Hell's Legionnaire

Galaxy Audio. ISBN 9781592122622. $9.95. F
Galaxy released a handful of Hubbard's vintage pulp stories last year in its "Stories from the Golden Age" series, but this is the best of them. The package includes the title story plus "The Barbarians" and "The Squad That Never Came Back." All released in 1935, these tales chronicle the death match between the French Foreign Legion and the Berbers in Morocco. The stories offer loads of action, and Hubbard doesn't pull his punches—battles between the soldiers and the Arabs, beheadings, and torture scenes are refreshingly graphic. An absolute blast, and you can't beat the price. (LJ 3/15/12)
