Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) March 16, 2010
Book publishing company Galaxy Press is offering free downloads of any of several eBooks and audio books written by pulp fiction author L. Ron Hubbard for free on its newly updated website, http://www.goldenagestories.com. The free eBook and audio book downloads are part of an ongoing effort to educate general readers on pulp fiction—stories written in the 1920s, 1930s and 1940s.
In making the announcement about the newly designed website, Galaxy Press president John Goodwin stated, “We wanted to provide a place people could go to find out about this golden age of storytelling and gain some understanding as to why Hollywood continues to pull from this period to create many of its top blockbusters.”
In addition to downloading free eBooks and audio books of stories written by Hubbard at http://www.goldenagestories.com that have been made available, visitors can listen to a new radio channel, Golden Age Radio. This online streaming allows visitors to the Golden Age Stories website to listen to Stories from the Golden Age at any time of the day for free.
Like other great pulp fiction writers that included names whose characters we have come to appreciate such as Edgar Rice Burroughs (Tarzan), Raymond Chandler (Philip Marlowe), Agatha Christie (Poirot and Miss Marple) and Dashiell Hammett (Sam Spade), L. Ron 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.
The Stories from the Golden Age is a collection of 153 stories written by L. Ron Hubbard during the 1930s and ‘40s. These stories have been reproduced in their original format as both a trade paperback using original pulp artwork and inside illustrations, and as unabridged, multi-cast audio books with original music and fully produced, movie-like sound effects.
