Reviews


L. Ron Hubbard. Galaxy, $9.95 trade paper (136p) ISBN 978-1-59212-335-3
The three stories reprinted in this volume are solid examples of what passed
for thrilling adventures (not coincidentally the name of the pulp fiction
magazine in which two of them appeared) in the pre-Indiana Jones days. In
the title tale, an expedition to the Pakistan desert to locate the lost loot of
Alexander the Great erupts in murder and mayhem when greed gets the better
of its members. "Price of a Hat," set in revolutionary Russia, concerns a
Cossack hat that carries a secret so significant a dozen people die trying to
acquire it. "Starch and Stripes" tells of a Marine officer at a Caribbean outpost
whose scheme to apprehend a wily bandit is nearly undone by corps
bureaucracy. Though minimally plotted and matter-of-factly narrated, all three
stories have the action, violence, and derring-do that made pulp fiction the
escapist entertainment of its day. - Publishers Weekly

"As with any well written story these stories will sweep you away and take you to these lands and leave you on the edge of your seat the whole way."--Gil Wilson

"
"The title story in this trio of Hubbard's pulp fiction (all of them published in 1936) has a very strong Indiana Jones feel to it, even though it predates Indy by nearly five decades....an exciting story, told at a brisk clip, with characters and dialogue that keep readers glued to the page: Hubbard at his best." Booklist

"Offers further evidence of Hubbard's pulp-action mastery." Ellery Queen"
