L. Ron Hubbard Western Books Commemorated for Keeping the Old West...
In making the presentation, Bob Boze Bell said, From True West Magazine for all the fine work L. Ron Hubbard did in keeping the Old West alive. Few of L. Ron Hubbards contemporaries could invoke the natural authenticity of a western because to him, the western frontier was home. He had understood the tradition and spirit of the Old West that had comprised his daily life of a turn-of-the-20th-century Montana childhood. His fascination with the frontier and his immersion in its history and culture were the foundation for the 34 stories written in the 1930s and '40s and published in 15 western books in the Stories from the Golden Age.
Started in 1953, True West is headquartered in Cave Creek, Arizona, and publishes monthly. It is the world's oldest, continuously-published Western American magazine and relates American Old West history back to the present day to show the role contemporary Western heritage plays in keeping the spirit of the Old West alive today.
The Stories from the Golden Age contain 153 stories written by L. Ron Hubbard published in 80 volumes, in a wide spectrum of genres in addition to westerns, including adventure, mystery, detective, fantasy, science fiction, and even some romance, using his own and 15 pen names.
