G-8 and His Battle Aces #49 Audiobook
The Hand of Steel
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!
There is blood on the hook of The Hand of Steel that cuts its red path across the skies, and casts the shadow of Death upon the wings of the Master Spy! Out of the fires of war, fed by the blood and hatred of destruction, comes the Cripple of Hartsburg! What is the curse be has placed on the head of the Allies? — what mad vengeance is sought by his distorted brain? Only G-8 can learn the answer; and to find it he must search the hungry jaws of death!
Normally, pulp publishers put house names on series that might seem risky, or to make sure they were not stymied by unreliable authors. But Robert J. Hogan's byline was pure pulp gold, so Popular Publications' Harry Steeger took a chance. The series would carry the author's true name for every single story, 110 in total. Hogan never let him down.
Before it was all over, G-8 battled weird menaces ranging from Martians to Zombies, with assorted undead minions of the Kaiser in between. If Hogan couldn't concoct a fresh beast-man, a clutch of cave men or freshly-defrosted Viking berserkers would keep readers riveted. Recurring foes came and went. G-8 finally vanquished Herr Doktor Krueger late in the series. Or did he? Readers would never know, as Hogan kept G-8's adventures exclusively set in World War One until the series' end in 1944.
Through it all, Robert J. Hogan never seemed ashamed to have his Christian name attached to effusions bearing overblown titles like 'The Flying Coffins of the Damned'. And he a minister's son.
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 Hand of Steel'. Originally published in the October 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.
