Women. Liquor. Power. Women. Liquor. Power. That is Fanner Marston’s mantra—his reason for being—and while he knows a little about the first and a lot about the second, he may well be on the verge of learning everything there is to know about the third. Power. He may, in fact, be about to uncover the key to gaining absolute control over the entire universe. The only problem is, Fanner is certifiably insane.... His starship has crash-landed, and he’s the sole survivor, which doesn’t matter to him. Driven by greed and lust for power, wracked by thirst, hunger and pain, all he cares about is reaching the ancient city of Parva and making himself at home. Because there lies The Great Secret to universal domination—and what's a little suffering on the road to becoming God? Does Fanner have a prayer? The writing’s on the walls of Parva—and you won't believe what it says.... Also includes the science fiction adventures, “The Space Can,” in which a decrepit space battleship is a civilian fleet's only defense; “The Beast,” the tale of a hunter in the jungles of Venus, chasing an immoral beast; and “The Slaver,” in which an alien race has enslaved the human race, but can't repress the power of human love. Blast off on a head-trip you’ll never forget as the audio version of The Great Secret takes you inside the mind of a man who is crazy with lust for power. “Serves as a wonderful introduction to the breadth of Hubbard’s output.” —Comic Buyers Guide

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.
