Ned Pines was the man behind a publishing company that went under many names during its existence. Known at different times as Better, Standard, and Thrilling Publications, and also as Nedor during its comic book phase, it’s the company’s tenure as Thrilling that saw the birth of one of Pulp’s greatest heroes, The Phantom Detective! Taking a cue from the success of Street & Smith’s The Shadow magazine, the first such magazine to feature a hero as its title and lead feature, Pines imagined that following suit might prove lucrative for his own endeavor. Putting this intent into action, Thrilling Publications released the first issue of The Phantom Detective magazine in February 1933, just a scant thirty or so days before Street & Smith delivered another soon to be legend, Doc Savage, in his own magazine. Keeping up with both his predecessor and the hero that followed him by a month, The Phantom Detective ran in his own magazine for 170 issues, just behind the other two characters’ achievements. This is due, in part according to some fans and experts, to the plethora of authors Pines possibly intentionally made sure contributed to The Phantom Detective’s stories. Pines’ masked sleuth also set a record the other two did not, his magazine being published, thanks to some scheduling issues along the way, for a total of twenty years!
Death to a Diplomat was originally published in the October 1945 issue of The Phantom Detective Magazine and is read with pulse pounding intensity by award winning voice actor Milton Bagby.
