L. Ron Hubbard in the Golden Age of Pulp Fiction

L. Ron HubbardWith 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.

"The fascinating thing to me is that L. Ron Hubbard's fantasy stories, first published fifty to sixty years ago, are not dated in style, content or language. They are as freash and interesting for times right now as they were when he conceived them." -- Anne McCaffrey

"A master of the fast action short story." -- Robert A. Heinlein

"A super-writer of the Golden Age of Science Fiction." -- A.E. van Vogt

"A steady diet of fantasy such as 'Dangerous Dimension'... I assure you that I laughed myself sick over it. Some more from L. Ron Hubbard, please." -- Isaac Asimov

"...a huge capacity for big adventure, big color, very dramatic colorful locales, urgent suspense and fascinating characters with fascinating histories." -- Tim Powers.

Publisher's Weekly gives a starred review and says about Orders Is Orders:
"Demonstrating his unique ability to relate even the most complicated story with a keen eye for detail and realism, Hubbard's stunning writing ability and creative imagination set him apart as one of the greatest literary figures of the 20th century."

"One of my all-time favorite writers! On par with Jack London, Edgar Rice Burroughs and Dashiell Hammett." George Clayton Johnson author of Logan's Run.

"L. Ron Hubbard does what good science fiction always does: gives the reader a healthy sense of wonder. And why shouldn't he? After all, Hubbard helped invent modern science fiction." -- Robert J. Sawyer.
