Greed (Stories from the Golden Age) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Far in the future exist two Earth empires, separated by a weapon-projected wall of space and poised for war. And George Marquis Lorrilard, a sometime lieutenant in the United Continents Space Navy (that pitiful handful of space guards) and now a space exploiter supposedly driven by greed, must change the fate of Earth and the stars.

Synopsis:

Captivating new worlds. Once there had been a single government of Earth controlled by the western races, but the long-oppressed people of Asia finally struck back with a "cohesion projector." In an instant, the device established a solid, invisible wall of space—creating a dividing line between the superpowers, with the Asiatic Federation inside and the United Continents outside.Both powers are tenuously perched on the brink of war until George Marquis Lorrilard comes along. A sometime lieutenant of the pitiful handful of space guards known as the United Continents Space Navy, he's used the experience to become a space exploiter. Far less driven by altruism than by the ferocious thirst and hunger of greed, Lorrilard sets a course to change forever the fate of Earth and the stars. ALSO INCLUDES THE SCIENCE FICTION STORIES "FINAL ENEMY" AND "THE AUTOMAGIC HORSE"

"A wonderfully rich and textured experience, complete with realistic sound effects and moody atmospheric music." —Publishers Weekly Listen Up Award winner for 2008

Synopsis:

Is Greed good? The future of Earth and all of mankind may hang on that one question. And George Marquis Lorrilard—a space age ace-pilot, adventurer and fortune-hunter to rival Hans Solo of Star Wars—is just the man to answer it. The world is divided between two super powers locked in eternal warfare. But a top-secret weapon—the cohesion projector–could lead to annihilation on an epic scale. But the projector also stands in the way of Lorrilard’s profits, and the survival of millions may ultimately depend on the power of his Greed.

About the Author

With 19 New York Times bestsellers and more than 230 million copies of his works in circulation, L. Ron Hubbard is among the most acclaimed and widely read authors of our time.  As a leading light of American Pulp Fiction through the 1930s and ’40s, he is 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 L. Ron Hubbard.
