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."

Reviews


"Originally published in 1939, this Hubbard tale takes listeners to the South Seas, where Billy Newman has purchased his own island at a bargain rate. Unfortunately, the island is dominated by natives who believe he is the source of their ill will. His only choice is to sacrifice a woman to their god or await their wrath against him. Read by a large cast, the story features brilliant performances by Karen Black, Jim Meskimen, Noelle North, R.F. Daley and Christina Huntington. The recording is chock-full of background sound effects that create an almost theatrical atmosphere and also features a rousing musical score. Two of Hubbard's other short stories--'The Room' and 'He Didn't Like Cats'--also get full-cast treatments in this package." - Publishers Weekly
"This is a title in an ongoing series of full-cast audiobooks featuring stories from the golden age of science fiction written by L. Ron Hubbard. The production quality is simply excellent, with sound effects and a full cast performing all the roles. The stories are pulp fiction churned out quickly for low-paying magazines of the time. All three in the collection are fantasy tales. In Danger in the Dark (1939) a man named Billy Newman, confronts a god in the Philippines. The Room (1942) is a ghost story, and He Didn t Like Cats (1942) is about a many who doesn t like cats, and pays for it. The packaging is attractive and includes a booklet filled with pictures and biographical information on the author." AudioFile"
