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. Hogan It struck out of the night, a phantom monster whose blood-red shadow brought death to everyone it touched. New York was panic-stricken. Beneath its reign of terror, the police were helpless.

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.

By what strange twist of Fate did the fearful menace, which was to shadow every man and woman in New York City, first rear its venomous head in the distant Caribbean? When terror suddenly boarded a little tramp steamer and left crimson havoc littering its narrow decks, a spluttering wireless flashed the doom of every living thing aboard. Within a week, the same ghastly fate struck a gigantic new ocean liner, its luxurious cabins occupied by the elite and powerful of a dozen different nations! Death - swift and terrible - rode the ocean lanes. And the Spider - taken for once off guard - was supposedly dying in a hospital room on the very day when that terror from the seas first showed itself above the city skyline. How can the Spider, fighting death himself, help the nation he loves in her hour of greatest need? The great pulp magazines of the 1930s and ´40s produced a number of heroes, but none as action oriented as the Spider. From October 1933 to December 1943, the Spider was the scourge of the underworld, doling out his own particular brand of justice and imprinting his dreaded red Spider seal on the foreheads of those he killed for the good of mankind. The Spider followed the established pulp pattern of a wealthy man-about-town, Richard Wentworth III, master of disguise, dilettante of the arts, in perfect physical condition, and completely devoted to the pursuit of justice for the downtrodden, no matter what the cost to himself or loved ones. Secretly donning a decrepit black hat, a tattered black cape, a false hunch to his shoulders, a lank wig of stringy hair, an application of sinister face makeup, and a pair of .45 automatics, Wentworth prowls the streets of New York as his Spider alter ego, chasing down criminal masterminds bent on enslaving or destroying humanity. Nick Santa Maria reads ´´Builders of the Black Empire´´ with all the intensity of his superb talent. Originally published in The Spider magazine, October 1934. 1. Language: English.
