Things are disappearing. Parts of buildings, parts of people, parts of the whole world—they’re here today, gone tomorrow. Old Shellback thinks he needs glasses. But all he really has to do is open his eyes ... and see the light. Or so says George Smiley—otherwise known as the Messiah. George claims that the reason things are vanishing is because he wants them to go away. He has no more use for the world ... and so it goes. Say goodbye. But Old Shellback has a different idea, and since he is the most stubborn man in the universe, you might want to hear him out. What’s Shellback’s idea? That two can play at this game. While George is making this world disappear, Old Shellback will make another one appear. Join him on an amazing odyssey—as he heads back to a future of his own making. Also includes the Science Fiction adventures: “A Can of Vacuum,” in which a practical joke on a space station proves that a good sense of humor is timeless; and “240,000 Miles Straight Up,” the thrilling story of a race to the moon ... and the one man who may be able to save the earth from Armageddon. Is it the end of the world—or just the end of the world as we know it? Listen to the audio version of One Was Stubborn and see why the answer is out of this world.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Three science-fiction short stories delivered by a full cast, along with sound effects and a musical score, make this an enjoyable listen for fans of audio drama. The prime story focuses on the future, in which a man refuses to follow a new guru who proselytizes his belief that thought is what creates and maintains reality. The protagonist must escape, even if that means going into the past. With a deep voice and strong emphasis, R. F. Daley provides the main narration for each story while other voice talents deliver the characters’ lines. Those narrators provide voices that are a bit caricatured but that still fit each story.” AudioFile

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.
