Boldly go to times where no one has gone before. While transporting a contraband Russian time machine and developmental weaponry, Private Everett Dumphee finds himself cast into new settings when the device suddenly activates. What follows are fantastic high-tech experiences that might be called the ultimate off-road adventure. For the determined Dumphee—narrowly escaping with his life and three beautiful women—it is not necessarily a matter of will he make his destination, but when. These four vivid characters trek through this fun and fast-moving journey like there's no tomorrow. Wherever that may be. "A wild, high-tech ride through time. Read it to have a rollicking good time." —Brian Herbert, co-author Dune: House Attreides

Staggeringly Awful

Oh holy G-d give me my five hours back.

I've been a fan of L. Ron Hubbard's science fiction since I was a teenager. His Mission Earth series and Battlefield Earth are great, if long, reads. The folks at Galaxy Press have done a lovely job reissuing much of his older fiction, which is of varying quality, in print and full-cast audio form, which I wholeheartedly appreciate. To the Stars, in particular, is an exceptional book and audio performance that I really should get a review done on.

All of that said, this collaboration between Hubbard and Dave Wolverton is an abomination, and one that I actually paid for here!

The intro to the novel implies that it's supposed to be some sort of comic, time-traveling romp. In execution, it's a horrid, racist, senseless tale that fails on every level, including on what little science is actually in the book. I literally cannot believe they were able to find narrators for this nonsense. I can only hope there are regretful, expletive-laden outtakes ending in the cutting of larger checks for pain and suffering.

Avoid this book at all costs. I've already deleted the mp3s to protect my sons in case they want to raid my audiobook collection someday.

Author Bio: L. Ron Hubbard

L. Ron Hubbard (1911–1986), with nineteen New York Times bestsellers and more than 230 million copies of his works in circulation, was among the most acclaimed and widely read authors of the twentieth century. As a leading light of American pulp fiction through the 1930s and 1940s, he was 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 him.
