Will Murray´s Pulp Classics line of audiobooks are of the highest quality and feature the great Pulp Fiction stories of the 1930s-1950s. The Secret 6 audiobook, #1 October 1934 Criminals quaked at the name The Secret 6. And for four glorious issues, this team of six crime fighters took on some of the weirdest and most fantastic antagonists that ever reared their heads in the pulp magazines. It was where weird menace met six normal men with no strange gadgets or outlandish skills. The utterly amazing stories were written by Robert J. Hogan, better known for writing the G-8 and his Battle Aces stories. But after four issues, the over-the-top action came to an end and Popular Publications pulled the plug on the series. These vintage pulp tales are now reissued for today´s listeners as audiobooks. Table of Contents: The Red Shadow by Robert J.

The most diabolical criminal ever to menace America, Tang-akhmut, the Egyptian, had descended like a blighting plague on Cincinnati. Tang-akhmut, leading a new and terrible army of dwarfed monsters - scourging helpless women with poisoned and barbed whips; who set about systematically to wreck the water supply of the city and then set uncontrollable conflagrations to cover his looting. Richard Wentworth, the Spider, penniless, a man outside the law, once more faces him in single-handed battle! While the Spider borrowed his black slouch hat and cloak from the Shadow, the rest of the character was drastically different. Wentworth is strongly emotional, plumbing the thrills of victory as readily, and as deeply, as the depths of despair during his escapades. His long-suffering fiancée, Nita van Sloan, is a worthy character in her own right, often relegated to the traditional role of hostage-bait. As additional exotic spice, Wentworth maintains a Sikh manservant/warrior companion, Ram Singh, as well as chauffeur Ronald Jackson, the sergeant from his old army days. Rounding out the cast of characters is Commissioner of Police Stanley Kirkpatrick, Wentworth´s staunch friend and the Spider´s greatest adversary; Kirkpatrick himself lives in a state of constant angst for fear that duty will one day force him to send his friend to the electric chair as punishment for the Spider´s crimes. This thrilling Spider audiobook features acclaimed voice talent Nick Santa Maria, who has made the Spider his own! ´´The Devil´s Death Dwarfs´´ originally published in The Spider magazine, October 1936. 1.

We switch. I bait. Let me help you snag a date. All through college, Blanche Carter was known as the matchmaker. Her friends came to her for the perfect pick-up line for that cute guy in chemistry class--or the best zinger for that annoying frat boy. Now out of college and living in Washington DC, she´s parlayed her talent into a unique consulting business: she runs the online dating profiles of the Capitol´s most eligible women. Armed with a battalion of dating rules, Blanche is an expert at helping her clients meet the right man--and put their best foot forward on that first date. But although she´ll happily spend her days messaging handsome strangers (and fending off dick pics) on behalf of her clients, Blanche´s most important rule is the one she has for herself: no relationships. Blanche has seen too much heartbreak to believe in love anymore. When one of the most annoying men she knows--Henry, a friend of a friend with whom she always ends up getting into heated political arguments--shows up as one of her favorite clients´ possible matches, Blanche gamely messages him. But sparks fly in more ways than one, and Blanche quickly finds herself faced with an ethical dilemma--and possibly breaking her own rule about love...
