Hollywood, CA (PRWEB) March 13, 2014
2014 marks the 80th anniversary of L. Ron Hubbard as a professional writer with the publication of “The Green God” in the February 1934 edition of Thrilling Adventures, it was announced by Author Services, Inc., the literary agency Hubbard established to meet the continuing demand for his works. Hubbard was 23.
The announcement was made in celebration of the anniversary of his birthday, March 13, 1911.
“Hubbard had gone to Encinitas, just north of San Diego, where he began writing a story a day from 4,500 to 20,000 words in length, and then submitted them to New York publishers to break into the market,” John Goodwin Author Services Public Affairs stated. “After just six weeks, he sold his first two stories.”
Like other great pulp writers that included names such as Edgar Rice Burroughs, Raymond Chandler, Agatha Christie and Dashiell Hammett, Hubbard rapidly became a mainstay of popular fiction in the 20th century. However, Hubbard was unlike most authors of the day, as his stories covered a wide spectrum of genres, including adventure, western, mystery, detective, fantasy, science fiction and even some romance, using his own and 15 pen names.
“Because L. Ron Hubbard’s stories were character-driven, they have remained timeless, providing great stories for a wide variety of readers,” Goodwin added. “This helps explain their popular acceptance into so many diverse areas from truck stops to military bases around the globe and even including middle and high school reading programs nationwide.”
Author Services has been engaged in the republication of his pulp fiction writings. Stories from the Golden Age contains 153 stories all written by Hubbard during the 1930s and 1940s, widely-considered the “Golden Age of Science Fiction and Fantasy.” 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 dimensional sound effects.
