G-8 and His Battle Aces #53 Audiobook
Wings for the Dead
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!
The skies grow red where the Eagles spread their wings and only Death has the voice of command! “Watch for the Man in Armor!” were the dying words that G-8 heard, before he started on a hunt through the Skies of Hell where Death is the gruesome host! G-8 saw these vultures ride down the airlanes and blot out the living with their bloody hands! But it is hard to fight men who have no fears. And there is only one grave when there are Wings For The Dead!
The chief reason for G-8’s success was not simply that Robert J. Hogan was a wonderfully imaginative writer — although he was — but because author and publisher Harry Steeger realized that interest in the top aces of the Great War was a fad that could wane at any time. So they juiced up G-8’s exploits by recounting tall tales of a World War that might have been envisioned by a chronicler who was half Edgar Alan Poe and half H. G. Wells. Robert Hogan managed that juggling act with straight-faced, single-minded aplomb.
G-8’s weird war began with The Bat Staffel, a wild yarn pitting the Flying Spy and wing-mates Bull Martin and Nippy Weston against monstrous German-controlled bats breathing fatal fumes. It went over so well that Hogan periodically revisited the creepy concept. The Vampire Staffel. The Blood Bat Staffel. The Bloody Wings of the Vampire.
Graced by the garish and grisly covers of artist Frederick Blakeslee, G-8 battled Germany’s Halloween shock troops for over a decade, the magazine being cancelled in 1944.
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 for the Dead’. Originally published in the February 1938 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.
