Amazon.com is offering two pulp fiction classics - "Spy Killer" and "Under the Black Ensign" at a discount when purchased together. Written by bestselling author L. Ron Hubbard, this collection of stories is being reprinted for the first time since the 1930s and '40s.

Hollywood, CA - November 01, 2010 -- New York Times bestselling author L. Ron Hubbard's Stories from the Golden Age continue to receive rave reviews. To celebrate, Amazon.com is offering Spy Killer and Under the Black Ensign at a discount when purchased together. Immensely popular during a career that spanned fifty years, Hubbard's stories are being reprinted for the first time since their original publication in the pulp magazines of the 1930s and '40s.

These historic reprints from Galaxy Press total 153 hard-boiled stories, encompassing mystery, westerns, thrillers, science fiction, fantasy, sea adventures, and tales from the Orient, and will all be released in paperback and audio book formats.

The Golden Age Stories audiobooks (http://www.goldenagestories.com/audiobooks) combine cinematic special effects, the voice talents of pre-eminent Hollywood actors such as Bruce Boxleitner and Charles Durning, and original music that give the collection the sound of old time radio, but produced using state-of-the-art technology and revolutionizing the ever-popular audiobook industry.

These fast-paced, vibrant stories, available as paperbacks, and featuring audio CD and MP3 downloads, make up an engrossing collection brought to life in a contemporary format that fans of classic pulp stories are certain to fall in love with.

Hubbard's work is so popular, that the Head of the Rare Books Collection at the Library of Congress has noted: "You look at the L. Ron Hubbard collection, an author who spoke with a very popular imagination, in terms of science fiction in particular, really shaping that field, and you see this pristine collection where you can see the enormity of his literature."

Writers such as Ray Bradbury, Stephen King, Tim Powers and Robert A. Heinlein have praised Hubbard's creative imagination, raw talent and influential legacy. Hardboiled prose, endearing characters and brisk action all became hallmarks of Hubbard's remarkable literary output. Crackling with excitement, set in provocative locations, steeped in mood and mystery, these are the stunning original Golden Age Stories that helped define the American literary landscape.

Hubbard began writing his stories during the Depression, for the magazines that filled newsstands, and immediately established himself as a writer who could master any genre. He was so prolific that he used as many as 15 pen names in addition to his own byline, to meet the demand for quality pulp stories. These action-packed Golden Age Stories of intrigue, mystery and suspense will take readers back to an era of unbridled entertainment. Compelling stories, brilliant writing and boundless imagination earned him a reputation as one of the finest writers in the field of pulp fiction.

The Golden Age Stories are being released monthly by Galaxy Press through 2013 with over 30 titles currently available in paperback, featuring original pulp era illustrations, or as multicast audio theater productions on CD and as digital downloads. Incredible adventures in far-flung locales, on land or sea adventure stories, the Stories from the Golden Age collection offer something for everyone, in a variety of genres and formats.
