Stories from the Golden Age Review & Giveaway ends 7/29 daily

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 had the opportunity to review the some of the audio books and I can say I really liked them. I was able to light some candles and sit in the quite and listen to the story while I was able to catch up on blogging & emails. I loved how I was able to let my mind go and open up to the story I was listening to. I found myself even dreaming about the story I listen to. I liked the paper I got with the audio books. Here are some of the stories I review:

In an attempt to reclaim his stolen oil fields, Bob Sherman secretly hires on as a deckhand aboard the yacht of Herbert Marmion, the man who ruthlessly stole them. When a hurricane sends the yacht to an uncharted island, the entire crew is captured by pirates—including Marmion’s beautiful daughter.

Doughface Jack acquires phenomenal mental powers after a brain operation and now he can instantaneously heal, kill or make the old young. Goaded by a vengeful and beautiful woman, Doughface is propelled headlong towards the ultimate seat of power! 

Striking gold, Tim Beckdolt is a man on the brink of a new life—until a killer forces him at gunpoint to mine it—jumping his claim. Tim manages to escape, but soon finds himself being pursued like an animal in a bloodthirsty manhunt through vicious terrain.
