The Best of Hubbard
Classic Hubbard, read and performed well
Not "better"--primarily because this is an abridgment--but perhaps "preferable" for modern story lovers because the reader, Roddy McDowall, sells the story so well.
The reading itself, the mystery, the fear (!), the lead up to a terrific ending.
This rates as one of McDowall's best readings, easily. (Though he's always great.)
No. But the abridgment is alright.
This is classic Hubbard written during his most prolific writing period. He tackled every fictional genre from alternate history to westerns to fantasy tales to romances. This was the golden era of pulp magazines and early sf collections. Unfortunate, Hubbard's "Dianetics" and Scientology in general have all but obliterated knowledge of, access to, and interest in, his best work. Kudos to Audible for presenting this.
