About 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.

This is a true classic of the genre. Imagine leaving Earth in a spaceship and returning a few weeks later but what you find is that a few decades have actually passed on your home planet. That can pose a serious problem, especially when the person in question, Alan Corday, is kidnapped and forced into service on the space vessel while his fiancée remains behind. This is a fast-moving tale that deals with the consequences of speed-of-light travel very well. Highly recommended.
Time seems to stand still as one listens to the engrossing tale of something that may be possible, may be improbable, and may not be very desirable. My favorite character is Alan Corday, which was wonderfully portrayed. I highly recommend this CD!
Dang this stuff is expensive . Wonder who gets the money ?
