Ron L. Hubbard “Gun Boss of Tumbleweed”
I recently received the book “Gun Boss of Tumbleweed” by: L. Ron Hubbard for my review along with the audio recording. It is a book containing two short stories which were originally published in 1949 in Thrilling Westerns.
I really enjoyed the stories because they moved very quickly. Both of the stories are very high action and keep you flipping pages wondering what is coming next. Reading it was like being transported back in time to the Wild West. It was like taking an adventure and never having to leave my house.
Ron L. Hubbard did an excellent job to help me to really get the feel of what it was like during the time of real life westerns. The stories both contain great detail that really set the stage for all of the action taking place. The characters are well-developed and the stories are written very well it feels as though you are riding in the saddle with the characters.
Ron. L. Hubbard wrote many stories during the time period including some in other genres like science fiction, fantasy and adventure. Galaxy Press is releasing some of these stories again for other generations to get to experience the writing of a number one New York Times Bestselling Author.

My favorite part was listening to the recordings they are set to sound like you are listening to an old time radio. If you want to learn more about how they put the three- dimensional sound and recorded the audio be sure to check out the video below.
I really enjoyed listening to both of the stories which really help to take me to a different time. I usually read something a little more girly than the “Gun Boss of Tumbleweed” but it was something different that made me feel like I was right in the middle of the action.
Here is a little about the story:
Mart Kincaid, a man in the Clint Eastwood mold, may be the fastest gun in the state, but his life is not his own. It belongs to Gar Malone, a rancher driven by his thirst for power and more land. Now Gar wants the Singing Canyon spread, and blackmails Kincaid into running its owners off. But that means driving away Sally Drake, and that’s the last thing Kincaid wants to do. It’s time to settle up, once and for all, with the blackmailing Malone.
Also includes the Western adventure Blood on His Spurs, in which two men have to find a way to end their feud . . . or pay a high price in blood and money
