Tens of thousands of authors, publishers and book industry professionals gathered the annual Frankfurt Book Fair in October 2006, the largest and most important event for the international publishing industry. Many of the publishers' stands featured the books of hundreds of authors. Unique among them is New Era Publications, which publishes the work of only one author, L. Ron Hubbard.

He is not only a publishing phenomena, his works are a treasure to be shared by all who believe that humanity can find solutions to its many problems and build a better world for all."-
