G-8 and His Battle Aces #15 Audiobook
The Blizzard Staffel
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!
Cut off from Allied lines, the 162nd American division was in a death spot. There was only one way of reaching them — and that was by air. But it was practically impossible to fly through the blizzard even then raging along the front. As G-8 stared down at the snow-bound valley he knew H.Q.’s fears were realized. The 162nd division was doomed, short of food and ammunition. Thousands of Yanks near death. But grimly he took up their horror trail, riding storm skies to spring the enemy snare with suicide lead!
Two new pulp characters debuted in 1933. Each of these heroes would leave their own indelible marks on pulp fans and heroic fiction for decades. Both exist, at least initially, because of Popular Publications’ leader, Henry Steeger. Finding himself in need of a series or two to capture a bit of the success competitor Street & Smith had found with The Shadow, Steeger began looking for his own hero to fight the good fight. He ended up with two, both coincidentally debuting in the same month and year. One was a dark, mysterious figure, similar in some ways to The Shadow, who fought insidious evil in the streets of New York, often with hundreds of bodies filling the streets. This was, of course, The Spider. The second hero, however, fought evil and tyranny above the dark alleys and skyscrapers, literally putting the wild in ‘wild blue yonder.’ G-8, both a man with many skills and someone that readers could relate to, battled evil on metallic wings for nearly 11 years.
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 ‘The Blizzard Staffel’. Originally published in the December 1934 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.
