Golden Age Radio Dramas Feature Mystery and Suspense – Galaxy Press Releases Unabridged Pulp Fiction Audio Books on CD

Stories from the Golden Age audio book collection brings the suspense-filled entertainment of theatre of the mind to fans of mystery audio books.

Hollywood, CA – September 19, 2010 (via PressReleasePivot.com) — Do you remember the days of The Lone Ranger, Buck Rogers and The Shadow? While these characters were national icons fifty years ago, their likes have been resurrected by Hollywood publisher Galaxy Press, in a stunning new collection of audio books on CD, available from GoldenAgeStories.com

“We have created a new form of audio entertainment with the Stories From the Golden Age that is unlike anything on the market,” says John Goodwin of Galaxy Press. “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 incredible instincts of accomplished actors and artists.”

A fascinating series of behind-the-scenes videos, showing the making of Golden Age pulp fiction audio books can be found on the company’s YouTube channel. The first of the two “making of” videos can be seen here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XOtwOYBL1Zs

These audio books aren’t simply light entertainment; they are a full multimedia cinematic experience. Those who enjoyed the Indiana Jones or Star Wars series are sure to love the audio book CDs from Golden Age Stories ( http://www.goldenagestories.com/audiobooks ).

Stories from the Golden Age is a line of 80 books and multi-cast, unabridged audio books, featuring 153 stories written by L. Ron Hubbard in the 1930s and 1940s, in any of the several popular genres of the day: mystery, thriller, adventure, science fiction, fantasy and western, using his own and any of his 15 pen names.

These classic stories have been receiving national acclaim as well.

“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,” says Publishers Weekly.

The Stories From the Golden Age titles 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.
