"Fear is one of the most compelling fantasies ever written, with all the scary logic and authority of a genuine nightmare. Hubbard didn't need werewolves and bloody axes—he could scare the daylights out of you with a hat, or a stairway, or a little boy sitting on a rock and scratching his initials in the dirt with a stick. Fear is a terribly powerful story." -Tim Powers "Fear is the best piece of fiction L. Ron Hubbard ever wrote. It is one of the foundations of contemporary horror genre, widely influential, and powerfully effective. Fear is a work of deep psychological insight and moral complexity that helped to transform horror literature from an antiquarian or metaphysical form into a contemporary and urban form with the gritty details of everyday realism. From Ray Bradbury to Stephen King, a literary debt is owed to L. Ron Hubbard for Fear." David Hartwell ". . . a story of fantasy and terror that helped pave the way for today's style in horror fiction. Fear does something very rare—it lives up to its title. Hubbard defines the essence of what it means to be afraid." Atlanta Journal and Constitution "One of the most brilliant psychological thrillers of all time, one of the finest horror stories ever written." Karl Edward Wagner —Isaac Asimov "A true scare." —Ray Bradbury "Fear is L. Ron Hubbard's finest work!" —Robert Bloch ". . . a classic tale of creeping surreal menace and horror. . . If you're not averse to a case of the cold chills—a rather bad one—and you've never read Fear, I urge you to do so. Don't even wait for a dark and stormy night. This is one of the really, really good ones." —Stephen KingAbout the Author:
With 19 New York Times bestsellers and more than 230 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.
