Will Murray's Pulp Classics #43
The Spider #69 Audiobook
Rule of the Monster Men
by Norvell W. Page writing as Grant Stockbridge
Read by Nick Santa Maria. Liner Notes by Will Murray

By 1939, Richard Wentworth had been operating as the Spider for nearly six harrowing years. He had been through everything a good pulp hero could expect to face. Malevolent master villains. Sinister Asian world conquerors. Mad scientists more diabolical than anything conceived before that point. And of course since the Spider was a wanted criminal, endless police officials, uniformed cops, homicide detectives and other officers of the law had been pursuing him with single-minded fervor.


A mere mortal would have succumbed back in 1933. Not the indomitable Richard Wentworth. He seemed to thrive on conditions of continuous peril. Yes, he did put down his mask and guns a time or two, vowing never to become the dreaded Spider again. But the call to battle always made his blood sing, and inevitably the Master of Men returned to battle the underworld in another blazing exploit.


The problem for his poor writer, Norvell W. Page, was that there are only so many plot variations for a hero who fought crime in his dual identities. So as the year 1939 dawned, Page and his editors must have put their heads together and asked themselves, “What can we do that we’ve never done before?”


Evidently, they decided to subject Dick Wentworth, his fiancee Nita van Sloan, and the other stalwart Spider crew to a monthly series of challenges designed to make the readers clutch at their hearts and rend their garments in sympathetic anguish.


The stirring sequence began with Rule of the Monster Men. Set against the backdrop of the 1939 New York World’s Fair, the Spider tackles the Wreck, a human fiend straight out of Terror Tales, who surgically transforms ordinary New Yorkers into subhuman beasts.That’s just the start of it!


We don’t want to give away the twists and turns that make up the deadly duel between the Master of Men and the malevolent Wreck in Rule of the Monster Men, except to warn don’t expect everybody to come out of this one unscathed.....


Nick Santa Maria once again brings the Spider to life in this incredible audiobook taken from the June, 1939 issue of The Spider. Also included is another popular Doc Turner story by Arthur Leo Zagat, “Doc Turner and the Winged Terror.”
