My Blog

Retirement. Publishers, thank you for the many years of reading pleasure you gave me, but all good things must come to an end. Due to failing eyesight I am forced to retire. I can no longer review your books, and any that you send will be donated to the local library, unread. Do not send any more. I can only read for a couple hours every day, and this does not allow me to finish a book in reasonable time. I will be devoting time to my own books from now on, and reading on a personal level. Books that interest me. I prefer paperbacks and hardbacks, not eBooks. My eyesight has been failing the last few years, and I cannot handle hundreds of review books any more. My books are still available for review. Anyone interested in reviewing any of them, they are found in the Link to Tom’s Books On Amazon. Contact me for pdf copies at

Arctic Wings

Spring has come to White Bear Landing—and so has the law, in the firm hands of Royal Mounted policeman and pilot Bob Dixon. Dixon’s as gruff, tough and good-looking as Russell Crowe, and in this outpost halfway between the arctic mines and civilization, he’s known for taking the law to extremes.
More than once Dixon has meted out his own brand of rough justice with hard fists and hot lead, but now the tables have turned. The past has come back to haunt him, he’s been set up as a murder suspect, and a rogue’s gallery of enemies are lining up to settle old scores . . .
Out on the icy tundra, on the edge of the world, revenge can be cold—and brutal. Dixon’s only hope is to let the trust of a good friend and the love of a good woman lead the way to true justice and redemption—on Arctic Wings.

“Grand Adventure In The Cold North.”

Bob Dixon of the Royal Mounted Police is nicknamed “Lawbook” Dixon because he shows no mercy on criminals. Raised by a strict father who was an iron judge, even the family had to be above the law and his rules at all times. Bob hated the nickname he’s acquired, but he also hated crooks, and he was a tough Mounty that always brought the guilty man to trial. At White Bear Landing he tangles with Taggart, a tough trapper suspected of killing and robbing a man in the north. When Taggart tries to escape, Bob shoots him in the leg, leaving him needing a cane to get around. But evidence points to an Indian as the murderer, and Taggart is released and Bob forced to resign. It was all a frame, and Taggart was guilty, and Bob had to prove it. Plus, he has met a girl, Nancy McClane, at the White Bear Post, and they are in love.

Once again, L. Ron Hubbard proves he can write any genre, and his pulp writing still stands up today as some of the best adventure yarns written for the pulp magazines. “Arctic Wings” was originally published in the June 1938 issue of FIVE-NOVELS MONTHLY. Highly recommended.
