Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Hubbard’s classic pulp fiction tale was originally published in 1943 but shows no signs of age." —Publisher Weekly starred review

"A ‘must’ for his legions of fans and an impressive tribute to his storytelling skills in the heyday of pulp magazine fiction!” —The Midwest Book Review

"Shows just how imaginative Hubbard really was, and it was a real treat to review these stories. They were a pure delight to read." —Large Print Reviews

"Once again another collection of larger than life stories to lose yourself for a couple of hours."—Gil-T’s Pleasure Blog

"Vibrant and entertaining stories, back in print as 'time lost' classics and the enjoyment of a whole new generation of appreciative readers." —Midwest Book Review

"… this is a real corker, pulp fiction at its most entertaining." —Booklist

"Sheer joy, pleasure, and fun that good escapist fiction is all about. This is a wonderful edition to a solid series.” – Luke Reviews

"Hubbard was a first-rate pulp writer...He could go up against any of these giants [Hammett, Max Brand, J.P. Lovecraft, Edgar Rice Burroughs, Louis L’Amour]." —Locus Magazine

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.

Greed is the reason for this collection of worthless rip-off stories. No redeeming value.
DrBobCF More than 1 year ago
Mr. Hubbard was in dire need of a ruthless editor. His books are far too long because of his "prose". You loose interest in the story because it soon becomes too much of a chore to plow through it all. The plot is as bad as the writing. Save yourself from blindness and avoid this series.  If it were possible to give a negative score, I would. Sadly, this is not one of the reviews written in jest.
