G-8 and His Battle Aces #106 Audiobook
Bombs from the Murder Wolves
by Robert J. Hogan
Read by Nick Santa Maria
 
 
They called G-8 the Flying Spy. History never recorded his exploits—and for good reason! No one would ever believe World War I was that wild!
 
Trapped in the vaults of Europe’s most feared Murder Master, the Ace American Flying Spy makes his last desperate gamble to track down the secret of the deadliest weapon any war has ever known — bombs which are piloted by living men, who have sworn to destroy a nation. G-8 must escape from the catacombs of Hell on Earth to save thousands from death!
 
In the late 1920s, Pulp magazines of all kinds were in the hands of millions of readers. With the country tightly in the grip of the Depression, people of all sorts were seeking some way to escape and Pulp magazines were cheap and widely available in nearly every genre imaginable. One specific type of story blazed to popularity and, oddly enough, this particular genre took a look back at the past, at aviation during World War One.
 
The debut of G-8 and His Battle Aces in October 1933 changed the face of Aviation Pulp forever. Popular Publications’ President Harry Steeger allowed author Robert J. Hogan to not only put this new hero in the fictional skies, but also to create spectacular, even supernatural enemies for the Battle Aces to protect the world against.
 
The setting of G-8’s tales was a major reason for the series’ success. Readers just didn’t want flying stories; they were particularly interested in tales from the last Great War. There was something that, for a brief time, captured the imagination of readers about pilots during World War One. But, with this obviously being something that would end as quickly as it started, Popular Publication allowed Hogan to up the ante even more.
 
Nick Santa Maria brings G-8, Nippy and Bull to thrilling life in their desperate struggle to defeat an airborne nemesis unlike anything they have ever before encountered in Bombs from the Murder Wolves. Originally published in the October, 1943 issue of G-8 and His Battle Aces magazine.
 
Nick DeGregorio composed the music for the G-8 and His Battle Aces series of audiobooks.
