G-8 and His Battle Aces #54 Audiobook
Patrol of the Phantom
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 Gray Ghosts of the Sky have bony hands and do the killing of the Phantom! Herr Geist they called him, and his hands were quicker than the eye, his methods even swifter than the guns of the Master Spy! It was Herr Geist who did the bidding of Koln, the Butcher, and lived to regret the service that he gave! A battle with Hell and Destruction above the earth, and a thousand chances for a fighting man to die!
Out of war-torn skies soars…G-8 and His Battles Aces! The greatest combat pilot of the War to End All Wars, G-8’s true name was stricken from all official records. Flying a supercharged warplane, backed by his wild wingmen, Bull Martin and Nippy Weston, G-8 fought the most horrific foes the Kaiser could throw at him.
Author Robert J. Hogan dished up German Zombies, Wolf-men, Harpies, Martians, and even tentacled floating monsters seemingly inspired by H. P. Lovecraft. Once, Hogan throttled his imagination back to normal speed. The result was that hapless Allied warplanes found themselves ensnared in the sky-high web of a Zeppelin-sized tarantula. He called that one ‘The Spider Staffel’. Most of these monstrosities were the work of Germany’s seemingly endless supply of mad scientists, chief of whom was G-8’s recurring Nemesis, Herr Doktor Krueger. It was a wonder that the Kaiser lost the war.
It was a war that finally ended G-8’s adventures. A shortage of pulp paper during World War II led to the Master Spy’s last flight with the cancellation of the series 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 ‘Patrol of the Phantom’. Originally published in the March 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.
