It's a sea story with pirates, damsels in distress, betrayal, treachery, love and a hero of course!

Before there was the internet, television, video games, and cell phones in every home, the people of the 1930s and 1940s (otherwise known as the Golden Age) spent their time going to the theater, listening to the radio shows, and reading cheap novels and pulp fiction magazines. Many famous authors wrote countless short stories that were published in brown pulp paper magazines, including the late L. Ron Hubbard.

Galaxy Press has been releasing audiobooks versions of Hubbard's short stories for the past few years and they have kindly sent me a few free copies in exchange for my honest review. I had the privilege to listen to Sea Fangs, which originally appeared in the June 1934 issue of Five Novels.

Sea Fangs is a fast-paced action adventure with Bob Sherman, a sailor, who tries to save the yacht Bonito from being destroyed by a powerful hurricane off the shores of Venezuela. What is he doing on the yacht in the first place? Well, a few years earlier a man named Herbert Marmion greedily stole the land and the drilling business that belonged to Bob, who now finds himself on the very yacht owned by Herbert. The only thing that is on his mind is revenge. That is until he meets the stunning raven-haired Phyllis Marmion, who happens to be his enemy's daughter.

The hurricane is the least of his problems as the ship is attacked by bloody pirates and everyone aboard is kidnapped. Before he knows it, he is thrown into a dirty dungeon on the Island of Death.

The audiobook cover doesn't give the story justice as it looks like an old harlequin novel, so I wasn't too thrilled about listening to it. Let's just say my week has not been the greatest as there has been a death in my family, another family emergency, and my allergies have been acting up.

Galaxy Press is dedicated to publishing the huge volume of literary works written by L. Ron Hubbard. Their latest titles offer a new generation of appreciative readers long out-of-print stories that first appeared in the Golden Age of pulp magazines. "The Crossroads" is a science fiction yarn that first appeared in the February 1941 issue of 'Unknown' magazine. "Destiny's Drum" is a thrilling action/adventure story taken from the March 1935 issue of 'Five Novels Monthly', while "Sea Fangs" is one of Hubbard's signature sea faring adventures from the June 1934 issue of 'Five Novels Monthly'. Hubbard, a master of every form of genre fiction, is perhaps best known as an author for his science fiction stories such as 'A Matter of Matter", originally published in the August 1949 issue of 'Astounding Science Fiction'. All of these classic Hubbard stories are a 'must' for his legions of fans and an impressive tribute to his storytelling skills in the heyday of pulp magazine fiction!

This exciting sea adventure is filled with action and fear, this story will keep you wondering what is going to happen next, as it is never what you think.

Years earlier, Sailor Bob Sherman had his land and business ripped away from him from Herbert Marmion, a true definition of a thief and a scoundrel. Because of this, Sherman is forced to live at sea. Now off the shores of Venezuela, a hurricane is stirring up, and Sherman needs to work fast to save the yacht he was hired to work on from capsizing.

While on the yacht Sherman has caught the eye of a beautiful raven-haired woman named Phyllis Marmion, but he knows nothing must come from it as she is the daughter of his enemy.

With all of this going on, you would think it couldn't get worse, but it does. The yacht is attacked by pirates and everyone is taken hostage. The pirates take all of the captors to the Island of Death and throws them into a dungeon. Sherman is all to familiar with this place, as he has been held there once before. Unfortunately, all of the natives know this too, making it almost impossible for him to ever escape.

The excitement just keeps going with this story, I found my self terrified at times, and cheering at others. L. Ron Hubbard has a way of adding those little twists to his stories that keeps you guessing right up to the end.

So if you are looking for an exciting sea adventure, then I completely recommend Sea Fangs.

I drive a pretty long way to work each day - some days spending over an hour in my car each way. So I enjoy listening to Audio Books. I was recently given the opportunity to listen to some Stories from the Golden Age. These Audio tapes are about 2 hours long and Galaxy Press has over 150 audiobook stories in their collection by L. Ron Hubbard.
The nice thing about these audiobooks is that there is a lot of action in them and you can hear the different characters - with lots of sound effects. There is also a wide variety of book types including scifi, fantasy, western, mystery, adventure and more.
The first story I listened to was Sea Fangs ~This was a story with both a hero and heroine who fall in love. Sailor Bob Sherman was trying to save a yacht from being capsized in a hurricane. The owners daughter Phyllis was on the ship and believed in Bob. The yacht was saved only to be taken over by some pirates and all were taken captive. How do they get out? You will need to listen to this interesting Audiobook to find out.
