  • Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater, FL (1888PressRelease) October 20, 2011 - On Saturday, the 29th of October, guests are invited to attend the Golden Age Theater of Tampa Bay's production of "The Death Flyer." Originally written by bestselling author L. Ron Hubbard in 1936, the story was published in Fantasy Magazine that year.

    The story is a gripping mystery - a tale about Jim Bellamy, stuck on train tracks when he encounters a train that supposedly crashed more than a decade ago - or did it? Described by one reviewer as "a great ghost story that would be worth listening to around the campfire, especially if there is a train track nearby," the Death Flyer provides all the elements of a classic horror story, without being too scary.

    Starting at 6pm in the Fort Harrison's Crystal Ballroom, attendees will enjoy a dinner buffet created by the facility's Gold-medal winning chefs. This will be followed by live entertainment and capped by the performance - starring local actors and presented with the music and sound effects reminiscent of an old-time radio show.

    "These stories are hugely entertaining and are just pure fun," said Sigal, who manages the troupe. "I am very excited to be introducing people to this form of entertainment through Mr. Hubbard's fiction works - he's the master."

    The Fort Harrison is located at 210 S. Fort Harrison Ave in Clearwater. There is complimentary valet parking available. Tickets for the event are $50, which includes dinner. To get tickets, please call (727) 445-4398.

    Stories from the Golden Age contains 153 stories all written by Hubbard during the 1930s and 1940s-in genres ranging from Mystery to Thriller, Science Fiction and Fantasy to Adventure and Western, using his own and fifteen pen names-widely considered America's Golden Age of Fiction. The print version of each work includes the pulp fiction artwork that originally accompanied the story in magazine publication. In addition, each title offers a full-cast, unabridged audio theatrical presentation complete with theme music and sound effects.
