Writer: The Shaping of Popular Fiction

Come to know the literary legend that is L. Ron Hubbard—a leading light of American Pulp Fiction, a screenwriter in the Golden Age of Hollywood and a creative visionary who authored some of the world’s most enduring masterpieces.  Here is both the story and back-story of a man who remains among the most widely read writers of all time.

My salvation is to let all this roll over me, to write, write and write some more. To hammer keys until I am finger worn to the second joint and then to hammer keys some more. To pile up copy, stack up stories, roll the wordage and generally conduct my life along the one line of success I have ever had. I write.

—L. Ron Hubbard
