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.
In 1950, he wrote one of the bestselling books of all time, "Dianetics: The Modern Science Mental Health." His researches into the mind and spirit continued with the publication of additional titles on Dianetics and Scientology.
In celebration of his fiftieth anniversary as an author, he again returned to the forefront of popular literature with his monumental epics "Battlefield Earth" and the ten‑volume Mission Earth series. Together, these titles dominated international bestseller lists for more than 200 weeks, and still remain among the all‑time classic works of modern speculative fiction.
