ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Typewriter in the Sky, the third in the trio of landmarks of speculative fiction publishing by Mr. Hubbard in 1940, appeared in the November and December issues of Unknown. [See Fear and Final Blackout, also published in 1940.]
A richly original story-within-a-story—the tale of an author and the main character in a novel he’s writing locked in a frantic, funny do-or-die battle of wits and wills.
L. Ron Hubbard took gleefully inventive liberties with the historical details of the Spanish Main. Indeed, at the time, there was a widely shared view that the novel was a masterly parody of Sabatini’s Sea Hawk and Captain Blood pirate extravaganzas. And it is also true that Hubbard certainly knew the Caribbean intimately, both from extensive research and firsthand from his motion-picture and mineralogical journeys of the early 1930s.
