Hollywood, CA (PRWEB) November 28, 2012
Hollywood Blvd was lined on both sides with eager fans for the 81st Anniversary of the Hollywood Christmas Parade Benefitting Toys for Tots. Along with Grand Marshal Joe Mantegna, Congressman Adam Schiff, Council Members Eric Garcetti and Tom LaBonge, there were over 100 celebrities who participated in the parade along with over 20 marching bands and 14 large parade balloons, along the 2 ½ mile route, including the 6-story tall Captain Tom Bristol with his Treasure Chest, from L. Ron Hubbard’s swashbuckling tale Under the Black Ensign, one of 80 titles from the Stories from the Golden Age and sponsored by Author Services, Inc.
Author Services once again served as this year’s green room servicing over 400 guests and with nearly 200 media lined up outside on the red carpet arrival line. One of the highlights was the arrival of the USMC Color Guard and Band along with USMC General Pete Osman (Ret) acknowledging the official kick-off of the Toys for Tots 2012 season and a special drive to provide books and toys for hard hit families by Hurricane Sandy.
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.
