G-8 and His Battle Aces #109 Audiobook
Wings of the Death Monster
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!
 
Under the earth and over the skies it came, a nightmare killer spawned from the brain of Hunland’s most dreaded Murder Master. And into a valley of flaming horror flew G-8, in a last desperate quest to fight Germany’s secret weapon. Even the Battle Aces may not survive the terror that grips war torn skies and the men who fly them!
 
Robert J. Hogan, the author of all 110 G-8 pulp adventures, found his inspiration for the character’s name in his own childhood experience with flying. Spending time at the G-8 Ranch in Colorado, Hogan took his first flight to get there. His new fascination with flying carried him into the rather new air corps during World War One. Hogan received training that would later prove invaluable to his career in Pulp aviation fiction, but he never saw battle overseas.
 
Hogan found work following the war as a demonstration flyer and supporter of some airplane manufacturers. Left jobless due to the 1929 Stock Market Crash, Hogan turned to writing Pulp fiction. According to some, he did this after reading some of the tales written during the Aviation fiction craze, inspired in part by the adventures of Charles Lindbergh. Hogan believed that if anyone could write such tales, he could. 
 
Submitting his first story to Wings Magazine, Robert Hogan started down his path as a writer, one that brought him to Harry Steeger’s attention in 1933. President of Popular Publications, Steeger was looking for just the right author to create Pulp’s next great aviation hero. Thankfully for millions of fans, Hogan was that man.
 
Nick Santa Maria brings G-8, Nippy and Bull to thrilling life in their desperate struggle to defeat a murderous nemesis unlike anything they have ever before encountered in Wings of the Death Monster. Originally published in the April 1944 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.
