More About the Author

With 19 New York Times bestsellers and more than 280 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.

7 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Michael Scott on November 8, 1999
Format: Paperback
The decision to throw Soltan Gris in prison in vol. 7 and remove him as narrator is really hard to defend. There's nothing that couldn't have been done better with Gris still running around the Confederacy wreaking havoc. Monte Pennwell was an atrocious idea. I suspect Hubbard died before the series was finished with someone else finishing it off, assuming the Pennwell identity to mask a different writing style. (Else Hubbard is truly a master of voice..since most writers carry their writing tone in everything they write)
Skip over the chapters involving Teenie, unless you're a undersexed teenager. Awful, awful stuff. Base two books around the worst characters (Teenie and Madison) in the series? What were they thinking?

I've read the entire Mission Earth series (back in the day when they first came out), and am currently re-reading them.

The only problem I have with the Mission Earth books is that they are SO good, I CANNOT PUT THEM DOWN and thus I lose quite a lot of sleep until I'm done with each book! When they were first coming out, I would eagerly await each book and then stay up all night long reading it. I've found the same to be true with all of my friends who've read this fantastic series.

Fast-paced, high adventure with incredible writing. I could go on, but suffice it to say, these are great books.

These authors have all found Hubbard's writing to be great -- Robert E. Heinlein, Larry Niven, Frank Herbert, Frederik Pohl, Jerry Pournelle, Robert Silverberg, Roger Zelazny, Jack Williamson, Eric Kotani, Algis Budrys, Andre Norton, Theodore Sturgeon, Anne McCaffrey, and many more. Do you really so many great writers would have such flawed taste themselves?

Hubbard was one of the greatest of the pulp fiction writers back in the golden age. And his later writings were just as good.

Format: Paperback
I used to think the sex in some of the Mission Earth books was too perverted to be real...and then came the Internet. The Mission Earth series could be subtitled "A Parody of Earth." It is hilarious. Hubbard also works in some strange new concepts of space and time. Funnier and faster than Heinlein, but just as profound.

When L Ron Hubbard set out to write this series, he wanted to write the biggest science fiction work ever written. At ten volumes, it is one of the biggest (if not THE biggest) science fiction work ever written. Brilliantly plotted, it is a delight to read. There is an element of satire running through the series. This must be one of the most underrated science fiction work of all time.
