CNN Host Larry King Grand Marshall for Hollywood Santa Christmas Parade Featuring Audiobook Float From Galaxy Press

Hollywood’s Pulp Fiction Era and stories from the Golden Age are represented in the Hollywood 2010 Christmas Parade

Hollywood, CA – December 3, 2010 (via PressReleasePivot.com) — Led by parade Grand Marshall Larry King, over fifty thousand enthusiastic revelers lined Hollywood Blvd to see the dozens of celebrities, floats, bands and balloons in the 2010 Hollywood Christmas Parade.

Two of the balloon entries – carried by more than 60 handlers including Kiwanis Key Club members, a local high school basketball team, members from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory and local businessmen – represented Stories from the Golden Age, a line of 80 books written by master storyteller L. Ron Hubbard during America’s golden age of pulp fiction.

The parade host Laura McKenzie, (World’s Funniest Moments) introduced the two floats, telling co-host Erik Estrada (from the TV show CHIPs), “Floating next to the treasure is Captain Tom Bristol, the main character from L. Ron Hubbard’s swashbuckling tale Under the Black Ensign.” ( http://www.GoldenAgeStories.com/seaadventure ) She went on to say that this story is one of Hubbard’s “80 books filled with adventure, mystery, science fiction and fantasy.”

Stories from the Golden Age is an 80-novel, 150-story series of trade paperback and multi-cast, unabridged audiobooks. The series showcases author L. Ron Hubbard’s pulp fiction masterpieces from the 1930s and 1940s, in multiple genres. This collection is one of the largest known releases of pulp fiction novels ever published by a single author and publisher.

Hubbard’s stories have been reproduced in their original format as both trade paperbacks (using original pulp artwork and inside illustrations), and as unabridged, multicast audiobooks with original music and fully produced, movie-like sound effects. The stories are also available as eBooks through the iPad bookstore, online from Barnes and Noble, Amazon.com and on the Stories from the Golden Age website at http://www.GoldenAgeStories.com/books

In addition to the print and audiobook formats, the Author Services 200-seat Theater located at Hollywood & Sycamore, just one block west of the famed Grauman’s Chinese Theatre, presents live weekly theatrical presentations (every Saturday night) and is open to all.

The Hollywood Santa Parade was sponsored by Associated Television, Toys for Tots and the City of Los Angeles. The first Hollywood parade first took place 82 years ago, in 1928 and was called the Santa Claus Lane Parade.
