Cattle King for a Day

L. Ron Hubbard, read by full cast, Galaxy Audio, unabridged, two CDs, 2 hrs., $9

When Chinook Shannon goes out West to claim his inheritance, he finds it usurped by a local bully and a banker. With few options afforded him, he must fight back in classic Western style, which includes lots of punches, gunfire, and slick banter. Along with the story, this audiobook also includes "Come and Get It," a similar tale of a youth reclaiming his inheritance in the West. The stories are loaded with a full cast, sound effects, and musical score, and are narrated by R.F. Daley, who provides a strong deep projection and the zeal of an old-time radio host. Even though a few characters are thin caricatures, their voices sound genuine, and the excellent sound effects contribute to creating a more fleshed-out story. A Galaxy hardcover. (Sept.)
