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!
Locked in the heart of mysterious Burma is a menace that spells doom to Allied Wings, as G-8 flies into the darkness on the most dangerous mission of his career — to combat the dread secret of the doomed legion who were men by day — and ravenous tigers by night!
In 1933, fans of Pulp magazines were introduced to a hero, in some ways similar to others, but different in all the right ways. Popular Publications’ G-8 and His Battle Aces featured an aviator and spy fighting the most recent Great War, but not the World War One its readers knew. This man did not simply take on the Kaiser’s best pilots. G-8 fought monsters, mad scientists, death rays, and even aliens, all conveniently on the side of the enemy, of course.
G-8 stood out from other Pulp heroes in that, although he had a certain skill set, he was, at his heart, just another soldier fighting in a War for his country. He was not the peak of human perfection like Doc Savage, or a dark avenger like The Shadow. He was a pilot taking on unbelievable odds.
G-8 and His Battle Aces proved popular almost immediately upon its debut in October 1933. The magazine hit the stands at the height of the Aviation Pulp craze. Millions of readers, especially young fans, dreamed of donning pilot goggles and climbing into flying machines. And Author Robert J. Hogan made sure his readers had plenty to enjoy. For a period during the 110 issue run of the magazine, it was believed Hogan was writing more than two million words a year for Pulp magazines, more than any other Pulp writer ever.
Nick Santa Maria brings G-8, Nippy and Bull to thrilling life in their desperate struggle to defeat a deadly nemesis unlike anything they have ever before encountered in Wings of the Death Tigers. Originally published in the June, 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.
