Hollywood, CA, September 06, 2010 -- Hard-hitting mysteries, rough-riding westerns, outrageous fantasies and far-flung adventures are just some of the spectacular tales that are offered in the Stories from the Golden Age audio book collection by New York Times bestselling author L. Ron Hubbard, published by Galaxy Press.
"While some audio books may seem dry and formulaic, turning many potential listeners off from hearing instead of reading stories," says Hollywood publisher John Goodwin of Galaxy Press, "we have created a new form of audio entertainment with the Stories from the Golden Age that is unlike anything on the market."
Goodwin goes on to say, "What many people may not realize is that Hubbard's writing career spanned over fifty years, and that the more than 150 stories he wrote between 1934 and 1950 were uniquely drawn from true-to-life experience, including then-rare voyages to Asia and the South Pacific. In fact, he was not only one of America's first licensed glider pilots, but before the age of thirty, he was admitted to the famed Explorers Club and earned a rare Master Mariner's license."
Written for the rough-edged pulp fiction all-story magazines that filled newsstands throughout the 1930s and 1940s, the tales in the Stories from the Golden Age series have been brought to life in a contemporary format, revolutionizing the audio book industry.

Original pulp fiction tales often provided the characters who populated the radio dramas and captivated the masses. Heroes such as Nick Carter, Buck Rogers, The Lone Ranger and The Shadow, to name a very few, electrified the airwaves for millions of American listeners, who huddled around their radios to hear the latest adventures of their heroes.
Not unlike these classic radio shows of yesteryear, the Stories from the Golden Age audio books ( http://www.GoldenAgeStories.com/books ) are unique, with each and every tale a multicast production headlining professionals from the theater, animation, radio drama and motion picture industry.
The attention to detail and artful crafting of these stories is engineered through tens of thousands of sound effects, specially composed music for each of the genres in the series, and the instincts of accomplished artists and professionals.
These audio books aren't simply light entertainment - they are a full multimedia cinematic experience. They are also fun, they are alive - they are pulp fiction at its glorious best!
The Stories from the Golden Age tales are available in audio book and paperback formats, and can be found at the Stories from the Golden Age web site, http://www.GoldenAgeStories.com or wherever books are sold.
