Had to abbreviate the title as the original was a tad unweildy:
LOS ANGELES, Sept 04, 2008 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ — As a leading light of American Pulp Fiction through the 1930s and ’40s, L. Ron Hubbard authored over 250 short stories and novels, spanning all genres from mystery to adventure, westerns, fantasy and science fiction. With 19 New York Times bestsellers and more than 230 million copies of his works in print, he is among the most influential authors of the modern age.
Pulp magazines and radio dramas were the entertainment of the day prior to the advent of paperback novels and television, with over 30 million Americans awaiting the next issue of their favorite pulp magazines each week. Today the re-emergence of pulp stories can be seen everywhere — from movies like Indiana Jones to the comic book serials that now dominate the box office.
During and since the Pulp Fiction era, L. Ron Hubbard was considered by many to be the quintessential pulp fiction author; magazine issues containing his byline routinely saw a circulation increase of a minimum of 80,000 copies. To satisfy his many fans, Hubbard often produced multiple stories for a single issue, writing under a variety of pen names.
Galaxy Press, publisher of L. Ron Hubbard’s fiction works, has spent the past several years preparing for and making available a new line of pulp publications, the Stories from the Golden Age. This line will consist of 153 pulp stories in 80 books and audiobooks and will bring these stories to an even greater audience today.
Note: this is a CoS press release – Galaxy Press is a Scientology publishing outfit dedicated to Hubbard’s fiction works.
