I may be going off topic with this but just look at this book cover.

Does looking at this book cover make you interested in reading the book?

When I was a staff member, Scientology had not yet taken on publishing Hubbard's fiction. (I should say his non-Scientology books because it's all fiction really.) Hubbard had an agent and farmed out his stories through another channel. I bought a copy of his Ole Doc Methuselah stories all collected into one book. The local member of the guardian's office was unhappy with me and seemed angry that the book was on the market. (The guardian's office is now the office of special affairs - yeah, I know, the guardian's office was disbanded - can you say PR?)

Three word review: repetitious, childish, shallow.

If you thought Dianetics was humorous you'll get a kick out of Ole Doc Methuselah.
