To the Stars
L. Ron Hubbard
He might be the inventor of one of the world's lamest pseudo-religions, Scientology, but at least L. Ron Hubbard can boast that he created some of the finest sci-fi of the 20th century. Aficionados claim that To the Stars—which was originally published in 1950 in the pulp zine Astounding Science Fiction and has just been released for the first time in book form—is one of Hubbard's best.
Where Shall Wisdom Be Found?
Once again the world's most voluminous defender of Western literature dives headfirst into the canon to explain why Homer, Plato, Cervantes, Shakespeare and the rest of that select fraternity matter. Bloom knows better than anyone how to make this kind of argument riveting.
