Slaves of Sleep & Masters of Sleep

This novel combines the two part serial by L Ron Hubbard, meshing the Arabian Nights with a new interdimensional story that is thought-provoking and very much reflects the silliness of the pulp era of storytelling.

This was two stories in one book. They had a lot in common: same characters, same plot, and same constant use of unnecessarily specific nautical terms. I feel like the author dissected a boat and tricked me into reading about it by promising jinnis.

I did not like these two. I feel that they would have been better without the psychology if the worst thing ever, but let me bog you down with sailing jargon because sailing is the greatest thing ever.

Excellent mix of fun, romance and arabian lore. I found this very very enjoyable and a quick fun read. Jinni's magic and romance. Nicely spun tale for fun.

Story plot twists are creative and clever. Held me to the end.

This is super pulpy and rather fun in an old-style way, all about one spineless young man's strange and circuitous route to assertive yet brainy manhood, romance and revenge.

Fun and action-packed; Hubbard makes it easy to separate the dichotomy of the waking and dream worlds.
