Description

Renowned throughout the universe...


A star among the stars...


A timeless hero whose time is now...

Ole Doc Methuselah is his name, and saving the universe is his game.

He may be a touch absent-minded, a tad disorganized, with a slight tendency to lose all perspective in the presence of an attractive woman...but when it comes to saviors of the universe, you take what you can get.

And what you get with Ole Doc Methuselah — the most famous member of the most elite organization in the universe, the Soldiers of Light — is action, spectacle, mystery, and plenty of laughs along the way.

With his razor-sharp scalpel, hypodermic needles, and doctor's bag of tricks, he journeys to the far corners of the cosmos, vowing to cut out the corruption, confront the cruelty, and contain the warped psychology that plagues mankind — and all other kind out there.

Yes, there is intelligent life in the universe after all. You'll find it in Ole Doc Methuselah. So if you're looking for an adventure to remember, this is just what the doctor ordered.

A Galaxy Press audio production.

About the author

With 19 New York Times bestsellers and more than 350 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.

    So, the Scientologists at BEA like to interview convention-goers about their opinions on ol' Elron.

    I told them, truthfully, that I'd read one of his books, thought it was godawful, and declined the opportunity to read any more.

    Naturally, they wanted to know which book I'd read, and I couldn't think of the name of it right off the bat. I did however, say something to the effect of: "It featured a super-powerful Golden Age manly hero who went around saving the day."

    However, even for Golden Age manly heroes (who, I admit, are not really my thing) this book is godawful. It's actually a series of short stories, originally produced for magazines. Our Hero, Ole Doc, is a Soldier Of Light, who's sort of a Super-Doctor of the Universe. He has an alien slave sidekick, who, of course, loves being enslaved. The tone aims for socially-relevant humor, but for me, it fell flat. The writing is stilted and unexceptional, and for ostensibly 'action-packed' stories, the overall effect was pretty boring.

    My Scientologist interviewer allegedly couldn't figure out what I was talking about, and weakly exhorted me to read the Battlefield Earth series. (I could tell he didn't think there was much of a chance that I would.)

    Cheesy 1940s pulp sci-fi fun. Nothing deep, but entertaining.
