It’s not easy living in someone else’s world. But that’s the story of Mike de Wolf’s life. . . literally. He awakens to find himself a fictional villain in someone else’s book, landing in the West Indies three centuries ago, pursued by pirates and a wild woman on horseback. What’s a guy to do? The answer’s written in the sky—in this wildly original, wickedly amusing novel. "An adventure story written in the great style adventures should be written in." —Clive Cussler

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.
"A true masterpiece of the genre...a book that remembers how to be 'fun' and entertaining." —Kevin J. Anderson
“While many pulp writers worked in multiple genres, including Gibson and Dent, the majority of them focused on one or two specific genres, solidifying their careers in that genre in which they felt more comfortable. Hubbard, on the other hand, tackled a variety of genres and produced a now legendary output of stories in every major (and minor) genre. He wrote Westerns, swashbucklers, air adventure, mysteries, espionage thrillers, science fiction, fantasy, tales of the Orient, sea tales, and even Yukon tales in the tradition of Jack London." —Antique Trader
“I particularly like Typewriter in the Sky because it was such a skillful parity of adventure fiction and was written with a great deal of lightness and touch which you didn’t get much in those days.” —James Gunn, Grand Master of Science Fiction
“I grew up reading Hubbard’s science fiction and fantasy. Such stories and novels as Typewriter in the Sky, Final Blackout and his masterpiece Fear remain for me exemplary pulp that can be read down the decades. If you’ve seen any of the Galaxy Press editions of Hubbard’s work then you’ve seen some of the most carefully and beautifully crafted trade paperbacks of our time.”—Mystery Scene
