5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Science Fiction from 1938!, December 6, 2011

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Tramp, The (Stories from the Golden Age) (Paperback)
This reprint of a classic and early L. Ron Hubbard science fiction story originally ran in three installments in Astounding Science Fiction magazine. Far grimmer in tone than some of Hubbard's satirical pieces, The Tramp is essentially a modern tragedy. The principle character, Doughface Jack, is a victim who ultimately becomes consumed by circumstances beyond his control. The blind begger woman that he meets after aquiring his phenomenal powers adds a dash of Greek targedy to this quintessential American fable. The dilaogue is right out of 1938 and the colloquial expressions are a joy to read, adding flavor to the characterizations. This is a uinque and fascinating piece of fiction from L. Ron Hubbard's early career.
