Press release from: VP Marketing

These hard-hitting, rough-riding, outrageous and far-flung adventures and spectacular tales are offered in the "Stories from the Golden Age" audio book collection by New York Times bestselling author L. Ron Hubbard, published by Galaxy Press. Each volume painstakingly recreates the pulp style with a historical perspective.

Hollywood, CA - October 22, 2010 -- Over the past twenty years we have seen huge Hollywood blockbusters featuring heroic characters like Indiana Jones, Superman, Luke Skywalker and Iron Man. All of these characters are grounded in the pulp fiction genre, which saw a huge resurgence during America's Great Depression. During this time, readers sought to escape the tough economic conditions into the world of adventurous possibilities offered by pulp fiction authors. These authors understood that people were searching for characters that were larger-than-life and could overcome any problem in their way.

One of the top authors of the pulp fiction era was L. Ron Hubbard. His first story, The Green God, was published in 1934 in Thrilling Adventure magazine. So began one of the most remarkable writing careers in history. Once his imagination flared to life there was no turning back. And he was prolific. He could crank out thousands of words in a burst of creativity energy, producing numerous short stories and novels at an astounding pace. He didn't simply participate in the pulp era, he helped define it. His stories were so popular that readers wrote to the editors, demanding more from his typewriter.

"There is something intrinsically patriotic about Hubbard's stories," says Thomas McNulty, author of Errol Flynn: The Life and Career. "They are a slice of Americana, cut from the fabric of our lives, reaffirming the principles of hard work, and never losing sight of our basic humanity."

Stories From the Golden Age is a collection of 153 stories that have been reproduced in their original format as a trade paperback, using original pulp artwork and inside illustrations, and also as unabridged, multicast audio books with original music and fully produced, movie-like sound effects. The first round of eBooks is now available through the iPad bookstore, Amazon.com, BarnesAndNoble.com and on the Stories From the Golden Age website at http://GoldenAgeStories.com/audiobooks

These stories are legendary among connoisseurs of the pulp era. Galaxy Press has reproduced Hubbard's work as exciting collections of audio books on CD, available through their website. Over 80 actors have worked on this project including: Michael Fairman, Karen Black, Josh Robert Thompson, Tom Kenny, Charles Durning and Jim Meskimen.

Highly prized by pulp fiction fans, these audio book editions ( http://www.goldenagestories.com/audiobooks ) have become very popular gifts as the holiday season begins.

Hubbard's classic stories from the 1930's and 40's have been generating rave reviews, including this one from Publishers Weekly:

"Demonstrating his unique ability to relate even the most complicated story with a keen eye for detail and realism, Hubbard's stunning writing ability and creative imagination set him apart as one of the greatest literary figures of the 20th century."

A short video introduction to the Stories From the Golden Age series, entitled "The Pulp Revival", can be seen on the Golden Age Stories YouTube page at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i8RKKlt35ek
