(PRWEB) January 23, 2013

In their review of audiobooks of 2012, AudioFile Magazine—as the publication dedicated to the audiobook industry—selected their choice for best of the year choosing L. Ron Hubbard’s Hell’s Legionnaire in the Audio Theater category.

In their own words, AudioFile Magazine qualified how they chose the year’s best. “What are the best audiobooks? They’re the ones that make us laugh, or cry. The ones we recommend and lend to friends. The stories and voices that transport us far beyond the confines of our cars, our kitchens, our headphones. We love audiobooks, and in this issue, it’s our pleasure to recognize and celebrate what we consider to be the best audiobooks and best voices of the past year.”

In their announcement of Hell’s Legionnaire, AudioFile wrote, “Hubbard’s stories of Americans in the French Foreign Legion positively sparkle in audio format. Plots, murder, secret treasure, and damsels in distress abound in the three stories in this collection. The full cast delights. Like all of Galaxy’s Hubbard production, these stories are best taken for what they are—just plain fun.”

Radio provided the story as an audio experience, which let the mind add the pictures. By using authentic voices and as realistic sound effects as possible, it is impossible not to have the imagination kick in with your own video track.

Hell’s Legionnaire is one of 80 titles in the Stories from the Golden Age line containing 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. These titles are available wherever books are sold.
