Stories From The Golden Age

It is with the deepest of apologies that I post this review.

A few months ago I was given a beautiful set of audio books from Galaxy Press from the collection called Stories from a Golden Age. They are a collection of stories written by L. Ron Hubbard which were beautifully transcribed into multicast audiorecordings with the voice and musical talents of many Broadway and Hollywood actors.

From the Golden Age Fictions website:

When you think of the word Pulp Fiction, you probably think of the blockbuster movie, but actually, Pulp Fiction was the literary phenomenon and leading source of entertainment in the 1930’s and 1940’s that produced thousands of short stories still influencing the writers of today’s most popular books and movies–character’s like Indiana Jones, Jack Sparrow, James Bond–all inspired by the these pulpwood paperbacks.

Now for the first time since their heyday, Galaxy Press has assembled the largest collection of stories from the most prolific writer of the pulp fiction era, L. Ron Hubbard. This collection, “Stories from the Golden Age”, includes over 150 audiobook stories spanning virtually every genre including: scifi, fantasy, western, mystery, adventure and more!

The award-winning, action-packed tales have also been brought to life in cinematically produced audiobook CD collections, performed by an all-star Hollywood cast. So get into the action!

Available in audiobook, paperback and digital download formats.”

I have personally listened to two stories, While Bugles Blow! and Killer’s Law, out of the six I was sent. I thoroughly enjoy Hubbard’s story-telling and his knack for weaving intricate plots that keep the reader (or in this case, listener) engaged throughout.

I especially love how Galaxy has recorded these stories to make them sound like radio programs complete with sound effects and actors playing parts instead of just one narrator narrating the entire story.

I’ve always been a fan of audiobooks.  They’re not just for your grandmother who can’t hold a book anymore.  They’re for busy people who like to multitask.  I enjoy audiobooks while I walk my giant furball, I mean dog, around the neighborhood.  I enjoy them on long car rides too, especially between states when there’s no radio signal and miles and miles of open, boring road.

I highly recommend this collection of audiobooks to anyone looking to expand their reading and listening horizons. And many thanks to Galaxy Press for the opportunity to try their product.

This is an original ROSCMM post and was written for Gallaxy Press who sent me several audiobooks for review.  These CDs, mp3 recordings, and books can be purchased at http://goldenagestories.com/.  All opinions are that of Jennifer herself and no, you can not steal my content, it’s called copyright, yo.
