Hollywood, CA (PRWEB) June 01, 2012
Proof of the power of a well-written story was made very clear when three Stories from the Golden Age volumes were named as winners in the 2012 International Book Awards. Originally published in the pulp paper magazines of the 1930s and ‘40s during America’s golden age of fiction, these stories validate the fact that not only did L. Ron Hubbard know how to tell a great story, he could do so in many genres—and the following thriller, military adventure and western stories provide the proof.
“Death Waits at Sundown by L. Ron Hubbard” Winner Western category. Containing three stories in the volume, True West Magazine wrote, “Hubbard’s trio has one thing in common—rough and tumble action with a twist, and all are a great read.”
“On Blazing Wings by L. Ron Hubbard” Winner – Audiobook: Fiction: Mystery/Thriller/Suspense. Reviewed by Midwest Book review, “On Blazing Wings follows David Duane, a mercenary ace fighter pilot with the soul of an artist… As Duane struggles to remember his true inner purpose, he finds himself at a perilous crossroads, for he yearns desperately to save the woman he loves… a woman who serves as a Russian officer… Highly recommended especially for fans of the Golden Age.”
“Tomb of the Ten Thousand Dead by L. Ron Hubbard” Winner Audiobook: Narration: Best Group Performance. Library Journal reviewed the title stating, it “is like a good Indiana Jones adventure. Gordon, a pilot hired to fly archaeologists on a dig, is framed for a team member’s murder. He escapes but is prodded into helping the group’s guide locate Alexander the Great’s fortune in buried treasure. The loot is guarded by Alexander’s troops, but they’re long dead—or are they?”
