Hollywood, CA (PRWEB) November 25, 2014
Galaxy Press has announced the completion of its aggressive publishing program launched 6 ½ years ago to release 153 stories written by master storyteller L. Ron Hubbard in 80 books as the Stories from the Golden Age. The announcement was made Saturday night at Author Services, Inc. the literary agency for L. Ron Hubbard, by John Goodwin President Galaxy Press, at a celebration of the milestone achievement where the western romance, Tinhorn’s Daughter, as the 80th and final title was released as a book and audiobook.
Opening the evening in the L. Ron Hubbard Theatre was UKs top swing band, the Jive Aces, performing songs specifically written for the Stories from the Golden Age. This was followed by a reader’s theatre performance of Tinhorn’s Daughter. As usual, after the show guests were then able to enjoy refreshments, make new friends and get their photographs with the performers.
Part of the ceremony included a presentation from Audiofile, the magazine for people who love audiobooks, whose Editor and Founder Robin Whitten stated, “Galaxy Press has hit a milestone in audiobook publishing with the Stories from the Golden Age collection. The 80 audiobooks of the collection of L. Ron Hubbard, released in 6 1/2 years maintain the highest standards of audio drama and sound production.”
Another presentation from The Strand, the premier mystery magazine whose Editor Andrew Gulli wrote, “The Strand Magazine would like to recognize Galaxy Press for consecutively publishing a record 80 books by L. Ron Hubbard containing 153 stories in all popular genres including mystery and suspense.”
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 noted. “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.”
