G-8 and His Battle Aces #43 Audiobook
Vultures of the White Death
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!
Like the rain it came, but unlike the rain it was not a blessing. Death, fierce gruesome death, which clings to the flesh and claims it for its own — Death from which there is no escape rains down through the skies of War. What sick mind was behind this? Whose was the courage to meet this madman’s scourge? When G-8 walks among the living dead, there is a reason for his madness. There is a purpose to his sacrifice that is greater than any man’s life — a purpose that he hopes will solve the greatest mystery of the War!
Despite the Great Depression, Popular Publications was booming in 1933. Part of their Autumn expansion plans entailed launching The Spider, and a title to be aimed at the legions of readers who drank up fictionalized accounts of pilots gracing the skies and keeping the world safe below while fighting and dying above.
Robert J. Hogan was doubtless the first writer publisher Harry Steeger considered when casting about for a suitable scribe for this title, Hogan being one of Steeger’s favorites in the Popular stable. The designated author would have to know his rudders and ailerons—and be reliable. Hogan had been an air cadet during World War I, though he saw no combat.
Hogan’s idea was part Eddie Rickenbacker and part What Price Glory?— a play focused on the horrors of war as counterpoint to comradeship in the trenches. Only in this case, by horror, Popular Publications meant something far more horrific than mustard-gas trench warfare atrocities.
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 ‘Vultures of the White Death’. Originally published in the April 1937 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.
