Los Angeles, CA – August 18, 2010 (via — Book publisher Galaxy Press is offering free eBook downloads of original pulp fiction stories written in the 1930’s and 1940’s by author L. Ron Hubbard. Since hitting the web just a few months ago, over 85,000 eBooks have been downloaded online from the series, Stories from the Golden Age.

Stories from the Golden Age is a collection of 153 stories that have been reproduced in their original format, as both a trade paperback using original pulp artwork and inside illustrations, and as unabridged, multicast audiobooks with original music and fully produced, movie-like sound effects. The first round of eBooks is now available through the iPad bookstore,, and on the Stories from the Golden Age website at

These classic stories from the 1930’s and 40’s have been generating rave reviews, including this one from Publishers Weekly:

“Demonstrating his unique ability to relate even the most complicated story with a keen eye for detail and realism, Hubbard’s stunning writing ability and creative imagination set him apart as one of the greatest literary figures of the 20th century.”

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 (Hercule 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, westerns, mystery, detective, fantasy, science fiction and even some romance, using his own and 15 pen names.
