L. Ron Hubbard's "Greed" is a post-war science fiction morality tale told by a master storyteller. By the time "Greed" was published in the pages of Astounding Science Fiction magazine Hubbard had produced an astonishing body of fiction encompassing every genre: air-adventure, western, sea adventure, crime stories, far-flung tales in exotic locales, fantasy and tales from the Orient. "Greed" is typical of his output - well-written and fully realized. This edition includes two bonus stories - "Final Enemy" which is yet another classic, and the renowned "The Auto-Magic Horse." It's difficult to pick a favorite because all three are so good, but I'd have to lean in favor of "The Auto-Magic Horse." I own a rather battered copy of the original October 1949 issue of Astounding Science Fiction where "The Auto-Magic Horse" first appeared. Part Hollywood satire, part science fiction, "The Auto-Magic Horse" is a stand-out gem from L. Ron Hubbard.
As always I am recommending the superb audio book from Galaxy Press in addition to the paperback. These audio books are the best on the market. The vocal talent includes David Paladino, James King, Jim Meskimen, Tamra Meskimen, Noelle North, Jeff Pomerantz, Phil Proctor, Enn Reitel, Josh R. Thompson and Michael Yurchak. The primary narration is provided by R. F. Daley who has the best voice in the audio book industry.
