This is L. Ron Hubbbard's third Guinness World Record!
London, UK—With 185 audio books, L. Ron Hubbard has just garnered his 3rd world record as confirmed by Guinness World Records, it was announced last month at the London International Book Fair. The official statement reads, “Most audio books for one author is L. Ron Hubbard with 185 published audio books as of 21st April 2009.”
“Past Guinness world records issued include ‘Most translated author,’ and the world's ‘Most published author,’” stated Gunhild Jacobs, Executive Director for Trade Operations Author Services, Inc., the literary agency that handles the combined works of Hubbard, from her offices in Hollywood upon receiving the news. She also pointed out that the New York Times bestselling novelised version of Hubbard’s screen play Ai Pedrito! written by Kevin J. Anderson, held the record from Guinness as the largest book signing in history, until the New York Times bestselling version of Hubbard’s A Very Strange Trip, novelised by Dave Wolverton, beat this record a year later.
“We have had excellent success with our new line of audiobooks,” Jacobs continued. “With the attention to detail that we put into their production, our audiobooks have already been recognised by Publishers Weekly, AudioFile Magazine, School Library Journal and Booklist for their superb quality. Plus, two of our audiobooks are up for Audie Awards. We feel that we are contributing to a reading renaissance with these stories.”
In a recent published review of the just-released Orders is Orders audiobook, Publishers Weekly stated, “Demonstrating his unique ability to relate even the most complicated story with a keen eye for detail and realism, Hubbard’s stunning writing ability and creative imagination set him apart as one of the greatest literary figures of the 20th century.”
To help listeners understand how these audiobooks were created and listening quality achieved, a special video presentation entitled, The Making of a Golden Age Audiobook, has been created and can be seen at: http://www.goldenagestories.com/html/podcasts.php#6.
