The Dangerous Dimension

Tonight I found myself with some free time and decided to sit down with some books I've had for awhile, but never got around to reading.  Of those books was a short story, The Dangerous Dimension, by L. Ron Hubbard.


I was skeptical when I started reading this.  After hearing so much of the Scientology hoopla over the years I dismissed Hubbard as a crazy man and thought I would have no interest in his works, however, I was wrong.  I absolutely loved this short story, and I can't wait to check out more of Hubbard's works.

This story follows a professor, Henry Mudge, who discovers an unbelievable equation which allows himself to teleport himself anywhere in the Universe.  Mudge, however, cannot control his new ability and must work to fine tune his equation before he ends up teleporting himself into a situation which he cannot escape.

This is a very short read; if you find yourself with a spare moment I hope you check this story out, you won't regret it.

tl;dr good quick read, check it out.

We can't always assume all the Scientology as looney and crazy, That book looks like an interesting read, thanks for bringing it to my attention bro!

I don't doubt he's an excellent science fiction writer. The only thing is that the whole Dianetics sounds like another novel of his...

Hubbard was a solid writer. Lovecraft gets shit too for racism, Poe for his drinking, etc. etc. Even though people can be stupid or lacking to standards in some cases, you cannot deny their ability. Keep reading, its good to know others are.

I'm going to laugh so hard when you turn into a Scientologist soon because of reading his work and becoming all hypnotized with it and stuff :)
