We will read and discuss fiction books written by L. Ron Hubbard and his contemporaries and friends.
L. Ron Hubbard was a prolific writer of fiction working in the genres of Sci Fi, Fantasy, Adventure, Mystery, Suspense and Western. He was well known for writing for the pulps and wrote under many pen names during the 1930s and 1940s. He then returned to writing fiction in the 1980s.
We will read from his vast collection of writings keeping with a mix of genres and sprinkling in some books from his contemporaries in that genre in order to contrast and compare their styles.
Meetings will be held the third Saturday of each month.
This next month we will read and discuss "Battlefield Earth" by L. Ron Hubbard. It's a long read but well worth the time.
In the year AD 3000, Earth has been ruled by an alien race, the Psychlos, for a millennium. After one thousand years, humanity is an endangered species numbering fewer than 50,000, and reduced to a few tribes in isolated parts of the world, while the Psychlos strip the planet of its mineral wealth. Jonnie Goodboy Tyler, a young warrior of one such tribe, lives in the shadow of the Rocky Mountains. Depressed by the death and disease affecting his tribe, he leaves his village to explore the lowlands and to disprove the superstitions long held by his people of monsters in those areas.
Follow the adventures of Jonnie Goodboy Tyler as he attempts to free the Earth from the rule of the Psychlos.
