiar with Galaxy Press’ Stories from the Golden Age series will be pleased.” —Booklist

"...fast-paced high seas action yarn.  Contraband cargo (heroin) and the yacht owner’s beautiful daughter add spice to this taut pulp melodrama.”—Publishers Weekly

"The actors' intentionally broad performances are matched with excellent sound effects, including raindrops, thunder, and footsteps in a 'rain-buffeted darkness' scene and punches, grunts, and gunshots in a fight segment. The entertaining story is vividly re-created for fans of Hubbard's pulp fiction."—Booklist

"Though the plot kicks off right away, the production increasingly gains traction as more of the cast chime in to layer the tale. Recommended." —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.
