And the damage is just too costly when lives are at stake, especially when a villain known as "The Butcher" is allowed to rise up with fire and sword carving the way on his warpath for complete control of the nation.
When Dahlgren disappears— purportedly to find a mysterious aviator, the man called "Wind-Gone-Mad" who has always fought against the province warlords— he ignites a series of actions which just may spell disaster. "Turned out to be a fun adventure, but the best treat was that this audio book featured the first ever published story by L. Ron Hubbard (Tah)….This will be one of the most fun two hours you’ve ever spent. Enjoy!" —Gil Wilson
"Wind-Gone-Mad is an exciting saga set in the last days of pre-World War II China, where the stalwart Jim Dahlgren, representing the amalgamated Aeronautical Company, is one of the few who can stand against the ravenous warlord and would-be conqueror known as “The Butcher”. Also present are the stores Tah, Yellow Loot, and a preview of Golden Hell." —Midwest Book Review
"...rife with action and adventure." —Library Journal
The library of "Stories from the Golden Age" published by Galaxy Press features 153 stories in a medley of genres: science fiction, romance, fantasy, western, horror, and mystery by L. Ron Hubbard. Originally, Hubbard wrote in the 1930's and 1940's, but since pulps were printed on cheap paper, many disintegrated into dust. Galaxy Press has re-printed many of these stories for today's readers to re-live adventures and re-visit characters of a by-gone era.
In one of these tales, "Wind-Gone-Mad," the narrative takes place in China during the pre-World War II period. This story pits the protagonist, Jim Dahlgren who represents Amalgamated Aeronautical Company against a villain called "The Butcher" whose plan is to gain complete control of the nation. Dahlgren enlists the help of Wind-Gone-Mad who envisions a unified China that can "resist invasion from within and treason from without." Hubbard creates a raging battle between "The Butcher" and "Wind-Gone-Mad," which sets off a series of events that triggers a barrage of bombs bursting and aerial guns discharging which culminates in a surprise ending. Consider it a bonus because two other adventure stories are also included: "Tah" and "Yellow Loot."
