CLEARWATER, Fla. - Aug. 21, 2019 - PRLog -- In the story, The Professor Was a Thief, famous landmarks across New York City are disappearing. The Empire State Building has vanished into thin air. Gone, too, are Grant's Tomb and Grand Central Station. No one seems to have the answers, and hysteria is breaking out across the city. It's up to a grizzled old newspaper reporter known as "Pop" to get to the bottom of the vanishing buildings, before the entire city disappears, along with his job. The story was first published in the February 1940 issue of Astounding Science Fiction Magazine.

While The Professor was a Thief is a fictional story, L. Ron Hubbard was no stranger to New York City. As a matter of fact, between 1934-1936 Mr. Hubbard lived in a Greenwich Village basement apartment as a professional writer, just over 10 miles away from the famous landmarks he mentions in the story. "The Village," often called by the locals, was known as an artists' haven and the "Bohemian capital" for many decades.

Mr. Hubbard was among the most prolific and popular writers of the 20th century. Indeed, between 1934 and 1940, some 140 L. Ron Hubbard tales appeared in the pages of legendary pulp magazines—often as many as three titles an issue and bylined under some fifteen pen names. With 19 New York Times bestsellers and more than 350 million copies of his works in circulation, Mr. Hubbard is among the most acclaimed and widely read authors of our time.

The L. Ron Hubbard East Coast Theatre is a volunteer group founded in 2011. Their shows combine actors, costumes, lighting and sound effects to bring the exciting pulp-fiction stories written by L. Ron Hubbard to life.
