G-8 and His Battle Aces #93 Audiobook

Death Is My Destiny

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 battle guns are silent in the grim, gray dawn of war — and the legions of horror march unopposed over the fallen bodies of their foe... While terror prowls the night skies, and death lurks in ambush behind every cloud, G-8 and his Battle Aces, alone and at bay, face the sky master who is wiping an Empire’s crack fighting men from the face of the earth — without a shot being fired!
 
Readers of Pulp magazines in the late 1920s and throughout the 1930s had a particular fascination for Aviation stories. Not simply the daring exploits of pilots, but particularly fans wanted tales set in an often romanticized version of a war past. World War One became the setting for many stories and series featuring highflying heroes, but many crashed and burn after just a few tales told. But, not G-8 and His Battle Aces. Author Robert J. Hogan wrote the series himself for its entire run of 110 issues.
 
Another interesting note about Hogan’s tenure with G-8 is that he wrote under his own name. Every adventure carried Robert J. Hogan as a byline. Long running series, such as Doc Savage or The Shadow, usually ran under a house name. This made it possible for other writers to step in at times and readers allegedly never be aware of the difference. Hogan, however, hammered out every tale, and this was while he wrote for other pulp magazines and even, for a short time, wrote the novel length The Mysterious Wu Fang stories. At one point, it was believed Robert J. Hogan was writing two million words a year for Pulp magazines.
 
Nick Santa Maria brings G-8, Nippy and Bull to thrilling life in their desperate struggle to defeat a destructive nemesis unlike anything they have ever before encountered in Death Is My Destiny. Originally published in the August 1941 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.
