Literary Correspondence: Letters & Journals

LITERARY CORRESPONDENCE
LETTERS & JOURNALS

From his adventurous days in the great Pulp Kingdom, to the letters capping half a century of authorship and excellence—here is the definitive body of L. Ron Hubbard’s literary correspondence. Through this extensive collection of his letters and journals, here is the story behind the stories.

If you adventure through life, you have a good chance to be a success on paper. Adventure doesn’t mean globe-trotting, exactly, and it doesn’t mean great deeds. Adventuring is like art. You have to live it to make it real.

—L. Ron Hubbard
