  • (1888PressRelease) May 01, 2013 - While L. Ron Hubbard is best known as the founder of the Scientology religion, he is also one of the world's most popular fiction writers, publishing hundreds of works over a career that spanned more than five decades. Authoring everything from science fiction to romance, action and fantasy to adventure, his name-and pen names-became synonymous with good reading.

    One of his tales will be performed in a theatrical setting at the end of May in the community room of the Church of Scientology. Pastor of the Church, Rev. Brian Fesler says, "If you remember old-time radio shows, of if you would like to experience one for the first time, this is the show to see. It is a free community event, all are welcome."

    L. Ron Hubbard was among the most prolific and popular writers during the Golden Age of Pulp Fiction. Between 1934 and 1940, some 140 L. Ron Hubbard tales appeared in the pages of legendary Pulps-often as many as three titles an issue and bylined under some fifteen pen names. To meet such demand, Hubbard regularly produced between seventy-five and a hundred thousand words a month, with a 90 percent acceptance rate from publishers-first draft, first submission.

    In 2011, the Church presented the first of these stories with "Ghost Town - Gun Ghost," and last year it was the adventure story "The Trail of the Red Diamonds."

    The theatrical presentation will take place at the end of May in the community room at the Church of Scientology, 1130 8th Avenue South. For more information, contact Julie Brinker at 615-687-4600.
