"It’s time for more action and adventure from one of the most prolific writers of our time, L Ron Hubbard. In their continuing effort to produce some 200 of Hubbard’s golden age stories, Galaxy Audio is releasing While Bugles Blow. This is another of Hubbard’s far-flung adventures featuring battles in far off places, a dashing young soldier, and a damsel in distress (or is she?).
"Here we find a small detachment of the French Foreign Legion, along with a young American Lieutenant, at an outpost deep within Berber territory. There is a largely peaceful existence between the soldiers and the locals, but it is an uneasy peace that hangs by a thread. It would take but a mere push in one direction or the other to topple the truce and begin an all out war. That mere push comes in the form of a beautiful Jeppa woman who is captured and sold into slavery. When the American lieutenant rescues the woman and brings her into the outpost, the balance is upset and the battle is on. In what feels like the last stand of the Alamo, a small handful of Legionairres must hold the fort against a couple thousand frenzied Berbers.
"As with all of the stories from Galaxy Audio’s Golden Age Stories collection, While Bugles Blow is complete with stunning cinema-quality music and sound effects, as well as a fantastic cast of voice actors. The cast includes the voice talents of Jim Mexkimen, R F Daley, Richard Rocco, Christina Huntington, and Phil Proctor." —Audiobook Heaven
“Hubbard wrote adventure, westerns, thrillers, and crime-espionage as well as sf—and they reveal both the range and quality of the author’s work…. Even a sampling of Galaxy’s catalog makes it clear that pulp-fiction devotees need to put Hubbard’s works on their must-read lists.” —Booklist
"a series not to be missed by any true pulp-fiction fan." —Comics Buyers Guide
"L. Ron Hubbard was a master storyteller and a major literary figure in the 'Golden Age' of pulp magazine publishing.... A master author in all of the diverse and varied action-adventure genres, these three newly reprinted titles will be especially welcome by those already familiar with Hubbard's work -- and serve as an admirable and highly recommended introduction for those new to the 'Golden Age' of pulp magazine fiction!" —The Midwest Book Review
"Crossing multiple genres, the stories are jam-packed with vibrant plot elements and typically center on a homegrown American hero, a parade of multiethnic villains straight out of central casting, and the requisite damsel in distress or femme fatale." —Library Journal
"Each of these of these outstanding audio books are two hour productions characterized by talented multi-cast performances, which are enhanced with impressive special effects and thematic music. Flawless technical recordings, each and every one of these very special audio books provides the listener with a true 'theatre of the mind' experience and is enthusiastically recommended." —Midwest Book Review
