Embittered by past failures and broken dreams, American fighter pilot David Duane believes in but one cause—his own. Europe is at war, and he’ll fight it for a price, selling his deadly flying skills to the highest bidder.

Just as Bogart came to Casablanca to escape his past, Duane has come to the icy white wastes of Scandinavia to wage a private war in the skies. But he’s about to take off on a flight and undertake an unforgettable journey—On Blazing Wings—to a place beyond the imagination . . . leading to a revelation that will open his eyes and his heart.

In a world divided by war, Duane discovers that sometimes you have to make a choice, and that making the wrong one could cost him the woman he loves. . . .

As a barnstorming pilot in the early days of aviation, Hubbard was dubbed “Flash” Hubbard by the aviation magazines of the day. His unique personal and pioneering knowledge of flight streaks across the page in novels like On Blazing Wings.

“An exciting—and surprisingly moving—conclusion.” —Booklist

About the Author:

As one of the 20 top bestselling authors of all time, with more than 325 million works in circulation, L. Ron Hubbard stands alongside an illustrious company of writers. But he also stands alone—as an author who actually lived many of the stories he wrote.

Review:

“One of the things that come to mind when I pick up a work by L. Ron Hubbard is that he is able to cross genres and maintain his high standards of quality and interest. His stories also give the feel of experience and firsthand knowledge of the subject matter.” —Baryon

“Two unabridged, multicast-performance audiobook adaptations (with music and sound effects) bring L. Ron Hubbard's classic pulp action-adventure stories to vivid life. Originally published in the May 1940 issue of Five Novels Monthly, "On Blazing Wings" (9781592122325, $9.95, 2 CDs, 2 hours) follows David Duane, a mercenary ace fighter pilot with the soul of an artist. Duane takes a mission that pits him against Russian Communists in Finland. When Duane's plane is shot down, Duane discovers a bizarre, mysterious city distinguished by luxury and ornamented with golden minarets. As Duane struggles to remember his true inner purpose, he finds himself at a perilous crossroads, for he years desperately to save the woman he loves... a woman who serves as a Russian officer. Bob Caso is the lead performer of this thrilling adventure. "The Carnival of Death" (9781592122684, $9.95, 2 CDs, 2 hours) was originally published in the November 1934 issue of Popular Detective; the story centers upon undercover US narcotics agent Bob Clark, who stumbles across the horrific work of a decapitating killer. Are the murders being committed by four tribal headhunters working for Shreve's Mammoth Carnival? Or is someone else wreaking havoc behind the scenes? When Clark becomes the captive of the tribal headhunters, he had better pray that they are not the ones responsible! Jim Meskimen is the lead performer of this suspenseful murder mystery. Both audiobooks are highly recommended especially for fans of the Golden Age.” —Midwest Book Review

"... the story, which first appeared in the May 1940 issue of Five-Novels Monthly , is primo pulp fiction, written in an urgent style (plenty of exclamation marks and short paragraphs); but it drives the reader through to the exciting--and surprisingly moving--conclusion." —Booklist
