G-8 and His Battle Aces #95 Audiobook
Horde of the Black Eagle
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!
 
Stunned, lost, the remnants of a once proud army charge unchallenged against an unseen foe — to die without being fired upon! And roaring across death-filled skies, G-8 and his Battle Aces gamble against fearful odds to come to grips with War’s most sinister phantom of doom — who has sworn to turn a mighty fortress into the funeral pyre of an Empire!
 
The most popular aviator in Pulp Fiction was actually created in a car. Going home to New Jersey from New York City, author Robert J. Hogan came up with the idea that would be G-8 and His Battle Aces. Having already met with Popular Publications’ President Harry Steeger, Hogan had been given the job of writing a daring new hero for Popular to take advantage of both the popular Hero centered Pulps as well as the fascination with aviation that was gripping the country at the time.
 
Hogan mapped out the basic ideas for G-8 and His Battle Aces while driving home from New York to New Jersey. Tangled in traffic in the Holland Tunnel, Hogan, according to Pulp lore, came up with the character’s name, motivation, and even the plot of the first story, one that would take Aviation Fiction where it had rarely gone before, if ever. Right into Weird Menace territory.
 
While there would be no shortage of regular pilots for the Battle Aces to take on, Hogan threw a whole other host of grotesque, fantastic enemies at his flyboys. War wasn’t just horrific because it was war, but now because it was the stuff of nightmares. From Martians to Vampires to giant spiders, G-8 flew in the least friendly skies Fiction could provide.
 
Nick Santa Maria brings G-8, Nippy and Bull to thrilling life in their desperate struggle to defeat a nemesis unlike anything they have ever before encountered in Horde of the Black Eagle. Originally published in the December 1941 issue of G-8 and His Battle Aces magazine.
