The Spider #56 Audiobook
When Thousands Slept in Hell
by Wayne Rogers writing as Grant Stockbridge
Read by Nick Santa Maria
Sinisterly beckoning, the long bony finger signaled Manhattan to its mass death — slaying hundreds of helpless victims who dared sink into a sleep from which there could be no awakening this side of hell! While the Underworld’s lawless hordes looted, only Richard Wentworth, as the Spider, dared fight, die and fight again for a fear-crazed people against a murder-Morpheus whose human quarry drowsed into death — and whose grim weapon was a Slaying Sandman sworn to turn New York into a Slumberland of Slaughter!
During the Golden Age of Pulp Fiction, three publications ranked as the most popular: The Shadow, Doc Savage, and the Spider. Of these three archetypal Pulp characters, the Spider was definitely the most outrageous.
The Spider followed the established pulp pattern of a wealthy man-about-town, Richard Wentworth III, master of disguise, dilettante of the arts, in perfect physical condition, and completely devoted to the pursuit of justice for the down-trodden, no matter what the cost to himself or loved ones. Secretly donning a decrepit black hat, a tattered black cape, a false hunch to his shoulders, a lank wig of stringy hair, an application of sinister face makeup and a pair of .45 automatics, Wentworth prowls the streets of New York as his alter-ego the Spider, chasing down criminal masterminds bent on enslaving or destroying humanity. Much of the action takes place in the tenements and slums, the poor and lower classes victimized as readily as the rich.
Nick Santa Maria reads When Thousands Slept in Hell with the crackling intensity you have come to expect of his superb talent. Originally published in The Spider magazine, May, 1938.
