The Best of Argosy #1 Audiobook
Selected by Robert Weinberg
Sting of the Blue Scorpion
by George F. Worts writing as Loring Brent
Read by Milton Bagby
Beginning in 1882, Frank A. Munsey’s Argosy magazine was the first and most influential pulp magazine of the 20th century.

At its height, it was published each and every week, and contained a veritable cornucopia of fabulous fiction in all genres. Detective and mystery stories. Westerns. Love stories. Sports. Even science-fiction and fantasy filled its pages. Esteemed writers ranging from Edgar Rice Burroughs to Erle Stanley Gardner graced its beloved pages.

When Argosy finally folded in 1978, it was no longer a fiction magazine, but it was, and remains to this day, a powerhouse pulp periodical.

Now Radio Archives is delving into the back pages of this celebrated magazine in an effort to present some of the best feature fiction Argosy presented during its near-century of publication. Overseeing this production is one of the great scholars of the pulp era, novelist Robert Weinberg, who we are proud to have join the Radio Archives team.

“Radio Archives is issuing the best of the pulps in audio and eBook format,” he says. “It’s a pleasure to work with them, bringing back some of the greatest action fiction ever published for modern fans!”

Bob’s first selection spotlights one of the most popular Argosy authors of the 1930s. Georg F. Worts, whether under his own name or the pseudonym of Loring Brent, was a Munsey mainstay going back to World War I.

Arguably his most popular creation was Peter Moore, the American adventurer known in the Orient as Peter the Brazen, otherwise famed as the Man of Bronze. Doc Savage writer Lester Dent was a huge fan of Argosy, and read it every week without fail. No doubt he was influenced by Peter the Brazen when he created his own Man of Bronze in 1933.

Undoubtedly the most diabolical foe Peter the Brazen encountered during his exciting sojourn in Asia was the Man with the Jade Brain, otherwise known as the enigmatic Blue Scorpion.

For our inaugural Argosy audiobook, we present the first thrilling encounter between these two implacable antagonists, “Cave of the Blue Scorpion,” and its novel-length sequel, Sting of the Blue Scorpion. This is a clash of pulp titans set against an exotic locale. You will never forget George F. Worts compelling stories, nor his clashing antagonists. Read by Milton Bagby.

Milton Bagby is a veteran radio announcer and voiceover specialist who first turned to audiobooks in 2010. Since then, Milton has worked on over two dozen audiobook projects as a narrator or producer. Drawing upon years of stage acting and the occasional bit part in films, Milton uses his experience to create characters that stand out in the ear of the listener.

“I am very much aware that a perfect stranger is going to invest eight or ten hours listening to me tell a story. I do my best to give the listener an experience in which the characters in that story come alive and sound real.”

When not behind a microphone, Milton is a writer.  In addition to the well-received Rick Burkhart crime novels, Milton writes a line of 1950s style pulp stories, and is the author of dozens of magazine articles and two non-fiction books.  Milton and his wife live in Nashville.
