Readers are invariably attracted to the cover art from the original pulp fiction magazines which still draws them in much as it did when they first appeared on newsstands in the 1930s and 40s.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) September 27, 2011
Attendees at the AARP Presents Life @ 50+ at the LA Convention Center were greeted by pirates, cowboys and dangerous dames, all characters from L. Ron Hubbard’s Stories from the Golden Age, published by Galaxy Press, who were on hand to introduce the line of books and have their photo taken with public. Even Alex Trebek, host of the famous game show Jeopardy! posed with the pirates.
“When introducing these Stories from the Golden Age,” said Galaxy Press President John Goodwin, “it is best to do it one-on-one at consumer shows. Readers are invariably attracted to the cover art from the original pulp fiction magazines which still draws them in much as it did when they first appeared on newsstands in the 1930s and 40s.”
People of all ages, from children barely walking to octogenarians, wanted their photos taken – mostly with the pirates. “That we had characters from these stories brought to life, helped to drive home just how fun these stories are,” Goodwin concluded.
Stories from the Golden Age contains 153 stories all written by Hubbard during the 1930s and 1940s—in genres ranging from Mystery to Thriller, Science Fiction and Fantasy to Adventure and Western, using his own and fifteen pen names—widely considered America’s Golden Age of Fiction. The print version of each work includes the pulp fiction artwork that originally accompanied the story in magazine publication. In addition, each title offers a full-cast, unabridged audio theatrical presentation complete with theme music and sound effects.
