Galaxy Press, book publishers for the Golden Age Stories pulp fiction series by bestselling author L. Ron Hubbard, took part in the annual Hollywood Christmas Parade with actors Martin Kove and Phil Proctor on the L. Ron Hubbard Stories from the Golden Age parade float, along with dancers and pulp fiction characters from the Golden Age Stories books.

THE GOLDEN AGE EXPRESS -- World-renowned actors Martin Kove (Karate Kid) and Phil Proctor (Big Brother, Rugrats, Finding Nemo, and Princess and the Frog) lead the L. Ron Hubbard Stories from the Golden Age float along Sunset and Hollywood Boulevards Sunday night during the 81st annual Hollywood Christmas Parade. Over 90,000 fans saw dozens of costumed swing dancers and pulp fiction characters come alive based on 150 stories and 80 novels by master storyteller L. Ron Hubbard.

It’s great to see the joy in people’s faces along the parade route. Hollywood’s past and current success is based a lot on pulp fiction stories, so Stories from the Golden Age make a perfect fit for the parade.

A record crowd of over 90,000 well-wishers greeted Hollywood actors Martin Kove and Phil Proctor, along with two dozen costumed actors riding aboard the colorful, glittering 32-foot long L. Ron Hubbard Stories from the Golden Age float—named the Golden Age Express—and Santa’s Jumpin’ Jive Swingers dancing alongside the float for the entire 2 ½ mile route Sunday night as part of the annual Hollywood Christmas Parade.

“It’s great to see the joy in people’s faces along the parade route,” said Kove, who was riding along with his fiancé, Michelle Tabb. “Hollywood’s past and current success is based a lot on pulp fiction stories, so Stories from the Golden Age make a perfect fit for the parade.”

Proctor, accompanied by his actor-daughter Kristin, stated, “The crowd was wowed!” He continued, “Everyone was here to see Santa and hear the musical bands, but our Golden Age Express and the wonderful original music, swing dancers and costumed characters made everyone smile.” (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9bNrfPtrUh4)
