L. Ron Hubbard's FEAR Celebrates 75th Anniversaryby BWW News Desk - Nov 5, 2015
It was 75 years ago, in the July 1940 issue of Unknown Fantasy Fiction, that 'Fear' was published. With at least 25 editions since its initial publication, 'Fear' has been recognized as the prototype novel of modern horror fiction.
Galaxy Press celebrated Fear's anniversary at their Halloween event which included a theatrical performance of another of Hubbard's chilling tales, 'Dead Men Kill.' As part of the evening's activities, a Diamond Jubilee presentation from The Strand Magazine, America's leading mystery magazine for readers passionate about great mysteries, was made by actor Ramon Terrell (Supernatural, Arrow and iZombie) on The Strand's behalf before a packed house.
Andrew Gulli, Managing Editor of The Strand Magazine stated in a letter congratulating the publisher on the anniversary, 'Fear is a Tour-de-Force in the world of horror. Not only is it chilling and tense, it's also one of the most unique and creative novels I have ever read.' He went on, 'From the point of view of a publisher, I can see how this inspired and influenced some of the greatest genre authors of our time such as Stephen King, Ray Bradbury, and Robert Block. The book is as chilling, tense, and as brilliant now as it was when it was published.'
And it is these great genre authors who have recognized the story's impact:
Stephen King called Fear, 'one of the really, really good ones.'
Isaac Asimov said, 'Of all L. Ron Hubbard's stories, this is my favorite.'
Ray Bradbury wrote, 'A true Scare!... Fear deeply influenced me.'
Ray Faraday Nelson stated, 'Fear in particular, directly influenced all my work.'
Robert Block noted, 'Fear is L. Ron Hubbard's finest work.'
With the working title 'Phantasmagoria,' Hubbard began writing this story in January 1940 where he conceived a main character who unexpectedly loses hours from his life. Hubbard explains, 'He strives to locate his deeds while missing everywhere but in the right place, for he fears to look there.' And as for the story's style, he added, 'And I think a nice, delicate style is best suited. Paint everything in sweetness and light and then begin to dampen it, not with the style, but with the events themselves.'
Fear is available from Galaxy Press, Amazon.com and BN.com in both print and digital formats. http://www.galaxypress.com/product/3-book-mystery-set/
Born on March 13, 1911 in Tilden, Nebraska, L. Ron Hubbard was one of America's most prolific writers of popular fiction producing over 15 million words of fiction with a writing career that spanned over five decades. During the 1930s and 40s he authored more than 200 short stories, novelettes and novels under his own name and any of his 15 pen names at a production rate of about 100,000 words a month. His published works from that era encompassed adventure, detective, science fiction, western and fantasy work and can be found at www.GalaxyPress.com. (more...)
