Hollywood, CA (PRWEB) October 07, 2011
As part of an overall strategy to provide interesting and little known news to readers on the first half of the twentieth century and popularize the stories from that period, often referred to as the golden age of fiction, Galaxy Press has created a news site at http://www.goldenagestories.com/news featuring both enlightening and entertaining period articles. A section also exists on author L. Ron Hubbard, who published over 200 fiction works during that era, along with the stories he wrote in all of the popular genres including mystery, thriller, adventure, science fiction, fantasy, western and even some romance.
“The early 20th century was a very defining period for America which had undergone two World Wars, witnessed the crash of the stock market and suffered soaring unemployment, and we felt it important to provide the history of today’s popular entertainment—pulp fiction which at that time, provided an escape from a very dangerous and threatening environment, if even for only a few hours—as well as significant moments from the past. Thus we have created this news room,” stated John Goodwin president Galaxy Press.
“One feature we think readers will really enjoy is the section entitled, ‘This Week in History,’” continued Goodwin, “which will provide weekly updates of significant moments from the first half of the 20th century.” The current date features Chiang Kai-shek (1887-1975) being made president of China in 1928. It also provides a link to receive these “This Week in History” updates as an email.
Articles to be found in the news room include, “The Golden Age of Air Adventure,” “The Origin of the Texas Longhorn,” “The Ancient Silk Road,” “Red Diamonds are a Pulp Writers Best Friend,” and “What is Gravity? A Short Lesson.”
