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.


Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard received two Guiness World records
In a ceremony still holding its uniqueness in 2008 Guinness World Records choose to honour Hubbard at the Book Fair by awarding him two world records. The first confirmed that he is the world's most published author with 1084 works exceeding the record held by Brazilian author Jose Carlos Ryoki with 1,058. Guinness also officially verified that Hubbard exceeded his own previous record as the world's most translated author when his works were published in six more languages raising the record from 65 to 71.

Mr. Kalyan Shah, President of India's Publishers And Booksellers Guild, the organizers of the Kolkata Book Fair, the world's largest consumer book fair, presented the Guinness World Record certificates to L. Ron Hubbard's literary agency, Author Services Inc. (Los Angeles). Shah described Hubbard as "one of the world's most influential authors whose many works of fiction and non-fiction have both entertained and enlightened readers on all continents and contributed to our emerging global culture. 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."-

The languages in which books by L. Ron Hubbard are available include Afrikaans, Albanian, Amharic, Arabic, Armenian, Azeri, Basque, Belo Russian, Bengali, Brazilian, Bulgarian, Chinese, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dari-Farsi, Dutch, Estonian, Farsi, Finnish, French, Georgian, German, Greek, Guarani, Hausa, Hebrew, Hindi, Hungarian, Icelandic, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Kannada, Kazakh, Khmer, Kirundi, Korean, Kyrgyz, Latvian, Lithuanian, Macedonian, Malayalam, Mexican, Mongolian, Nepalese, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Punjabi, Romanian, Russian, Samoan, Serbian, Sinhalese, Slovak, Slovenian, Spanish, Swahili, Swedish, Tagalog, Taiwanese, Tamil, Thai, Turkish, Ukrainian, Urdu, Uzbek, Vietnamese, Xhosa and Zulu.

Already in 2006 total sales of Hubbard's fiction and non-fiction works have surpassed 230 million copies with 19 New York Times best-sellers.

 

I am interested in the field of photography and religion, and I like to write and spread news that I can't find in the main stream media.
